Men's Journal Names Saatva Best Mattress for Athletes

/ December 28, 2018

Sleep is a critical part of any successful exercise program—it's when your muscles rest and recover after you've put them through the wringer.

The right mattress can go a long way toward reducing next-day soreness and ensuring that you get the most from your time in the gym or on the playing field. That's why we're pleased to report that Men's Journal this week named Saatva one of The 8 Best Mattresses to Help Athletes Recover Faster After Workouts.

Men's Journal names Saatva one of the best mattress for athletes

"For a lot of people, getting the best sleep of your life will also require one of the best mattresses designed with athletes in mind," writes reviewer Adam Bible. He cites Saatva's coil-on-coil construction, which offers "motion damping with decent bounce," and a Euro pillow top that "sleeps cool."

Then there's Saatva's white-glove delivery, a boon even for guys strong enough to lug a boxed mattress up a flight of stairs: “This mattress comes delivered (for free) as a full mattress, sparing you a sometimes-explosive vacuum-packed opening experience."

Our flagship luxury mattress is expertly engineered with coil-on-coil construction for durability, a layer of memory foam for enhanced back support, and a cushiony Euro pillow top for extra comfort.


Why Saatva mattresses are good for runners

Runner's World also recently praised Saatva as one of the best mattresses for runners, citing its ability to ease hip pain and low-back pain thanks to lumbar zone enhancement that helps maintain proper spinal alignment throughout the night. (Since we're talking about magazine shoutouts, we should note here that O, the Oprah Magazine gave us a thumbs-up this month too.)

More sleep tips for athletes

Helping your body recover after activity goes beyond just sleeping on the right mattress. Adopting good post-workout routines—like proper stretching, avoiding certain foods too close to bedtime, and keeping hydrated—matters too.
