Denver Sports Recovery recently expanded its athletic center in Highland so more people could train like the pros.

The recovery center spent more than $150,000 to nearly double the space of the facility to 3,600 square feet, co-owner Marsha Prada said Thursday.

Since opening in 2012, Denver Sports Recovery has grown to more than 200 members at 2242 W. 29th Ave.

“We were maxed out on space and starting to be on top of each other,” Prada said. The expansion wrapped up during the beginning of the month.

Denver Sports Recovery teaches people about “active recovering.”

“People think of recovery days as sitting on the on the couch,” Prada said.

Her center works with athletes on stretching and seemingly space-age technology — like a cryosauna — that stimulates or numbs muscles and nerves.

The basic membership for the center is $89 a month. Those who reach deeper into their pockets can pay $139 to add either fascial stretch therapy, acupuncture, sports massage or an other treatment to their basic membership.

Denverites looking for a brain boost can visit NeuraPerformance in the center for custom brain-based programs that promote brain health and performance. Those who want all the benefits of an IV without the pain of going to a hospital can stop by Onus iV Hydration.
