"I am always on the cutting edge, looking for new ways that I can better my body and the biggest advantages of firefly are that it moves blood, is great for travel, is awesome for recovery and is really easy to use."
Sebastian Kienle | 3x Ironman Champion
"I first became aware of firefly when I struggled with Achilles problems and long travel made it worse. I gave firefly a try and was really surprised about the positive effects. Now, firefly is an essential part of my travel routine as it helps me to recover quicker and I'm able to get back to training faster. "
Blake Griffin | Brooklyn Nets, 6x NBA All-Star
"I have these things called firefly. It's just basically pulse technology. So I wear those on every flight…I love it and I use it all season."

Victor Oladipo | Miami Heat, 2x NBA All-Star
"firefly has been beneficial to me. I use it all the time, post-practice. It has been great for my recovery."
Sam Kwant | CrossFit Athlete, Second Fittest Man in the World
"Firefly has really made a difference for my overall knee pain/aches. The firefly has been a game changer and is also very simple to use."
Jordan Hasay | Professional Marathon Runner
"firefly is a device that is crucial to my daily recovery and injury prevention routine. One benefit is you can wear it anywhere as you go about your daily activities. Also, I think the blood flow helped me recover more quickly. I highly recommend it for runners."
Devon Brookshire | Professional Basketball Player
"Firefly is the ultimate on the go recovery tool. As a professional athlete, the demands on my body are very high and consistent travel can be training. Firefly leaves my legs feeling fresh after flight, in between practices and after games. The portability and convenience are unmatched and I’m so thankful for Firefly’s role in helping me to perform at my best.."
David Hamilton | Head of Performance, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
"The firefly device is valuable in any sport where athletes play games and train over multiple consecutive days. Firefly helps athletes quickly recover and return to baseline which is a key determinant for success."
Dom Dwyer | Professional Soccer Player, Orlando FC
"Firefly recovery is top class. These little things have really helped me out!"
Allie Wilson | Professional Runner, Atlanta Track Club Elite
"I love Firefly because they make my legs feel so much more fresh and recovered faster than they ever have before. They are also so easy to use and allow you to go about your day while simultaneously recovering. You hardly even realize you have them on!"
Marco Nunez | Former Head Certified Athletic Trainer, Los Angeles Lakers
"Our players are seeing great results using the firefly for next day muscle recovery following training and matches. Having fresh legs allows them to up their training load and this in turn increases their fitness and performance. firefly is a great addition to our recovery protocol, which includes ice, compression and flushing massage — methods that, unlike firefly, are not as simple to deploy during travel."
Phil Gaimon | Former Pro Cyclist
"Recovery has always been paramount. It's training that makes you better and recovery that allows you to train. Being able to focus on recovery has enabled me to retain similar fitness to my pro years. Firefly is what happens when the quality and expertise of the medical industry trickles into sports. It's high-tech, well-made, and effective. I love to use it when I travel instead of bulky and uncomfortable compression products."
Henry Wynne | 1,500m Runner, Brooks Beasts Track Club
"firefly has become an important part of my recovery by making it easier to recover while going about my daily routine. One of the hardest parts of the recovery process is taking the time to actually focus on it and firefly makes that process much easier. You can wear firefly throughout the day and barely notice it’s presence. I’ve also integrated firefly into my travel routine and always have them on when I’m flying to increase blood flow and allow my legs to feel better getting off the plane."
Amanda Dowdy | AVP Beach Volleyball Professional
"The biggest significance I've noticed is during travel. I wear the firefly recovery the whole time, whether it's a 14 hour or a 3 hour flight. I highly recommend this to any of my friends…I have my mom and dad wearing them. I have my boyfriend wearing them - they really have become my go to for recovery."
Mark Gaudet | Professional Endurance/OCR Athlete, Spartan Team Racer, Army Ranger
"firefly has become the most vital component of my recovery regimen. The convenience and practicality of the devices guarantee daily recovery, regardless of my schedule. Fresher legs lead to better training, fewer injuries, and improved results."
