Featured Activity of the Month: Foam Rolling

After a tense week, or a difficult workout you need to take time to stretch and relieve muscle soreness and tension. One of the best ways to relieve and restore normal muscle function is through the practice of self-myofascial release, or foam rolling. Rising in popularity, but not at all new to professional athletes. This is a recovery method that has been used by trainers for years, but has now made a mainstream appearance and doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon. So, what exactly is foam rolling?

So, what exactly is the POP program? POP is targeted toward children ages 12 and under and their parents. It is a produce tasting program designed to make it easier for kids and adults to try new, healthy foods. Sometimes, it is not the kids that are picky and unwilling to try new foods, it’s the parents. This program presents the opportunity to step out and try new foods, by sampling recipes that feature these fruits and vegetables. The program not only allows the sampling of the produc…
