Chris and Alexa Knierim

Posted by Meagan Kay on

As professional athletes, we have learned throughout the course of our career together that sleep is our bodies number one way to recover. It is vital that we experience a full night's rest, each night, to train efficiently the next day. The comfort of our mattress directly impacts our quality of sleep. As we head into the next season, it is crucial that we prioritize our sleeping conditions and mattress quality.

Alexa and Chris Knierim are 2018 Olympic Bronze Medalist in Pairs Figure Skating.

Just 8 months after they teamed up in April 2012, Alexa and Chris made a name for themselves by winning Coupe de Nice in France and continued their successful season by winning the silver medal at the 2013 U.S. Championships.

In January 2015, they won their first U.S. title, setting new U.S. record scores in both the short program and the free skate. They also became the first American pair team to perform a quadruple twist in competition.

From 2015 to 2016 they won a Grand Prix medal, a silver medal at the 2016 U.S. Championships, and another silver medal at the Four Continents Championships.

In June 2016, Alexa and Chris were married in Colorado Springs. Despite it being the happiest time of their lives, it became one of the most challenging times for the newly married couple, as Alexa was battling a serious gastrointestinal condition. Despite their challenges, the pair continued to battle and in 2018 they went onto to win their second National Championship and an Olympic Bronze Medal at the 2018 Olympic Games in PyeongChang.
