Premier Personal Training helps Vancouver rock climbers reach new heights
Premier Personal Training. Vancouver's corrective exercise specialists, will be applying their expertise to help Vancouver rock climbers reach new heights, avoid injury and back pain at a workshop at the Hive climbing.
Our bodies perform and feel best when in neutral alignment. The current Canadian lifestyle has the majority of individuals spending the majority of their day seated and slumped at a computer, TV or handheld device.
These habitual patterns create a poor postural alignment that causes certain muscle groups to overwork, causing strain on joints, connective tissue and the spine. Poor posture, specifically rounded shoulders and forward head, increases the likelihood of lower back pain and shoulder injury. This deviation from neutral posture also weakens important muscles in the back and trunk that will detriment performance potential.
Utilizing Premier Personal Training's expertise, the workshop will teach a combination of flexibility and strengthening exercises specifically designed to correct poor posture and help rock climbers avoid injury and reach new heights.
Through education, motivation and sharing her own experience with chronic pain and injury, Christina Longo along with Premier Personal Training and the Hive will help the climbing community stand taller and climb higher.
