How do you use your Compex device?

I use the Compex for both pre and post workout. I find the pre warm-up activation allows me to have a far more productive workout as I'm ready to go from the start, no lazy miles while my muscles wake up.
For post workout I use all the Recovery and massage functions to flush the muscles of fatigue and accelerate my recovery which ensures I take the minimal amount of fatigue into my following session.

What is your favorite program and why?

Pre Warm-up. I find it's great both pre and post key sessions and competitions, gives me the confidence I'm ready to go and accelerates my recovery time post workout.

How has Compex helped your training?

I've not needed massage for over 2 years since I've started using Compex and also remained injury free for the first time in my career. The compex and its large variety of functions has allowed me to function at my optimum much more often.

How did you enter into the triathlon world?

I was living in LA and wanted to compete at something. I'd heard about the Oceanside 70.3 and what an amazing event it was so figured if go and give it go. I absolutely loved it, was instantly addicted, and the rest as they say is history.

When did you know you were ready to compete in IRONMAN?

I don't know if you ever know that your ready to compete in an ironman, at some point you've just got to take the plunge. Jump and the net will appear as they say.
