Today’s Fitness Tip:
- If it hurts, move it! Except in cases of knife-like shooting pains and tingling numbness, in general you want to move what hurts. Sore neck? Roll it gently. Sore hips? Go for a walk and do some stretches. Sore back? If gentle movements make the pain worse, you need to speak with your doctor. ~ Women’s Fitness Specialist, Bethany Learn of Fit 2 B Studio
