Restorative & Recovery-Focused Fitness
Many of us believe that in order for a workout to be effective that it has to be challenging, intense, and make us sweat.

I'm referring to restorative exercise, which is quite often an overlooked, but quite necessary aspect of fitness that will take your fitness to the next level - especially if you're not already doing it. Not to mention, it will make your workouts and your overall fitness endeavors a whole lot more enjoyable.

Weekend Warriors: Smart Fitness Training for High-Impact Injury Prevention & Flexiblity Training
You know who you are! Weekend Warriors work hard and play hard. On the weekend you’re hiking, working out, running, and doing spartan races. Whatever it is, you’re up for the challenge. But during the week, life gets in the way. Work, family and other obligations make it impossible to go to regular group fitness classes.

Shoulders are a common source of pain and injury both in active and inactive men.
