Joining a fitness center is a great way to get the resources you need to maintain a regular exercise routine. After a rigorous workout, treat your body to the rest and recuperation it has earned. You can do just that when you join the Oak Hill or Riverside locations of Planet Fitness-Austin! Members with a PF Black Card have access to a variety of relaxing amenities, including our massage chairs. Here is a closer look at the benefits of massage after a hard workout.
- Relax After Your Workout: Cooling down is an important component of your workout. After cooling down, you can help your body relax even more by using one of our massage chairs. A treat after a long and tiring gym workout, these chairs reward your body for the hard work it has put in.
- Reduce Muscle Inflammation: When you exercise, you are actually damaging your muscles in order to build more muscle. This is a normal part of strength-training, and your muscles become stronger as they repairs the effects of each workout. Fluids and hormones released during the repair process can cause swelling and inflammation in the muscles. A massage can help calm inflamed muscles and relieve soreness or pain.
- Speed Up the Repair Process: Getting a massage is also a great way to enhance the muscle repair process. Research shows that post-workout massages can reduce pain in the muscles and speed up the repair process. Using one of our massage chairs will allow your body to heal faster, making it easier to maintain your workout routine.
