Built to help you spend more time running and less time injured. Every year over 70% of runners sustain a running-related injury. This running-specific recovery app will help you become part of the 30%. We use training data from Strava combined with physical therapy survey data on perceived soreness to automatically generate active recovery plans that are customized to your individual needs. 

Whether you are just starting marathon training or training for your first 5k, Recover Athletics can keep you running healthy. Recover is a must-have exercise app for runners who want to increase their mileage and get faster without suffering increased injuries.

We work with top physical therapists and doctors from Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital’s Sports Medicine clinic to develop these active recovery plans and deliver them through video coaching. Research shows resistance training is the best way to solve nagging problems and prevent injuries. Our recovery routines are 100% evidence-based. 

We get it, recovery is the easiest thing for a runner to skip, so we tailor motivating reminders to your running schedule to help you prioritize this critical part of your training.

Powered by best-in-class injury prevention algorithms and physical therapy content, Recover Athletics allows runners to take control of their training and seamlessly incorporate the recovery needed to stay injury-free.

Recovery Athletics Running App is a way overdue evidence-based, user-friendly tool for runners.

Recover Athletics Running app is a way overdue evidence-based tool for runners. As a lifetime serious recreational runner and now triathlete, I have been waiting for something like this for years. The arduous task of obtaining a primary doc referral, scheduling and attending an initial PT appointment only to be handed a wordy description of what exercises/stretches my latest injury requires (sometimes with stick figure diagrams if I’m fortunate), I often feel like the experience of transferring meaningful recovery information could be more user-friendly. When I stumbled upon the Recovery Athletics Running app with the short, clear, and sharp videos specific to the injury I was ecstatic. This app is way overdue and greatly appreciated by this runner. The fact that the exercises and stretches are evidence-based from a highly credible pool of medical and PT professionals makes it a home run.

Just what we needed!

We signed up for an annual account so that we could use family sharing. Had little trouble getting the family sharing set up, but when I reached out to the developers they got back immediately and worked with us until everything was working correctly. We have high school runners heading off to college to run and a couple of parents who run to stay healthy and this app has been great for all of us! Love that you can pick out right where the pain is and get exercise to strengthen that area. We have had so much success with this app. Try it out, use if consistently for a few weeks, and I bet you will notice a difference too!

All Levels of Runners Need This

I’ve always been skeptical about running apps; especially workout/stretching because they never actually target the needs of runners. But this does just that by targeting the needs of runners! Great app and easy to use, I highly recommend adding this to your arsenal if you’re serious about improving your overall fitness and avoiding injuries.

One recommendation for the developers: if someone doesn’t know the area they are having a problem with, can a “click here” feature be added and then asks more details about specific area? Then from there a formula picks out the area that’s affected

Developer Response ,

Hi there,
Thanks so much for leaving us a review and for offering this feature idea too! The next iteration of our body map (the screen that allows runners to select for different prehab programs) will include a component along the lines that you describe. If you're interested in offering further feedback or learning more about what we're building, please reach out any time at team@recoverathletics.com! We respond to every email that comes through to us.
