Returning to Activity After Being Inactive From Pain, Injury or Recovery

Watching the Wimbledon Championships this time of year can ignite a desire in many of us to get out there and move…The electrifying rallies, the strategic serves and volleys can be addicting to watch, but being a part of the action is even more satisfying!

Busy Lives Can Sideline Athletic Activities

But for active people, life's busy pace can sometimes sideline athletic desires. Old injuries from high school or college sports can linger, fitness levels decrease, and before you know it, that evening or weekend tennis match feels like a distant memory…

The Longer the Break, The Harder Returning to Activity Can Be

We've all been there–that initial struggle to get back into the swing of things after a break from activity. The longer the break, the harder it can be to find the spark to get moving again. Or maybe past aches and pains can make us hesitant to push ourselves, leaving us further and further away from the game.

It’s time to Break Through the barriers and this post, motivated by the excitement of Wimbledon, can be the catalyst to give you the confidence you can do it!
