Pillars to successful athletic performance are fairly simple, right? Train hard. Fuel your body with the best food available. And get enough sleep to restore and rebuild. We all know how important sleep is but the fact remains that 40% of Americans get less than the suggestion 8 solid hours per night. Many getting less than 7 hours. That isn’t taking into consideration the quality of sleep either. Do you remember how old your mattress is? The average life of a mattress is 7-10 years. Sadly, if you’re like me… that timeframe has slipped through the cracks of a busy life.
I recently had the opportunity to test out the new REM-Fit 300 with the Motivate Collection system, which tracks all of your sleeping data. Now I will say that this product arrives in a different manner than your typical, old school mattress…
Let me digress a bit and start at the beginning… The company set up delivery for me and I assumed I needed to be home for the delivery crew to hoist the large mattress to the second floor of my house to the targeted bedroom. I was wrong… welcome to 2016 Robin! I was home in the kitchen working on some recipe jobs and my father had walked in informing me that there was a box on the porch. I get a lot of packages from companies during the week so this wasn’t unusual. I asked him to bring it in and leave it in the foyer. A few hours later I walked in an was shocked. The mattress was delivered and sitting in my foyer. In a box. A medium sized box. Wait, what? How did this mattress fit into this box?
When my husband got home, he easily took it upstairs to the bedroom where it was going. We did need to buy a platform bed frame. He opened it up and removed it from the plastic outer casing and voila the bed immediately started to expand to a normal, lovely mattress. Seriously it happened so quickly I missed taking a picture.
The bed easily set up in the wood-based platform bed frame for support (what we used). And then, the added bonus was a tracking device that a person doesn’t need to wear. The REM-Fit motivate collection tool simply lays on the mattress to track data under your fitted sheet. See pics below:
Goes under the fitted sheet and lays nicely.
The top cover anchor the recording device magnetically through the sheet.
The continue to make the bed as you normally do.
So the bed is ready and all you need to do is download the REM-Fit Motivate app to you phone. Then head to bed for a restful night sleep on the most wonderfully comfortable foam mattress.
I wanted to share some of the sleep data that this app/tracker collects (2 separate nights):
