If you are looking at this Page, then you searching for a way to reduce your tight, stiff and sore muscles.
Purposeful Foam Rolling uses techniques developed by Brian Hagan, LMBT which uses a foam roller and self care tools in a very focused and rehabilitative way. This allows you to go deeper and deeper into your muscles to reduce the root cause of muscular tightness and pain.
Although, Purposeful Foam Rolling is a great tool and resource in reducing your tight, stiff and sore muscles, it is imperative to realize that your body did not get this way in a week. Your body has developed this tightness and soreness over your lifetime. The wonderful thing is that it will not take the same amount of time to reduce your tight and sore muscles, but it will take time and effort.
Like diet, eating healthy for a week will not give you the changes you are looking for. To see a change in your body and how you feel, a healthy diet must become part of your lifestyle.
The same is true for Purposeful Foam Rolling. Foam rolling for a week will offer short term results. If you are looking for a body that has healthy and flexible muscles for the long term, then Purposeful Foam Rolling should be part of your healthy lifestyle.
The Purposeful Foam Rolling Membership provides you the time you need to view all the programs and learn the skills to use the foam roller effectively, and efficiently to reduce your tight, stiff and sore muscles.
This is not only a training site, but also a long term resource. With the Purposeful Foam Rolling Program you now know which muscles you need to foam roll if your knee is hurting, or your elbow or your ankle...
