Can you tell us a little about what Level Up Café and Recovery is?

Level Up is a unique take on a Coffee/Smoothie Shop that offers leg compression services to help you recovery. When you walk in the door you will be welcomed with an upbeat atmosphere, that offers fresh and healthy options. Our baristas also come with an abundant amount of knowledge when it comes to where our coffee is sourced from, to all the different supplement options we have for our smoothies. It is definitely something you will want to experience.

What are the benefits of leg compressions, and can anyone use them?

Just a few of the benefits are:

  • Reduces inflammation and water accumulation
  • Improved and enhanced circulation
  • Accelerated recovery, so you can feel rejuvenated and ready for the next workout
  • Helps prevent and eliminate first-stage varicose veins
  • Lactic acid and lymphatic flushing, thus removing toxins

And to answer your question, leg compressions are great for everyone!

What made you decide to open up a Coffee and Smoothie Shop?

Shawn and I (Victoria) always wanted to incorporate protein shakes and smoothies into our current business, Strive 4 Fitness, but never took the leap. When the opportunity presented itself to open up a coffee/smoothie shop right next door to our current business in La Grange Park, we jumped at the opportunity. There are currently no small business coffee shops in La Grange Park nor is there a healthy option for Smoothies and Protein Shakes. We knew we needed to make our next dream a reality and we are eager to share our knowledge and passion with everyone.
