How much time do you spend using and abusing your body versus nurturing and caring for it?!
Trust me, there is no criticism here because we all do it!
That is why it is important to find small ways that we can care for the body. Foam rolling is a great way to do that because it takes little time and provides a great impact.
I love teaching my clients to foam roll because it gives them the power to address their own aches and pains right at home or at the gym, any time they want. I even have a client that keeps a foam roller at his office now! You will no longer need to sit in discomfort feeling helpless or schedule a massage to get someone else to help with it.
This course will teach you a variety of foam rolling techniques and help you address problem areas in a variety of different ways. You also gain access to three full length routines that will help you figure out which routine is ideal for you or you may like to vary it up and use all three.
Foam Rolling is highly beneficial for:
Before you workout to warm up the muscles and improve circulation so your muscles can work at peak performance levels.
After you workout to release lactic acid and help reduce soreness.
Relieving overall stress and tension in the body and mind.
Reducing and even eliminating chronic aches and pains for a wide variety of issues like plantar fasciitis, lower back pain, knee pain, hip pain, neck pain and more.
Improving your posture and gait.
Reducing tightness from sitting at a desk all day.
I find many people have a foam roller at home already but simply aren't confident in what exactly to do on it. I can't even count the amount of times I have walked through the gym and seen the crazy things people ARE doing with it that aren't ideal. This course will give you the confidence to roll every part of your body with proper techniques that keep you safe AND are more effective in less time.
If you get to the end of the course and hate foam rolling, I teach you how to use a massage gun to get a similar effect!
Who this course is for:
- If you have any nagging aches and pains you would like to relieve yourself.
- Athletes and intense exercisers that would like to perform at their peak and get quicker relief from muscle soreness.
- You sit behind a desk so much that your posture is getting worse and your body is getting tighter.
My name is Hilery Hutchinson and I have been interested in fitness since I was a little girl working out with Mousercise on the Disney channel and playing with my workout barbie and LA Gear weight set.
I watched my dad battle brain cancer for most of my childhood and that is actually what motivated me to enter this field. He was always active until the very end and had a love of sports, so I thought fitness was also a way to honor him. It led me to get quite a few of my specialty certifications and I have worked very closely with a wide variety of health problems and physical disabilities. I am a Cancer Exercise Specialist, I teach Adaptive Yoga for the Disabled, and Yoga of the Heart for Cardiac Rehab and Cancer Patients. I also virtually train caregivers to stretch out their loved ones or patients in bed and use aromatherapy, Ayurveda, and natural remedies to help soothe their ailments.
My true experience in the fitness world really began when I was 14. At that time I was growing too fast, my knees were dislocating, and my doctor told me I better start lifting weights. I started working with a personal trainer and never had a knee problem again. I think that planted a little seed on how transformative personal training can be. I feel like I have been in the gym ever since! Now I have 55 certifications in the fitness and wellness field and I have been working in the industry for 20 years!
I have gone through my own personal journey with illness and have finally found my way back to health. This was a five-year journey in figuring out how to heal which led to another evolution in my career. I spend most of my time now as a spiritual life coach helping others work on healing their past in mind, body, and spirit. Now I have my own retreat center in El Salvador and I am enjoying working in person and online with clients all over the world rather than traveling to them.
I really try to use all of my knowledge and experience to create unique programs for my clients and courses for students. I feel like my entire career path, life path, and all my certifications have really come together in a beautiful way. I really love what I do and can't imagine any other profession.
