Creating our Recovery Zone with Hyperice
Here at Move Forward Gym, we strive to deliver fitness and wellbeing through quality equipment, programming, training, recovery and community support.
Recovery plays a huge part in our training and taking time to warm up, stretch, and recover muscles ensures balance in the body.
We were lucky enough to have worked with our friends at Hyperice to create our very own recovery zone. Our members have access to a range of Hyperice's premium wellness products that combine cutting edge design with the benefits of compression, wearable heat, vibration and massage.
"The Hypersphere is good but the Hypervolt is my new fave as you can reach loads of niggly spots with it. It’s been great helping my back injury and just any general niggles (which I have loads of)!"
- Ellen, Move Forward Gym member
Planning our space
When looking at the space we had available, we wanted to ensure that our Hyperice recovery zone was accessible, yet tucked out of the way enough to be relaxing.
We chose a corner just off the gym floor next to our member hang out area, allowing for easy warm-up pre-class, and recovery after working out.
Powerful and quiet, the Hypervolt delivers
power, performance, and variability for
anyone looking to warm up and recovery
Helps relieve muscle soreness and stiffness
Improves range of motion
Accelerates warmup and recovery
Lightweight, easy-to-use for self-myofascial release
A range of interchangeable heads helps our members target specific muscles pre and post work out.
Vyper 2.0 Roller
Increases range of motion and flexibility
Increases circulation for optimal warm-up
Reduces soreness for faster recovery
Relaxes muscles for a more comfortable roll
"I really like the foam roller, I'm used to a textured foam roller as I thought it was better even though I don't like using on my back as it hurts my spine... I tried the Vyper and I love it, the vibration option is perfect to put a bit more pressure without hurting."

Engineered to deliver maximum vibration to the body
Digital circuitry control with 3 speed settings
Compact and portable, easy for travel and carry
Our members love the Hypersphere for targeted release - for example, for relaxing calf muscles after double unders.
It's also brilliant for working on hamstrings and glutes after heavy posterior chain work such as deadlifts and squats.
Our Hypersphere Mini also targets your tightest areas to unlock the body and release trigger points.
A member favourite for the warming, relaxing sensation, the Venom is a cutting edge,
digitally connected wearable device that combines heat and vibration to warm up, loosen and relax muscles.
Normatec Pulse 2.0 works as both a high-tech warmup and a dynamic way to recover faster post-workout.
Engineered by a physician bioengineer (MD, PhD), Normatec’s patented Pulse massage pattern employs three key techniques – pulsing, distal release, and gradients – to enhance blood flow and speed recovery.
Members love the reclining anti-gravity chairs - the perfect place to relax with a protein shake at the end of class.
"The Normatec is a bit strange at first but it really does work and feels a bit like a spa session after a heavy leg workout. It s super convenient to use and efficient to, love it!"
- Claire, Move Forward Member
