Healthy Feet Can Make You Skinny

May 28, 2010

I know foot care isn’t in the news everyday. But did you know that foot care can make you skinnier, look great, feel incredible, and increase your flexibility.

By rolling out your feet on a tennis ball like I have demonstrated in the video you are less likely to experience very painful plantar faciaitis. If you have had it before you know what I am talking about. You don’t want to walk, workout, run, or move your foot at all. So if you can’t move your feet you won’t be able to burn off all those calories.

I hope you enjoy the post and the video. Leave a comment if you like it or don’t like it.

Foam Roll Warm Up and/or Active Recovery

December 21, 2009

The foam roll is a great tool to help you warm up and/or recover more quickly from a great workout.  I recommend my clients and athletes roll for at least 5 minutes before each workout.

On days off it is a good thing add aerobic activity (jogging, swimming, biking etc), foam rolling and stretching.  Aerobic activity, foam rolling, and stretching help to flush the lymphatic system that can get bogged down from the stress imposed on the body during activity.  To help the body to function efficiently I highly recommend foam rolling.
