bluerub: Natural body care for all athletes


Recovery has proven its worth in the world of training and athletes are taking it to heart. Most coaches recommend at least one day of rest each week and the incorporation of a recovery routine.

As I began looking at products available to athletes today, I was quickly overwhelmed with the various lines of creams, gels, and other products you can find online. It can be hard to find products that offer a natural solution to common issues faced by athletes including muscle soreness, fatigue, and chafing.

Enter Colorado-based company, bluerub. This line of products is all natural, affordable, and works! The products offered include anti-chafing, muscle relief, and even a CBD line. The company caters to athletes of all venture from swimmers to equestrians to runners to endurance junkies.

I had the opportunity to try out the products this past weekend when I challenged myself with back to back race days. I applied CHAFE under my sports bra prior to my Saturday marathon and was pleasantly surprised when my post-run shower didn’t burn!

“Protect your skin from rough, painful chapping and chafing. You’ll run longer, train harder, and recover faster with CHAFE – you go-to-natural anti-chafe solution. CHAFE is designed for sensitive skin and washes clean with soap and water.”

Later that evening I applied the muscle rub and was most impressed with the smell. It’s not the overpowering scent of some of the other products you can find on the market. It’s a soft, pleasant smell, but delivers an effective kick to muscles.

“Overworked muscles are par for the course with athletes and active people. They slow recovery and reduce your performance. MUSCLE delivers warmth and cooling at the same time. The exclusive Essential Oil blend soothes and calms, tired, sore, and overworked muscles. The icy-hot sensation will ease your muscles and speed your recovery time.”

On Sunday morning, I actually applied the muscle rub to my legs prior to the race and felt that it made a huge difference in my output. I was able to push harder, even with fatigued, post-marathon, legs. It helped to ease that heavy feeling that is common after a hard effort.

I can’t recommend this product line more highly due to its effectiveness and natural ingredients for sensitive skin and allergy-prone individuals.
