Local Fitness Pro: Read This Book to Reduce Muscle Pain

I've followed Jill Miller for a couple years now, so needless to say I was interested in reading her book when it came out. In over 10 years in the fitness business, I have yet to find a book that can reach a broader audience than The Roll Model.

Not everyone lifts weight or runs marathons, but anyone can experience pain in their muscles and fascia from improper movement or tightness from a lack of movement. This book will teach you how to take care of your tissue using simplistic tools, such as therapy balls, that can be purchased at most stores.

Plus, The Roll Model is easy to read. You do not have to be an exercise physiologist to understand it and it is arranged very well. I use this book all the time at Swing This Kettlebell and Strength to help clients achieve better quality movement and as a guide for things they can do at home for themselves. 

Modifications and case studies for nearly all muscles and types of people are also included.  

This is one book that I think everyone should own, especially if you are looking to decrease muscular pain and tightness.

The Roll Model is available at Roebling Point Books & Coffee in Covington and I have several of the tools mentioned in the book at my fitness studio.
