Recovery of the Week: Let’s talk about shoulder issues. We’ve probably all dealt with some shoulder discomfort at one point or another. Instead of ignoring your body’s warning signs we encourage you to be proactive. One of the most effective ways we’ve found to help strengthen your shoulders and remove pain is Crossover Symmetry. Below is a video we put together to help understand how to use the Crossover Symmetry system. If you have any further questions please feel free to reach out to any of the coaches.
