About the Five: Each month I offer five exercises to improve your strength, balance, flexibility, and mobility. My hope is that you will go through these on your own or with me at least three times a week.
Do you have a love/ hate relationship with your roller? Is your roller collecting dust in the basement? Do you feel like you “should” roll your legs, but avoid doing so because it hurts?
Let me show you how to incorporate this versatile tool into your self-care routine utilizing Fluid’s “Top Ten Foam Roller” exercises!
Join us Friday May 3rd at 6 pm for this fitness “Happy Hour”.
Learn how to gently release your soft tissue, strengthen your core, legs, and upper body, and improve your standing balance. I will provide light snacks and drinks. You are welcome to bring your own roller, use one of mine, or purchase a roller from me before class.
