Why the overused saying, ‘No Pain No gain’, should not be used to ignore signs to rest
After almost a whole year inside, maintaining our health and wellbeing has been hard, the limited option of home workouts and endless walks simply wasn’t enough for many of us.
Now, as we hold hopes of lockdown soon becoming a distant memory, health and fitness, and how we go about retaining it, has become a hot topic.
With many of the younger generation hitting the gyms hard since their reopening it’s important to recognise the importance of looking after our bodies on the journey to improved fitness.
Having been in the industry for so long, we’ve seen a lot of changing trends, and have always evolved in line with ever changing science and technology.
As lockdown began to lift we saw a huge influx in the amount of younger people hitting the gyms which is why it’s now more important than ever that we stress to those people that the importance of taking care of your body starts now.
Too often people dismiss little aches and pains until they become a big problem and young people often associate these common problems with age. But that’s simply not the case and issues, such as back pain, can occur at any age. We want to let these people know that the best cure is prevention.
The overused saying, ‘No pain, no gain” is regularly used as an excuse to mask discomfort and motivates gym goers to push further without always thinking of the physical consequences.
It must be stressed to gym-goers that, although muscle ache and soreness is to be expected, persistent pain is not and it speaks to a bigger issue that should not be ignored.
With this in mind, we’ve had a total rebrand to show that style and practicality can go hand in hand.
The introduction of new products like our popular back stretcher with acupressure means that anyone can now deal with common, everyday problems with our products as well as sports specific issues such as plantar fasciitis, pronation issues, achilles tendonitis and back pain with the help of their products.
Whilst our change of design to a sleek, sophisticated grayscale means that not only can you look after your body, but you can look good at the same time.
With this total rebrand has come a slight adjustment of our name, previously we were widely known as ProⅡWellbeing, but we’ve shed the roman numerals for the more modern name, Pro11 Wellbeing.
We wanted to change the look of the company so we thought, new look, new name to freshen things up whilst still being recognisable to our existing customers.
Following this transition, we feel we truly reflect not only our clientele, but also the ethos of our company and our incredible team that keep it running.
