As a Pan Pac Masters Player and umpire I thoroughly enjoyed the ease of access and professional facilities of ice baths, massage, strapping and nutrition that Lou Ferguson provides. The RecoveryBar is fabulous value for money is well worth every cent. I highly recommend you try as I will be again for next years State Masters Championships.
Cath Foxover, Masters Hockey Player
I completed my first 50km ultra trail run this year and made full use of LFRB – I can honestly say I pulled up better after the 50km than I did after smashing out a 10km PB on the road. I wish I could access LFRB at every event I do.
Jacqueline Tol, Trail Runner
Lou has an incredible passion for helping athletes. She possesses great skill in many facets of this field and has a lovely, friendly manner. Lou has guided me with my own health and fitness goals in nutrition, mobility exercises, trigger pointed sore spots and treated me with the best massages ever. Lou and her team provide a rare and diverse arrangement of health and fitness services and I cannot recommend it enough.

Thank you Lou for all the support you have given me throughout the 2015 / 2016 Ironman season. This is the first time I have had a person set up my recovery program and didn’t it pay off!!! Your professionalism and enthusiasm towards my sport and getting the best out of my performances was second to none.

Thank you Lou!

“No Oztag tournament would be the same now without the LouFerguson RecoveryBar”

A couple of years ago I was approached by Lou Ferguson regarding the RecoveryBar and introducing it to our Oztag tournaments.  I knew the culture of Oztag players and told Lou it may take a while for them to accept it.  Six tournaments on and the LouFerguson RecoveryBar is part of the Oztag fabric for all NSW and Australian Tournaments.  Players have raved about the difference it has made to their personal performance in a heavy schedule of Oztag over the weekend.

LouFerguson RecoveryBar is definitely a vital part of my performance and recovery as an athlete at an event. I have used LFRB 3 times now and between ice baths, massage and taping it has most definitely assisted in caring for my body. Recently competing on the Gold Coast at Pan Pacs, which was a 3 day event, I was so pleased to see LFRB operating there and without hesitation purchased a 3 day pass. All her staff are amazing, friendly and great at releasing my muscles.
Lou Richards Coach at Crossfit Moorabbin and competitive Crossfitter
We had our Moorabbin Megabowl in August this year with over 110 athletes competing. We arranged to have LFRB at our event as it is a 2 day event and we as athletes know the importance of caring for the body and having a place to chill in between events. The evidence on flushing muscles with massage or using ice baths is there, and we are hoping more and more athletes begin to care for their bodies to prevent injury and increase performance and speed up recovery.
CrossFit Moorabbin – Kyle Frankenfeld, Coach and Regionals Athlete
The demand on the body to perform at its peak during any Crossfit competition is extremely high. During our annual Inhouse Throwdown, our members were fortunate to have available the services of Lou Ferguson and the LouFerguson RecoveryBar. Not only did it give them a better preparation for the competition, it also ensured quicker recovery and allowed them to maintain peak performance throughout the day. The LouFerguson RecoveryBar is a must at any Crossfit event.
Mark Edis, head coach Crossfit Victus
We had Lou fly over to Perth with her RecoveryBar team for the 2014 Primal Throwdown. The service she provided for the athletes was amazing, keeping them at their very best for the entire 3 days of competition, which in turn helped keep the level of competition at its highest all weekend. We received 100% positive feedback from the athletes that purchased RecoveryBar passes, as they got the attention they needed whenever they needed and also felt that Lou and her team went above and beyond to make sure their bodies were ready for whatever was put in front of them. The RecoveryBar area was continuously full of athletes soaking in ice baths, getting massages and strapping or just topping up on the required nutrition. I look forward to working with Lou and her RecoveryBar team at our future events.
Ryan Henderson, Primal Throwdown event organiser
The RecoveryBar is an innovative method of looking after athletes. Athletes can utilize the services provided to ensure that they maximise their chances of performing at their best throughout the event. Rocktape likes to position itself with other quality products and services, and we know that Lou and her team use Rocktape effectively to ensure that athletes can go stronger, longer.

Lou and her team travel all over Australia to bring the RecoveryBar to all types of athletes and we always hear rave reviews from her happy customers!
Tina Barton, Blue Dinosaur Paleo Bars
Having Lou Ferguson along with her incredible team equipped with food, ice baths and massage made our event more professional and elite. As our event was very physically challenging and quite taxing on the body it was a great addition to have Lou’s recovery team supporting our athletes. Allowing them to be able to perform to the best of their ability. We look forward to working together in the future to create top events.
