If you’re reading this, we assume you like to work out. Maybe you even track your nutrition, meal prep on weekends, and make time for foam rolling, too. But how well do you sleep?
While it’s easy to focus on what goes on in the gym, perhaps the most neglected facet of fitness takes place between the sheets. Catching adequate zzz’s is your best opportunity to recover from your workouts, repair muscle tissue and, believe it or not, make gains. Get a good night’s sleep, and studies show you’ll also improve your reaction time, muscle memory and motor skills (translation: ready to bring your A-game).
Recognizing athletes’ specific recovery needs, Palma Sleep has hit the lab to develop a mattress that’ll put in the work when it matters most.
Athletes Seek Out the Best Mattress for Sleep Recovery
Society is realizing how critical a good night’s rest is for one’s overall health and well-being. Especially in the fitness community, athletes are now more than ever focusing on optimal recovery through better sleep. What makes a mattress ideal for an athlete? What is the best mattress for athletes? What needs to happen to an athlete’s body while they sleep for their muscles to heal faster? The answer is simple: it’s all about blood flow. The better your circulation, the faster oxygen in your blood stream flows through your muscles, which is key to recovery.
We’ve seen more interest among athletes looking for a bed that will help them get a better night’s sleep. It’s unsurprising that many companies out there are jumping on the bandwagon and claiming that their product is the best option for athletes. There is no shortage of gimmicks and novelties on the market that fly by night mattress companies are using to try and prove that their product is number 1. That is all well and good, but here is the problem: how can these companies possibly know what each individual athlete needs in a mattress if they’re selling a one size fits all mattress? THIS is what separates Palma Sleep from competitors because we deliver to your door and set up and customize your mattress specifically for YOU.
What makes our claim for the best bed for athletes unique?
By taking away the pressure points on your body and keeping proper postural alignment during the night, this will ensure you maximize your circulation, thus maximizing recovery through sleep. And our bed offers athletes the ability to custom fit their bed to their unique shape and needs based on their individual training. We may not know what sport you play, but we know when you roll to your side and we can reduce pressure in your shoulder so your arm doesn’t fall asleep.
While some brands of running shoes are better than others, there is no single brand or shoe out there that will fully cater to each and every runners’ needs; thus, there is no perfect running shoe, but there is your perfect running shoe. So, is there one perfect bed with one feel that is perfect for everyone? Of course, not. We are all uniquely shaped. And athletes have bodies that are constantly in a state of change. Palma Sleep is not a one size fits all bed. It is a dynamic sleep surface that can use up to four Organic layers of natural latex designed for custom fit to whomever is lying down.
