Get HelpMy first advice is always to work with one of our personal trainers. They are experts not only in making you look and feel great, but also in keeping you healthy. They will work with you to determine your current fitness level, lay out goals and create a plan to get you to where you want to be. Most people that find themselves injured skip this step and just jump in full steam. While I love the intensity, it is extremely important to take a measured approach.
If You Get HurtSee a doctor if you get injured. Men, see a doctor if you get hurt. Sorry to be repetitive, but I know the running joke is “real men don’t need doctors”, but it’s not funny when you’re watching your friends climb mountains while you sit in the car. Guys take a clue from the women, and be smart. If it is only a minor injury your doctor will tell you which exercises you may continue to do without causing more harm. In fact, with most injuries you can keep working on other areas of your body while you heal, but you need to know what to avoid and be prepared to start slow.
Once again, our trainers also know how to adjust your routines to compensate for any minor injuries you may have. They can work with you to determine if you are using proper form and performing your exercises correctly. I can’t state it enough, working out with an injury can be very dangerous, please let us know if you have any concerns.
