We’ve all heard the saying: You spend most of your life in bed, so invest in a good one. Right? But with so many options out there, how can you know which one is right for you? Get the one that best suits your lifestyle. If you’re an athlete or active person after any edge you can get, then you should get the only mattress that will improve your workouts, speed your recovery time, and enhance your sleep. You should buy a Bear Mattress.
How can a Bear Mattress improve sleep, supercharge workouts, and speed your recovery time? Science, friends. It’s science.
How Does It Work?
Bear is more than your typical foam mattress-in-a-box. It’s specifically designed for those with an active lifestyle, whose bodies take punishment from daily runs, workouts, outdoor activities, and sports. Bear mattresses employ Celliant technology, a patented infrared system that uses fibers to convert the body’s natural energy (heat) into healing infrared light, then reflects it back up into the body’s tissue and muscles. Utilizing a blend of minerals and proprietary ingredients embedded into the fiber’s core, Celliant is a safe, FDA-approved responsive textile that’s clinically proven to benefit the human body.
Clinically proven to enhance tissue oxygen levels and improve athletic performance, Celliant harnesses your body’s natural energy to expedite recovery times. It also helps regulate body temperature and create a thermoregulating, restful sleep environment, improving sleep—and we all know the effect a good night’s sleep has on our daily demeanor. Not only does it aid in recovery times and improve the quality of your sleep, Celliant helps you wake up with more energy. It will never wash or wear out, and works right through a protector, sheets, and pajamas.
As for the foam, graphite gel and high-airflow-and open-cell-response foam increase cooling and conductivity up to 7x’s more than traditional foam. Utilizing CertiPUR-US certified foams and a water-based bonding solution, Bear mattresses are environmentally-friendly and have little to no smell.
There are two kinds of Bear mattresses: the standard Bear Mattress and the Bear Hybrid. The Mattress (Full, $615; King, $815) is made from four layers of premium graphite-gel memory foam. The Hybrid (Full $1,090 King $1,490) offers five-layer coil-and-foam construction, for better edge support. It adds a hand-tufted, quilted cover for a cloud-like sleep surface that provides both comfort and support. Both are made in the USA.
Bear also offers a complete line of bed accessories, including pillows, sheets, stands, and frames. Bought a la carte or as a bundle, they’re all 20 percent off during the Winter Sale.
Does It Really Work?
Nearly 9,000 reviewers have rated Bear mattresses—and it comes away with 4.75 out of 5 stars. That’s no joke! So you don’t need to believe the marketing hype, or even take our word for it. Try one out yourself, risk-free for 100 days. If you don’t find yourself sleeping better and recovering from workouts faster, just send it back. Shipping and returns are always free, and Bear vows to donate returned mattresses to charity whenever possible.
Best of all, Bear Mattress is having a Winter Sale. Right now take $125 off any order over $500 with code NAP125; take $200 off any purchase over $1,200 with the code NAP200. That’s about the same as a normal foam delivery mattress—one that isn’t made for athletes, and won’t help your body recover faster. So it’s kind of a no-brainer. The offer is good while supplies last.
