#2 The Big Chill – cryotherapy is continuing to gain popularity for post-workout recovery. Cryotherapy believes that sub-freezing temps can help speed up muscle recovery and reduce inflammation by constricting blood vessels. Post-session, you should experience improved blood flow and less pain overall. Cryotherapy has been done by professional athletes who train at a high level, but with Cryotherapy gyms opening up all over, you can treat your body like an elite athlete offerings and flash sales, cryo appears to be making a cold dash for the mainstream.
#3 Hiring Personal Trainers – Personal trainers will continue to be an important part of the professional staff of health and fitness facilities. Even with one session with a trainer, you can teach the correct way to perform exercises and get the workout you need specifically for your goals. This is crucial if you want to minimize your risk of injury and ensure success.
