Active Recovery 

Do you cringe every time Overhead Squats show up on the board? Do you have shoulder pain and not know what to do about it? Is your performance limited by your range of motion? Do you just want to move and feel better?

The best (and healthiest!) athletes know that the key to training longevity and improved performance is recovery. Active Recovery class is an hour in which you'll be guided through a combination of soft tissue work, mobility techniques, and restorative practices to improve range of motion, joint health, and overall performance. In each class, you'll learn skills and methods for targeted recovery based on your specific needs and our CrossFit group class programming.

Classes may include:

  • Myofascial release techniques (using foam rollers, alpha balls, etc.)
  • Range of motion testing to clearly identify limitations
  • Joint stability exercises for improved movement quality (e.g., rotator cuff activation)
  • Dynamic stretching
  • Guided meditation, breathwork, and stress reduction techniques
  • Movement circuits to incorporate full and healthy range of motion

We wrote a detailed article about this class on our business blog, Inside the Affiliate, "Running an Active Recovery Class."
