Repair Sports Institute: Getting Summer Ready



Are you ready for the summer? We know we are! The warm weather poses so many new and fun activities, from summer teams to beach trips to clubs and camps. With all the hustle and bustle of summertime activities, it can sometimes be difficult to fit the necessary amounts of physical activity into your busy schedule, especially if summer is your off-season.

5 SIMPLE SUMMER HEALTH TIPS PREPARE YOURSELF FOR WARMER WE ATHER However, at Repair Sports Institute, we want to make sure you’re still maintaining your optimum levels of physical function, even when you’re lounging on the sand! These simple tips can help you better prepare for summer: 1. Get outside! This may seem like an obvious one, but not everyone has a strong interest in the outdoors. It can sometimes be difficult, especially on particularly hot or humid days. However, getting outside as often as you can will boost your energy levels and get you some much-needed Vitamin D. Make your way over to your local pool, peruse around nearby shops, or simply take a walk around the neighborhood to get out, get moving, and enjoy the weather! 2. Rearrange your schedule. Does your schedule leave little time to fit in physical activity? Perhaps you have a full day of commuting to and from your 9-5 job, preparing your kids for summer camps, volunteering, and acting as a chauffeur while the kids are

out of school. However, even adding in 30 minutes of physical activity into your busy routine can make a big difference in helping maintain your function. Try taking a walk during your lunch break, going to the gym in the morning before making your commute, or even treating yourself to an exercise class a couple nights a week – you deserve it! Are you part of a summer sports team? If so, it is important to make sure you prepare your body for the upcoming season beforehand! Use this time to start training, maintaining a nutritious diet, and strengthening the necessary parts of your body. At Repair Sports Institute, we also offer training and performance classes to train your body for your specific sport! Contact us to find out how we can get you to your peak performance for your summer team. 3. Get healthy for your summer team.

“Living an active life means I’m addicted to movement. So when I suffered a rotator cuff injury during a fire at work, I knew I wouldn’t be able to sit still for long. I was to the point I couldn’t even pull up my arm and rotate it to look at my watch. The first doctor I went to* tried scheduling my surgery date right then and there. I knew how much this was going to change my addiction, and I had to fight for it. Before letting them cut on me, I chose to do physical therapy. After going to Repair and with NO surgery, I can feed the addiction of constant movement and activity...beach volleyball, surfing, CrossFit, you name it, and I can sure look at my watch anytime I want.” - Sean (Firefighter)
