Empower R & R Massage and Stretching

Hi neighbors!

Here is another way to Start the Year Off Right!  Empower Fitness has a relax and recover item to help remove the stress and tension of the day.  The kit comes with a cushioned massage roller, a stretching strap, therapy ball and a R & R Program Guide.  This is something my neighbors are going to want to take a closer look at!

Let me tell you just a little bit about Empower.  They are a site devoted to and designed for women.  Their goal is to help inspire and motivate you to love a healthier life.  Their products are ergonomically designed for women.
This feels great!

Empower isn't about quick fixes or false promises.  Empower IS about real-life solutions that incorporate fitness, workout routines, nutrition, and wellness expertise for women just like you, living full lives, who want to be the best they can be.  Empower is here to inspire and motivate you to be active, healthy, and strong.

Before I tell you about anything else I want to share one of the exercises with the therapy ball for the foot.  My right leg still has numbness from the disc injury over a year ago, this extends all the way down the calf and into the foot.  My foot often feels tight and numb or tingly.  One of the exercises with the ball is to place it under the arch of the foot with toes flexed.  Slowly point toes and press down against the ball making a fist with your foot.  Roll the ball under the entire surface of the bottom of the foot in small circles clockwise and counterclockwise for additional compression massage, pausing at points of tension.  Repeat on opposite foot.  I am enjoying this!  It really feels great on both feet, but especially on the foot that bothers me.  I can do this while working on my computer!

For all exercises you are to roll slowly and adjust pressure to your comfort.  You should roll until tension or pain is diminished.  Be sure to relax the muscles you are working on.  Pressure may seem uncomfortable at first, but should lessen as you continue repetitions.

You use the stretching strap to work on your upper back and hamstrings.  (Also good for my leg!)  You use both the stretching strap and roller for this exercise.  I am not going to tell you how to do each exercise as this is from  their book and you must purchase the set for to get the exercises.  I will share here though, the neck exercise works!  I have tried it!

With the roller you are able to work on many different areas of the body.  The neck, calves, forearms, lats, upper back, hip, shins, hamstrings and others.  The little booklet shows and explains each exercise.  What a SUPER way to start your new year off right!

Feeling some tension after a long day homeschooling?  Maybe you have just had a day and need some time to unwind.  Pull out your Empower R & R and relieve the tension in those muscles.  Get a massage at home! Reach areas you could not reach by yourself by using these set.

I have pictures of some of the exercises.  My daughter volunteered to be in the pictures for me.  We did not show any using the strap as we all wear dresses or skirts, and the pictures would not have been good.

How many of my neighbors could use a little stress and tension relief?  Maybe a little help loosening up some tight muscles?  Be sure to visit Empower Fitness and check out the R & R set ($39.99).  You might want to take a minute and see the other products they have available.

I will be using this often!

One neighbor will receive an R & R set from Empower Fitness.

To relieve stress and tension I love to take a long, hot bubble bath.

I get lots of shoulder/neck stress. So I do shoulder rolls and stretch my neck and do neck circles. (But the ball under the foot sounds awesome!! I'm sure it feels great!)

I take my dog for a long(er than usual) walk when I feel I need to get rid of some stress. It helps me clear my head and work the tension out of my body, not to mention I get to spend some time with my buddy!
