Strong Balance and Injury Prevention

WQ Strong BalanceOn January 31st, Missy Hughes headed up to Devil’s Thumb Ranch with the folks at Women’s Quest to teach a Strong Balance Class and talk about injury prevention.  Here is a little snip it from her talk:

If your posture is poor, you will definitely overload and hurt your body. Exercise then becomes a catalyst to injury rather than a ticket to health. Prep your body for your activities and take your rest days to insure a lifetime of activity.