Chaim Shalk | AVP Beach Volleyball Professional & Olympian
"Love the firefly units, they have been so great for recovery. My legs feel fresh the next day, which is so awesome. Also, my knees haven't felt this good in a long time."
Joe Huff | Head Certified Athletic Trainer, Anaheim Ducks
"I have found the firefly to be one of the simplest recovery device on the market. Used after high intensity exercise, the firefly has made a real difference to the team. The increase in blood flow reduces muscle soreness for 'next day' fresh legs, particularly when used for recovery during travel. Highly effective, the firefly device is an important addition to Anaheim Ducks' recovery protocol."
Jason Powell | Head Athletic Trainer, Los Angeles Clippers
"Firefly has done wonders for our players for consistent recovery postgame and when we travel. Great product very user friendly and players like them a lot!"
Brad Godbold | Director of Strength and Conditioning, NYU
"As a former athlete and current performance coach, I’ve used just about every recovery device out there. The firefly device is far and above my favorite. When I use it pre-workout or before a run I can tell a difference in work capacity – farther runs, additional volume on squats. If you’re a serious athlete, you need to have these in your recovery arsenal."
Falyn Fonoimoana | AVP Beach Volleyball Professional
"I discovered firefly after seeing a lot of professional athletes using the athletic recovery device and I wanted to learn more. I would completely recommend firefly . I wasn't really sure if it would work, but, after using it for two hours – there were no aches and pains. Your back feels nice and loose. It really just works for your whole entire body and not just for your legs. And that's something that I've never had before."
Warren Young | Trainer, University of Texas
"Firefly has been a great recovery tool to flush lactic acid and keep legs feeling fresh. It’s easy portability makes it convenient on the road and player compliance is preferred over recovery tights or other modalities. It’s always nice when student-athletes ask for a modality like Firefly because of it’s fantastic results."
Clive Brewer | High Performance Specialist
"I discovered early in my career working with athletes the need to fit in as much recovery on a daily basis as possible without impacting training. One of the things that I love about the firefly is that you can carry on with your normal life. You put it on and it's significantly enhancing blood flow around the body. We know it's reducing inflammation, it's increasing blood flow, and it provides all the benefits that increased blood flow and circulation bring. Performance equals fitness minus fatigue, so it's improtant that recovery isn't ignored."
Lindsey S | Entertainment Lawyer
"I do a mix of running, spinning and martial arts 6 days per week and firefly has dramatically decreased my need for rest days, PT and chiropractor visits."
Manteo Mitchell | Olympic Athlete for the 200m & 400m
"Recovering is huge for me… my legs felt refreshed after the first session with firefly. Then I had a tough workout yesterday and felt super."
Tory Grant | Pro Skateboarder
"I take a beating everyday from skateboarding…so I started to use firefly, and overnight—the next day I literally felt so good on my skateboard. It's really impacted the way I skate now."
Dave Magida | Professional Endurance/OCR Athlete, Spartan Team Racer
"I recently ran a 12 hour endurance race. The first day following the race I could barely walk, so I started wearing the firefly device for 2-3 hours a day. After taking off the fireflies, I ran 1.5 miles. The next day I ran 5 miles. By day three I was back to doing strength work and ran 6 miles relatively fast. I never imagined I could have recovered so quickly from this massive output. But here I am, training essentially as normal within 36 hours of completing the race. I am a believer in firefly!"
Michaela Breeze | Weightlifter
"firefly is a unique device which forms part of my post training recovery. The morning after a heavy session my legs feel fresher, less fatigued and ready to go for the next session."
Ritchie Nicholls | Pro Triathlete
"I use firefly on long flights to keep blood circulating which helps my legs to feel fresher when I land and after tough training sessions and races for a faster recovery."
