Hike to Mt. Baldy

Who wants to join me on a hike this Saturday January 25,  9 am??

The Devils Backbone Trail @ Mt. Baldy

 

Baldy1

The Devil’s Backbone trail is a trail that stretches along the ridge of the mountain east of the Mt. Baldy summit. This trail boats some of the MOST spectacular views in the Mt. Baldy area.(http://www.yelp.com/biz_…).

We will take the ski lift to the Baldy Notch (where the ski lift drops you off and where the lodge is) then hike to the Baldy summit, it is 3.2 miles, or 6.4 miles round-trip. The hike starts at 7,802 ft. elevation and the summit is 10,064 ft

The first section of the hike from the notch to the start of Devil’s Backbone is slightly over a mile. This stretch is fairly steep, then we will get to the Devil’s Backbone trail head. Also the final stretch, 1 mile, is also harder.
Let me know if you want to join me!! Carina

Massage and Fitness Recovery

massage-therapist1-300x175Recovery Never Felt So Good

Whether you are an exercise addict or just beginning a fitness routine from a sedentary lifestyle, everyone can benefit from therapeutic massage.  This is because we all use our bodies in repetitive ways, such as sitting at the computer for long periods of time or driving.  Both your fitness routine and your daily repetitive behaviors cause soreness, tension, and even strain in your muscles.

The ability of massage to assist in muscular recovery can be astounding.  Relief from tension, greater range of motion, a greater mind-body connection, and an overall sense of relief and relaxation are just a few of the feel-good benefits of massage.

Recover Like an Athlete

Sports massage, also known as manual therapy, has been popular among professional athletes for decades.  If you want to train like an athlete massage should definitely be included in your fitness regimen.  Regular massage can improve your overall fitness level by enhancing flexibility, reducing fatigue, improving endurance, preventing injuries, and relieving stressed muscles from intense workouts.

MFR Recovery Therapy

Our massage therapists at Pro Fitness Network specialize in a form of therapeutic massage called Myofascial Release (MFR).  One of the most relevant massage techniques for sports recovery, MFR works to resolve strain patterns, eliminate pain, and restore motion by releasing the restrictions in our fascia, or connective tissue.

Through regular therapeutic massage with fitness specific techniques such as MFR you can experience faster recovery, a greater connection to your muscles, and improve your fitness level.

Call the Pro Fitness Network today at (626) 799-7243 and schedule your next massage for fitness recovery. First session is $10 off – new clients only.

What is Myofascial Release?

Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce muscle or sinew related pain.  Myofascial Release applies gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial (muscle/sinew) connective tissue to eliminate pain and restore motion.
