We’ve all been there. One day, you’re fighting fit, lifting weights and dominating your cardio and the next you can hardly move. This is exactly why a post-workout recovery station is an essential part of any home gym set-up. With the right massage tools, plus a few other must-haves, you’ll be back up and running in no time.
Growing your home gym and need some new workout machines? Check out this article!
Think of it as the quiet corner in your home gym for catching your breath, quenching your thirst and, crucially, performing cool down stretches. Brent Coglan, a certified personal trainer and Perform 360 gym owner, says cool downs after workouts allow the body to recover, avoid issues such as DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) and to enhance performance in upcoming workouts. “Relaxation, stretching and massage help us feel better,” he says. “This is important as it can influence our ability to perceive and tolerate pain, increase enjoyment of exercise and can be used to help us de-stress and have higher quality sleep.”
Massage is one of the most effective ways to stave off DOMS and aid in faster post-workout recovery. “There are plenty of options when it comes to massage tools you can use at home; it’s just a question of deciding which approach works best for you,” says Tania Grillinzoni, The Good Guys Buyer - Portable Appliances.
Massage gun: Every workout needs a recovery buddy. The G4 Theragun Pro Massage Gun by Therabody is one of the most powerful percussive therapy devices with top-of-the line deep muscle treatment. Therabody have released the Theragun Elite that is elegant, lightweight and can fully personalize to your body’s needs. Need a recovery helper whilst on the go? The Theragun Mini is your pocket-sized partner, giving you quality deep muscle treatment no matter where you are.
Handheld massager: These are great for targeted pain relief for sore, tense muscles. Try the Beurer Mini Massager that features three illuminating massage heads that are perfect for at home or on-the-go!
Massage chair: Continue the post-workout recovery in your home office or living room with the Beurer Shiatsu Massage Seat Cover. This all-over tension reliever goes to work on shoulders, back and legs and uses in-seat heating and two rotating Shiatsu neck massage fingers to knead out aches and pains.
Foot massager: The Beurer Air Compression and Shiatsu Foot Massager is the perfect way to treat sore feet after a long cardio session and, bonus, it also compresses the feet to boost circulation.

You’ve nailed the massage equipment, and now it’s time to add these other essentials to your gym recovery equipment:
Sleep Aid Device: Sleep quality before and after exercising is important to maintain a balanced lifestyle. With the Morphee Relaxation And Sleep Aid Device, you can choose from 8 relaxing sleep techniques, 8 different sessions for 8 or 20 minutes to feel relaxed and renewed after an intense workout.
Smart Speaker: Wind down with relaxing tracks courtesy of the Amazon Echo Dot Smart Speaker with Alexa. It features a sleek design and improves audio for vibrant sound anywhere in the room.
Essential Oil Diffuser: To help ease you into deeper relaxation and recovery, pop some Ellia Essential Oil Lavender in the Ellia Harmony Cordless Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser - White and get into the zone.
Heating Pad: The XL Multipurpose Heating Pad features 5 heat settings to help relieve pain in the shoulders, back, neck, lumbar and arms using only one user friendly device to ease pain as well as help you fee relaxed.
Now that you’ve got your workout recovery station sorted, let’s take stock of the home gym itself. For a low impact cardio workout, an elliptical is your go-to. Most models, including the BH Fitness NLS12 Program Elliptical, let you set up to your natural stride for an ergonomic workout. Cycling is also low-impact, high calorie burning and the BH Fitness Artic Program Bike is perfect for anyone who likes to change up their workout with its nine-plus programs and 24 intensity levels. For the gym junkies, the BH Fitness S1RW Program Rower boasts a Professional Racing program and 16 intensity levels.
