Hey workout warrior! #trainingforlife comes with its rewards… but it can also bring on soreness and inflammation afterward. Stretching pre-and post-workout is a crucial step in preventing DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness).
That said, improper stretching or not stretching at all can can elongate your recovery time and potentially prevent you from rebounding and sticking to your workout routine. Just as the best results from exercise come from repetition and frequency, so come the best results from stretching and proper recovery.
Add staying hydrated, using ice when needed, and peppering in regular massage therapy and you’re sure to keep your workouts on track. If you’re not sure which stretches will maximize your time and benefit your routine, don’t take chances and risk injury, find a massage therapist in your club and ask for help!
Not that you need it, but here’s a little incentive to get a massage this month… for a limited time, get two 90-minute massages for only $219 (reg. $250). Plus, buy this package, and get a 60-minute facial for just $59. Your winter skin will thank you!
*Offer expires on March 31, 2017. Both massages must be used by July 31, 2017. No two discounts apply. Offer not valid at FFC Park Ridge.
