“People have become a little obsessed with this idea that the more you train, the more ripped you’re going to be,” says Lauren Roxburgh, fascia and alignment expert. “It’s really about the way you train that changes the shape of your body and posture. There’s a lot more benefit in rejuvenating, restorative and mindful-based movement systems. I think the more people do it, the more they realize that this way of holistically sculpting the body is a game-changer.”
Foam rolling is like flossing: Even though you know you should do it regularly, you may only actually do it when you notice an issue (in the case of your workout, that’d be when you’re sore). But before you beat yourself up, know that while you may not be reaping all the benefits of rolling that you could, just reserving it for after a tough workout or for when your muscles are aching isn’t necessarily a bad thing, says Lauren Roxburgh, a trainer and structural integrative specialist.
Last week we got the amazing opportunity to speak with fitness and fascia expert Lauren Roxburgh. Personal trainer, mind-body-soul expert, teacher, and soon to be author, Lauren is truly an inspiration. With clients such as Gwyneth Paltrow, we just knew we would love her. She was very easy to talk to, and so happy to educate us on how to find our best bodies- think better metabolism, less cellulite, and more energy, yes please! — Megan Bourassa
