#FITTIP for the weekend: Rest days are just as important as your workout days. Taking a break lets your body recover and helps your muscles rebuild. It also helps decrease soreness so you feel stronger during your next workout. If you prefer active recovery, get in some light movement by taking a walk or going to a yoga class. It’s also perfectly okay to rest completely so your body and mind can feel fully recovered before your next workout.
Also, look out for the NEW The Sunday Recovery Class starting in July with our beloved yoga instructor Yessi. Click here for more info. I’m really excited about this one!
