Pros Offer Recovery Advice at Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series Health and Fitness Expos
July 01, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsJacuzzi® Brings Running Professionals to Expos in Eight U.S. Cities
Chino, CA, July 1, 2011 – Jacuzzi, the leading name in hot tub hydrotherapy, has tapped running and fitness professionals to offer tips and techniques to attendees at select Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Health and Fitness Expos being held across the U.S. from now until the end of the year. The pros will help spread the word about how a combination of flexibility and stretching exercises, along with warm water massage, can prevent and speed recovery from muscle soreness and common injuries.
Experts at the Jacuzzi booth at the two-day Expos will demonstrate the proper ways to stretch, prepare for race day, and recover faster while training for endurance events. Physical therapists and exercise professionals have long recommended proper stretching as a way to enhance flexibility, increase circulation, and help relieve minor injuries. The warm, jet-driven water in outdoor hot tubs can also help boost blood flow and relax sore, stressed muscles.
Runner James Staten, who last was the first to finish all 14 events in the Competitor.com Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series, believes in the power of hot tub hydrotherapy for easing muscle soreness. His "recovery recipe" includes a session in a Jacuzzi hot tub. The patented hydrotherapy delivered in Jacuzzi's outdoor hot tubs and indoor bathtubs meets the needs of active people who experience strains and soreness.
"I like to rotate between the seats of my J-325 starting with jets pulsating on my lower back muscles, then to the spine-tingler opposite the foot jet for a nice arch rub, then over to the seat with jets hitting the shoulder blades," says Staten.
Regional Manager Patti Ryan says that people can sit in a variety of positions in the contoured seats in Jacuzzi's outdoor hot tubs. The seats help them take advantage of hot tub hydrotherapy to target different muscles, combining stretching with a beneficial warm water and massage combination.
The Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Expo in San Diego, CA, was the first stop for Jacuzzi on the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon circuit. Elite runner Luke Humphreys from Team Hanson's-Brooks was featured. From there, the Series traveled to Seattle, WA. The Jacuzzi booth is scheduled to be at select cities hosting the Dodge Rock 'n' Roll marathons and half-marathons in Chicago, Virginia Beach, Philadelphia, San Jose, Denver and Las Vegas.
