It’s easy to feel helpless after experiencing pain or injury. It’s hard to feel like an athlete once you’re no longer on the team. We get that. We’ve been through it. And we see others go through it daily. Life changes, our bodies change, and our goals change. It’s now more about what you can do to feel better. It’s about continuing to do the things you love like playing with your kids, or going on a hike. We’re here to remind you that you’re not broken.
You’re still an athlete. You’re just playing a different sport now. Train for it.
Many people have developed a fear of exercise. Sometimes this comes from past coaches who punished us with exercise. Sometimes it comes from an overwhelming amount of confusing information. Sometimes it’s because we were taught more was better. Sometimes it’s because we were made to believe that one size fits all. Advise that encourages us to try the workout of the day (even if our body wasn’t ready yet). Sometimes we just need to take our time and listen to our bodies. Sometimes all we need is a helping hand. Someone to treat you like the individual that you are.
We don’t have to fear exercise. Exercise is way too valuable for our physical, mental, and long-term health.
Take the challenge to feel comfortable in your body again.
