This Months Webinar Topic:
Returning To Sports After A Pandemic
How You Can Prevent Common Injuries That Can Happen When You Return To Sport Too Fast
Date: Tuesday, September 7th
Time: 6pm – 6:30/6:45 PM
Many things were canceled, paused or postponed this past year during the shutdown of the pandemic. Many of which included our sports, gym memberships and other fitness activities that we like to participate in. As a result a record number of people became sedentary/ inactive during the pandemic.
The is a big concern because being inactive for long periods of time can lead to health concerns/risks. However many things have now opened back up and many people will become active once again! HOWEVER if you are not smart, safe or careful going from an inactive lifestyle to active can cause injuries.
Injuries can happen when you return to sport or training too quickly.
Thats why during this webinar we will talk about common injuries (especially those associated with returning to a sport to quicky) and HOW TO PREVENT them!
