Workout Routine While Recovering From an Injury

Today I am happy to have Max McGee, who is the General Manager at Title Boxing Cary guest posting for me. He knows a little about coming back from an injury as he broke his leg in three places during the winter. He had been so gracious to agree to write a post about how to fit workouts into your routines. This is also a two part post as well so check back tomorrow for the final round.

When Melissa asked me to write this article I didn’t really know where to start. After talking to her a bit she was looking for two things. How to work out when recovering from an injury and what makes TITLE Boxing in Cary different. To me, recovering from an injury or just starting a new workout routine need some of the same things; fun, motivation, and the ability to see progress quickly. When trying to describe that I found myself relating back to TITLE and how we do it! When reading this focus on the message of what will help you with recovery or starting your new workout and use my TITLE plugs as examples that might help you find what you are looking for!

When coming back from an injury or even just trying to get back into exercising one of the hardest parts is finding something that you can do or feel comfortable doing. It is impossible for anyone to make progress or see results if you are not able to put in your full effort because you are distracted or self conscience. Here at TITLE Boxing Club in Cary we focus on being able to enhance that experience and make the road to recovery, or to that fitness goal, obtainable. We have created a workout that is engaging and motivating, while at the same time allows you to work at your own pace and see results quickly. Any obstacles can be overcome with a little help!

When coming back from an injury it is important to find a workout that is motivating. The rehab process is not fun and extremely slow. If you are able to find something that is a little more engaging then you will feel motivated to work out. Here at TITLE we not only know your name, but we know your reason for being here. We want to know why you are here so we can help you reach your goal…if you have trouble holding yourself accountable, don’t worry we will! This philosophy runs through all our members. This workout is in a group setting, and our members are addicted, so when you set up on the bag next to them and you are new…they want to know you name and will help you out throughout class because they remember their first time. Sometimes coming off an injury you need the mental push and comfort before you can start the work and an atmosphere like TITLE has is something that helps your mental psyche before we even get to the physical part.

Tune into tomorrow for the final round.