Erik Svendsen | First Team Sports Scientist at Watford Soccer Club
"We have been incorporating the firefly devices as part of our post competition recovery strategies for a few numbers of seasons. The firefly provides us with a recovery tool that is easy to apply and wear whilst it provides our players with a tool that gives them the possibility to recovery quicker after games. For us this is considered crucial, especially in periods of congested fixtures. The simplicity of the devices offers a solution that allows players to wear them wherever they would go after a game, thus providing optimal acute recovery. We always try and provide our players with strategies that allow them to be ready to perform at an optimal level and we consider the firefly to be part of this."
Maximilian Lankheit | Head of Performance, San Jose Earthquakes
"firefly Recovery has quickly become an integral part in our recovery strategy post-game. Especially during this season’s congested fixture with a lot of games and travel it is a great tool especially in team sports. The fact that it is easy to use, non-invasive and that the positive effects can be felt immediately made firefly the go-to-recovery tool for our players after every game on the road."
Leisa F | Catalyst4Fitness.com Client
"I first used the Firefly after walking over 13 miles to watch my husband run the Chicago Marathon. My legs were incredibly sore by the end of the day. I wore the device for an hour before going to bed and woke up with no soreness. I again used the Firefly after a leg day workout followed by a Cross Training Circuit class. I used it for an hour and I felt much better in the morning. From here forward, I plan to use it after difficult leg workouts and also after a long day of gardening when I'm lifting bags of mulch, moving large rocks, and things like that. I like it because it is easy to wear and can be used while doing other activities. And most importantly, it works!"
Kevin C | Catalyst4Fitness.com Client
"Let me explain that this is not some high-priced professional athlete-only product. If you have sore legs, ankles, or feet for any reason, from exercise to everyday activity, this is not only better but also faster than any copper socks, compression socks, or heating pads. It is more affordable and so easy to use. Plus each set lasts for 30 hours. Here is my personal story. I workout regularly, taking Metabolic Explosion Training, that keeps me, at 52 years old, able to do all the things I want and enjoy doing. On this past Saturday morning, I started on a patio project that included laying 4 tons of flagstone and 1 ton of stacking stone. My legs from the knees down were killing me. They ached so much. I used the Firefly for an hour and the recovery was unbelievable."
Matt J | Competitive Amateur Athlete
I have really been happy with the product! Since we have games on Sunday, and are perpetually short on players, I haven't been able to take enough time off for it to heal. Then I heard Joe Gomes talk about the firefly Recovery device on STEM-Talk. After thinking about it a bit (and an email to you, which was helpful, so thank-you), I decided to give the firefly recovery devices a try. After just one full week of using the device, I did not notice any discomfort during yesterday's game. Amazing.
Stew A-J | Master Athlete
"I purchased 4 pairs, one pair I gave to a friend to try himself. I used one pair during my Aarhus competition 4 sessions of 4 hours and will now use the remaining two pairs over the coming weeks and subsequent competition. If it means that I am able to train that little bit harder and race that little bit faster, it’s worth it!"
Ken Nakata | USAT - Duathlete
"The firefly is sold as a device that works particularly well at improving blood flow during long periods of inactivity, such as when traveling on long-haul flights. That’s probably true but I feel so bad after long flights that I can’t say whether anything is going to make me feel great after enduring them. Nevertheless, my experience from a reasonable 3-hour flight to and from San Diego suggest that they work well at helping you recover."
Marek Rejak | Founder, HelpGetFit
"I gave firefly a run for its money. Up to now, the longest distance I had run was a half marathon, 13.1 miles (21km). I decided to run 16.5 miles (27 km) followed by 6 miles (10 km) the next day — both competitive events. I ran both events at a pace under 8 mins/mile (5 mins/km). I used firefly for 4 hours after the first event and 5 hours after second. Having run a half marathon 2 months earlier, I still felt soreness 4 days after the event. With firefly, I felt same intensity of soreness the day after both events. This means, I have sped up the recovery process by 3 days!!!"
