A Dedicated Space for Active and Passive Recovery Pre- and Post-Workout

Welcome to the JCC Recovery Room

The Recovery Room is a dedicated space to aid in active and passive recovery pre- and post-workout.

Research shows that recovery is just as important as exercise, affecting the inflammation, soreness and lactic acid build-up in your body, as well as your risk of injury.

Active recovery means staying physically active while you recover from higher intensity exercise by using gentle, non-strenuous movements.

Passive recovery requires no movement at all; you simply let your body rest while you sit or lie down.

Some of the benefits of Recovery are:

· Reduces the buildup of lactic acid in the muscles, minimizing post-exercise stiffness and discomfort.
· Helps alleviate fatigue and improve moods that typically crash after a big sporting event.
· Promotes blood flow to the joints and muscles, counteracting inflammation.
