Disclaimer: I think it’s important to mention that I am currently in a partnership with Endy, and was given the products in this review at no cost; however, all of the opinions in this review are 100% honest and my own.
Hey there, fit fam!
As a fitness professional, many of you know how big a fan I am of sleep. Studies show that, aside from nutrition, getting enough quality sleep is actually the most important factor in achieving any health and fitness goal.
I’m sure we’ve all been there - the nights we’ve completely underslept, spent hours tossing and turning, or just couldn’t get comfortable enough to feel well-rested the next morning. The whole day, we’re usually feeling moody, have low-energy or are just running through a “brain fog”. Essentially, when we don’t sleep well, our brain’s ability to focus and process information suffers, our workouts and activity level suffer, and our body and hormones don’t function the way they should.
Endy is a Canadian company with a mission to design an amazingly comfortable mattress to provide Canadians with high-quality sleep. When I had contacted them back in October, they were thrilled to hear how excited I was to share my experiences with their mattress and sleep products, specifically with regards to how it’s helped me to improve my quality of sleep.
Since they offer every first-time Endy mattress owner a 100 Nights Risk-Free Trial (which means, if you don’t absolutely love it, they’ll pick it up and provide a full refund!), I thought it would be fun to officially weigh in on my thoughts on my experience after 100 nights of sleeping on my Endy mattress.
The delivery of my Endy mattress, pillows and sheets was definitely one of the coolest experiences. Not only was shipping completely FREE, but everything came in boxes that were a fraction of the size. This made it super easy (although still pretty difficult for just one person!) to bring everything up three flights of narrow stairs in my little old 1940’s apartment. Plus, the actual unboxing process was a breeze! Win!!
Before even opening my Endy mattress, I think it’s important to let you know what mattress I was currently working with. My previous mattress had been the same one I was using all through university. It was super soft, but it was definitely worn and losing its shape in the middle. So, my first night sleeping on the Endy mattress was nothing short of a transformative experience.
The Endy mattress is much firmer than I was used to, but it was still pretty soft and allowed you to “sink in” with absolutely no dips or pressure points. I was also able to sleep soundly next to my partner, Kyle, without feeling him tossing or turning. (And, vice versa!)
I was initially worried that the Endy mattress would wear down a lot faster, but after over 100 nights, the mattress is just as firm and comfortable as it was when I first tried it out. And, I’ve had 100+ nights of sound sleeps ever since!
In my opinion, the Endy pillows are by far the most underrated product in the Endy family. As much as I love the mattress, I think I love the Endy pillows even more!
The way Endy designed these pillows to be so comfortable and customizable is just genius. Maybe it’s because I have different pillow size preferences than my partner, so having a pillow that you can manually adjust based on your sleeping habits and preferences was extremely helpful to ensure that we were BOTH happy with the size and firmness that worked best for us.
The Endy pillow is filled with bamboo charcoal memory foam pieces. It also comes with a separate bag that you can put your extra foam in - in case you want to remove any and store the extra bits elsewhere. (But, of course, I didn’t need it - because I love a big, fluffy, dense pillow!)
Needless to say, the pillows are probably the comfiest pillows I’ve ever slept on. They’re better than hotel pillows (you know the ones!), and definitely make me miss my bed in the mornings.
The accessories I received with my mattress included an Endy sheet set (which included a fitted sheet and flat sheet, plus two pillowcases). Before these, I was using a King size dark green sheet set that was literally donated by my parents when Kyle & I moved into our new place.
It didn’t even fit our bed, because our mattress is a Queen.
To say these accessories were an upgrade is an understatement!! They’re crisp white and super comfy. I can’t imagine how I went so long without a good fitting sheet set. It truly makes all the difference and is totally worth the investment!
Finally, as a fitness professional who’s all about sustainability, I was really impressed with Endy’s social mission.
Not only do they make the manufacturing and shipping process as sustainable as possible, but if after the 100 Night Trial you decide that the Endy mattress isn’t the right fit for you, Endy will actually donate your mattress to Canadians in need. (Which I love!!) Endy works with local charities across the country to pick up and donate gently used mattresses to families in need. That way, even though the Endy mattress might not have made it into your home, it’ll be recycled and given a new home to someone who may need it more. (Yay for sustainability!)
