Time to Take Care of That Spine.

Inversion is available to all Right-Fit clients.

Inversion therapy may be best known as a method to relieve back pain, however it is also a successful method to reverse other negative effects that gravity has on the body.Over time, gravity can contribute to problems with circulation, height loss, prolapsed organs and general body functions.

Inversion can also be used as a proactive approach to help maintain overall health. Hanging upside down can help to stretch and relax muscles, reduce stress and tension, and provide healthy movement for ligaments.

Doing inversion helps with the following:

- Relieve Back Pain
- Provide Care for the Discs
- Relieve Stress and Muscle Tension
- Improve Circulation and Accelerates the Cleansing of Blood and Lymph Fluids
- Reduce the Effects of Aging Caused by the Force of Gravity
- Enables the Body to Stretch and Align Itself
- Can Help with Workout Recovery
- Strengthen Ligaments

Right Fitters, this Memorial Day weekend I encourage all of you to relax and loosen up those tight muscles. This is a good time for you to not overdo it and allow your body to recover. Your body needs to recover from any stress we have built up.

High levels of stress can cause: unpredictable behavior, moodiness, emotional and physical problems, below is a list of ways helpful in mitigating the effects of stress and allowing your body to relax and recover:

• Stretch (Exercise)
• Talk to people
• Get plenty of rest (7-9 hours)
• Breathe deeply
• Eat well balanced and regular meals

Foam rollers help stiff muscles relax and break down scar tissue, and improves range of motion. Flexibility and mobility become increasingly important to good health after age 30 when joints begin to lose some motion and lubrication.

Any questions about foam rollers please see or email any Right Fit Training Specialist. Locations in both Willowbrook and LaGrange.

GRAVITY RULES! Our bodies weren't designed for current technology (modern) lifestyle

Reverse Wall Slide

Are you sitting, texting, etc. longer than 30 minutes? If YES create your Posture Action Plan (P.A.P.) today.

Proper posture not only makes us look better, but enables the body to function more efficiently, develop properly and stay stronger in our later years.

People that SIT for long periods of time with knees in a flexed position are going to have tight hamstrings and tight hip flexors. How do I prevent this you ask?

P.A.P. - Alarm rings (no excuse) STOP, take a deep breath inhale, exhale & “Stand Up”
Re- check Standing Posture – head straight, chin parallel to floor, shoulders & hips level, knees and feet forward. When sitting back down, recheck Sit Posture -spine and head are erect and the 3 natural curves are maintained in chair.
• Next time Alarm rings Stand Up and try the attached Reverse Wall Slide
