If you’re a frequent class taker at Body One, then you know we go hard in our workouts. We strive to give it our all in every workout. However, we don’t forget about proper recovery and making sure we take care of our bodies after the workout. Typically we do some sort of cool down at the end but there are also other ways of recovery, such as myofascial release tools.
So what we did was create a list of the most popular ones for you to be able to do your research and determine which is the right one for you!
