I have used the Sport Elite for a while now and recently had great success after placing 3rd in a half marathon and then 5th at a triathlon the next day. I used the active recovery on my quads right after the event and then the recovery on my calfs at home later in the day. Felt great the next day and had no problems pushing hard again.
Using the strength routine, my legs get much more sore than using traditional weights. 30 minutes of quads on this thing is awesome. I have had days where it is hard to walk after a compex strength workout... all while on a break at work! (Posted on 11/3/12)
Being an endurance athlete much of my life, I have always searched for the best methods of recovery. The Compex Muscle Stimulator is easily the simplest and most effective way to recover from a hard workout.
At first glance, I was a bit skeptical until of course I brought it in to my physical therapist in order to test the machine's effectiveness and range in strength. He too was pleasantly surprised at how substantial a range this portable stimulator had. It rivals that of the desktop stem units one comes across in sports medicine facilities, and at a fraction of the size.
The great thing about this Compex stimulator is that you don't have to be a major athlete to get great use of it. Simply attaching this to one's back is a great way to relieve stress from a long day at the office.
It's easy to use, aesthetically pleasing to the eye - at least in comparison to most stem units - and incredibly portable.
Good on ya, Compex for producing such a great and versatile stimulator! (Posted on 12/5/10)
I started using the Compex Sport Elite Stimulator 2 weeks ago in the middle of my training build up for Kona. Since I've started using Compex, my legs recover quicker from hard workouts and I can train harder knowing that I'll bounce back quicker for the next day's workouts. The Compex Elite is super user friendly, and it's compact so I can take it with me when I travel to training camps and races. Thank you Compex! (Posted on 9/19/10)
I was introduced to Compex Muscle Stimlators last year at Vineman 70.3 and was hooked. I use it every day. I truly believe it played a huge role in my success last year at Kona. I was able to train harder because I was recovered better. I have shared my recovery secret with many friends in Sacramento area and they have all become believers. (Posted on 6/10/10)
You know, I have been an endurance athlete since the late 80's, as I have aged I have found the need to take Ibuprofen fairly regularly for both injury prevention, injury treatment (more so I could train through the injury) as well as keeping swelling etc. down. I have been known to do the standard sort of treatments like 2400 mg a day for 2 weeks etc.
Since I started Ultra Running I have had an increased need to take Ibuprofen for the amount of downhill running I do. For instance, I will run 40 miles in the Sierra's on Saturday, fairly fast and pound down canyons well over 2000' deep and several miles. This is what kills many people at Western States, the downhills.
Ibuprofen, as I am sure you know actually extends the healing process (prevents healing) and causes dehydration.
So, I am STOKED about this machine. I ran 17 miles yesterday on trails in 2 hours and 4 mintues. Did 5 of those miles at tempo (6 minute per mile pace). After the run I hooked myself up and did the 26 minutes of Compex Active Recovery at about a 100 level.
Today, no ibuprofen, ran 10.5 and had absolutely no pain. Did the warmup mode on the Compex, ran 10.5 and did active recovery. I must say, this is amazing. It is very possible that I will run the season without any NSAIDS........ And, place very well at States.

The improvements made compared to the older units are HUGE! Not only do you still get the most amazing programs in the world of EMS, but now I have more programs and user friendly features that I love.
The snap pads are so easy to use! They make it much easier to attach the leads when you are working glutes and hamstrings in particular
The progress bars are very useful. You can tell exactly how long your contractions and rest are going to last which is very handy.
Being back lit is AWESOME! Great idea.
Being able to select which intensity buttons control increases and decreases is great. Most times I select ALL so I only need to push 1 button to increase intensity on all channels.
I LOVE the massage feature! This equates to the best massage I've ever had and I can do it anytime and anywhere. Talk about money savings! As a cyclist I pay for massages frequently when I'm racing. Saving this money will pay for the unit easily in the first year for me.
Charging is the only thing that is a bit less intuitive. You need to take all the cables out and then a guard pin is pushed aside to insert the charger.
Overall the improvements are very useful and much appreciated.
Thanks Compex!! (Posted on 2/2/10)
I ran 2 very hard workouts in the span of 12 hours and afterwards I could barely walk. After one 24-minute session of Active Recovery with the Compex Sport Elite my legs were like brand new. Woke up the next morning and I ran totally fresh. This product ROCKS! (Posted on 12/2/09)
Your electrodes work miracles! No tightness or soreness at all, and I was in pain walking around yesterday. (Posted on 10/19/09)
