Foam rollers were Physical Therapy tools for balance and other forms of rehabilitation before they became self-therapy tools. Look at any fitness equipment catalogue or training centre, foam rollers are placed near open spaces like any other tool. Used correctly, they can help with recovery after heavy lifting or stretching stubborn muscles. Learn the ins and outs of Foam Rolling and make it an addition to any stretching routine or class.

 One must remember that there is more to fitness than just pure strength – flexibility and foam rolling matter too.  Essentially, think of flexibility as an umbrella covering a range of factors that may affect the range of motion around a joint. If you have ever had tightness in the muscles when trying to accomplish simple tasks or soreness in the joints for no reason at all, it could be from a lack of flexibility and mobility! We will show you a w which you will be able to incorporate in your classes and ensure they are fun and always fully booked!

This course covers the essential principles necessary for all levels of flexibility, stretching, performance enhancement, and injury prevention. Increase athletic performance, prevent lower back injury and help clients move more efficiently in their everyday lives through myofascial release.
