How to deal with injuries

When you’re serious about achieving any type of fitness goal, a huge fear can be around getting injured.  We have the most highly qualified coaches here at Epic Fitness to prevent that or even rehab an injury, but sometimes things happen outside of the gym that land you in pain.

There are certain cases of injury so significant that movement is inadvisable, so you should always consult a doctor.  But if it’s a particular body part that is injured, I’d like to inspire you to look at the injury as an opportunity.

Let me give you an example…

Several years ago I sustained a torn ligament in my ankle which prevented me from doing running and most exercise.  Even walking was painful.  I realized, though, that by focusing on my nutrition I could still stay committed to my personal health goals.  And I got REALLY good at logging and prepping all my meals and snacks.  In addition I focused on non-weight bearing exercises like pushups and got my cardio in using the battle ropes.

I searched for the thing I could do versus focusing on what I couldn’t do, and it made all the difference.  I didn’t lose total faith in my ability to get results despite an injury.  I’d encourage you to do the same.

If you have a knee injury, what can you do with your upper body?  If you have a shoulder issue, how can you train your heart or lower body?

In most cases, there’s something that can be done, so please, please don’t give up entirely!

We can help you if you’re in pain…

Being in pain can be a life-altering experience, and we want you to know that no matter where you are, we can help you through it.  

Is this something you can relate to?  If not, do you have a friend who might need some hope and guidance to get through an injury?

I’d love for you to reply and let me know, or forward this email to someone who it could help.

We want everyone living their best, fittest, and happiest life!

Yours in Health,

Kaitlin B
