Have you ever completed a full distance triathlon?  If so, you are amazing!  We had a great time sponsoring our very own trainer, Rylee, as she completed a full distance triathlon on a rainy Saturday in late April 2021.  Her race began with a 2.4 mile swim, followed by a rainy, 112 mile bike ride, and then a 26.2 mile run!  Rylee did outstanding!  For more details on Rylee’s triathlon journey, visit her website.

Meantime, while Rylee biked and ran, Abstract trainers Mike and Michelle Keelan talked with Rylee’s supporters and offered NormaTec compression boot sessions to visitors and others running on the trail behind Fleet Feet in Schererville. While compression boots are a fantastic recovery tool for triathlon training and post-race, anyone can benefit from compression boots.  Benefits of compression massage boots include:

  • Improve circulation
  • Enhance lymphatic drainage
  • Remove waste products including lactic acid
  • Improve range of movement and flexibility
  • Decrease recovery time
  • Allow your to train harder quicker
  • Relax and unwind
  • Increase flexibility and joint range of motion
  • Enhance the benefits of your cryotherapy session

 Also, they feel wonderful like a massage, and you control the pressure!  In addition, we shared information about our personal training program, whole body cryotherapy chamber, massage and stretch therapies.  All of these services are available at our gym in Shererville.  Your first two personal training sessions are always free!  Call 219-864-1727 to schedule.

Rylee finished the race strong and in great spirits.  The Abstract family felt proud to be a part of the experience.  A big thank you to our clients who came by the tent, called, and sent supportive messages throughout the day.  We look forward to seeing you in the gym, cryochamber, or out on the trails soon!
