With even the entry-level plug-in RecoveryAir Prime coming in at £599 – more than an Apple Watch and Theragun combined – even the truly gym-obsessed will need to think carefully about whether you’ll use them enough to justify the investment. As someone with a triathlon on the cards this summer, I can see how valuable they might become when my training schedule picks up and I’ll need to keep recovery times at a minimum.
Even for me, though, the £1,129 RecoveryAir Pros ability to make pressure adjustments to individual chambers feels a bit much. Especially for someone zipping them up after a gym session that's largely consisted of a few heavy sets followed by minutes of Insta-scrolling. For that reason, the mid-range price point of £779 for the wireless JetBoots, is probably the sweet spot for those who fall short of Olympian status.
As it turns out, you really can put a price on skipping your stretches and recovering on the sofa instead. I’m almost entirely sure Great British Menu is worth it.
