Q: What is unique about the ReST Bed®?
The ReST Bed® is the best mattress for athletes who value recovery.The ReST Bed® allows me to customize support for any part of my body that needs it. With my Kona training each night I adjust the firmness as needed. Right now I really am focusing on my hips and legs to really allow my power center to recover to its fullest.
Q: How did you learn about the ReST Bed®?
I was introduced to ReST® through Siri Lindley.
Q: What role does the ReST Bed® play in your training regimen?
In the weeks leading up to the World Championship in Kona, my preparation focused very heavily on recovery through better sleep. As part of this, Tim O’Donnell and I slept on a ReST Bed®.
Q: Did you sleep on your ReST Bed® in Kona?
That’s the only downside – once I left for Kona, I didn’t have the ReST Bed® there! I wish I could have taken it with me!
