How To Stay Injury-Free When Getting Back Into Fitness

A funny thing happens every February when it comes to people working out. No, I’m not talking about those who give up on their New Year’s resolutions. I’m referring to the insane amount of people who start developing nagging aches, pains, and eventually injuries.

It never fails. We’re super motivated and start thinking “I’m going to do cardio everyday, stop eating all carbs, and take every exercise class I possibly can!”

Sound familiar?

But come February, I start getting calls from people who tweaked a knee, or started feeling a weird knot in their hip, or have a pinch in their shoulder and are bummed because just when they felt like they were making progress, something happens to slow them down.
