Restore provides a variety of proactive wellness services including Whole Body Cryotherapy, which immerses the body in temperatures as low as -165 degrees for up to three minutes and may help the body to promote healing, boost mood and energy, optimize sleep and defy the signs of aging. Other services include red light therapy, mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy and IV drips.
According to its website, the business is designed to deliver a system of total balance, energy and proactive healing, allowing customers to feel their best and reach their full potential.
Tim Tebow, still a big name around these parts, has signed on to be a brand ambassador. He and his wife Demi swear by Restore's services and the positive effects they render. Tebow utilizes the high dose vitamin C drip, infared sauna and whole body cryotherapy.
"It's not just about becoming a little bit more elite in your sport," Tebow said. "It's about becoming more elite (in) whatever you're doing."
Restore's Wheat Ridge location owners Shawn and Julie Johnson are no strangers to the fitness and well-being world, having run a local Orange Theory franchise for eight years before taking on their newest venture. The couple has lived in the Golden area for about 20 years.
"We just really like the idea of doing something that helps our community," Shawn said. "We've really embraced that what we do is about more than just earning a dollar. We have a true impact on peoples' lives."
Shawn said the idea to open the Restore franchise in Wheat Ridge was something he and his wife became interested in after he benefitted form similar services when recovering from an injury he sustained in a fall.
"I had three vertebrae, two ribs and my wrist broken and I was looking for something that could help me recover better," he said. "At the time, there wasn't really anything that served this side of town. So, I actually worked with a company that brought cryotherapy to my house."
He said his recovery regimen of cryotherapy, oxygen therapy and IV drip had him feeling great within three weeks. That, plus a mandated 90-day Covid-19 shutdown of their Orange Theory location, pretty much sealed the deal. Some research followed, leading the entreprenurial couple to buy in to Restore as an expansion of their health-redlated offerings.
Shawn said the response has been good and their client base continues to grow since May's soft opening.
"We're defining an industry — a wellness industry that really hasn't existed before," he said. "Just like Orange Theory defined boutique fitness, you're going to see recovery centers (like Restore) pop up left and right in the next five years."
Shawn thinks COVID-19 forced everyone to take a hard look at their fitness and priorities and ask themselves how they could be taking a more proactive role in their health. And he thinks Restore offers the type of services he hopes will help those who've suffered from a nasty bout of COVID-19 as well.
"There's a big difference between lifespan and healthspan," he said. "Someone might live to be 90 years old. That's lifespan. But what you can do and how active you can be during those years — that's healthspan. And that's really our mission — improving healthspan."
