So how is that done?
Rule number one is to stretch, warm-up, train, cool down and stretch again.
And I am always checking my clients during their sessions to see if I need to perform more stretches during the session, and they usually do.
Those stretches are performed with compassion, with controlled breathing exercises and following a particular pace.
I am horrified when I see exercise group classes with dozens of people performing exercises that are irrelevant to their bodies.
Then those classes are performed with high weights, ultra-high intensity.
This recipe creates injuries and more injuries.
I have countless stories to tell about clients that come to me injured in that cool group class.
Yes, that class was cheap for a reason.
So yes injures are to be avoided, so there are professional protocols that should be followed.
Rule number one in any of my classes is to avoid injuries.
