A missing link in the world of youth, high school, and even some collegiate athletics, as well as in Fitness Training. The body works extremely hard to train, practice, and play! Muscles and joints tighten! Toxins build up in the blood! The Nervous System fatigues! A focus needs to be placed on allowing the body to recover and regenerate afterward in order to allow it to prepare for the stress of the next performance or training session.
AthletEdge incorporates a variety of Recovery Strategies into your training!
What you put into your body before, during, and after practice, training, or a game plays a huge role in how your body performs and recovers. Proper nutrition can even help your body heal after injury.
A challenging piece for many, especially high level business people and involved high school athletes, Sleep is your prime time for recovery, growth, and rejuvenation both physically and mentally.
Massage helps to move the toxins created by a challenging training session, practice, or game through the body so that you can get rid of them quicker. Massage Therapy also relaxes sore, tight muscles.
Muscles tighten up when used. They cross over joints. When muscles are tight, joints cannot move as easily. That can lead to aches, pains, wear-and-tear, and decreased range-of-motion. Stretching correctly can assist with this. Foam Rolling may not feel great, but it can also help.
Ice baths, cold whirlpools, cryotherapy tanks all help to relieve muscular and joint aches and pains and the 'heaviness' you may feel in the legs following training. COMING SOON!
Taking a break, doing another activity, hanging with family and friends, even talking to a professional can all help your mind take time off from the stress of training and playing.
These sessions are solely for Recovery and Relaxation and Incorporate Stretching, Foam Rolling, and Nutritional Presentations, and on occasion, Yoga and Meditation!
