  • Performax could not be any prouder of Wendy.  I don’t know a single competitor that worked harder than her.  Repost from @fitmomwendy_ifbb_pro using @RepostRegramApp - In order to keep my back and body feeling good i had a team of people working with me all year.  I had gotten bi-weekly massages, weekly visits to @performaxptw to blade my back and legs and I used Bobby "the stretching guy" @Bevs gym.  This regimen kept me pain free and injured free for a year.  Since I've competed and gotten back to training as hard as always, I haven't had time to return to everything.  Not a surprise that this week my back fell apart.  I haven t been this uncomfortable in a long time.  It was a major reminder that I need to make time for preventive therapy, because if I am going to put this much effort into working on my body from the outside , I also need to do the same to keep everything IN my body functioning at it should.  Don't forget about taking care of yourself in and out of the gym.  Don't wait for your body to fail you In order to keep it healthy.  This doesn't just apply to working out.  Take care of your mind, body and spirit on a daily basis. Let's NOT wait for a doctor to tell you to for medical reasons to lose weight. Let's not wait for relationships to fall apart to work on ourselves. How u treat yourself directly correlates to ALL the outcomes in our lives!. What we are Not doing catches up to all of us! I have certainly had my share of lessons learned the hard way. Happy Sunday 💪👊

CDC estimates reveal that between 1.6 million and 3.8 million concussions occur each year. 5-10% of athletes will experience a concussion in any given sport. The most common youth sports in which concussions occur are boys football and girls soccer. Only 78% of concussions occur during games; the remaining 22% occurring during practices. It is important to look out for concussion symptoms for 48 hours following a head injury, for an estimated 47% of athletes do not report feeling any symptoms directly following a concussive blow. Some symptoms to be aware of include headaches, dizziness, and nausea. In a case when these symptoms occur, be sure to seek medical attention and DO NOT return to sports until cleared by a therapist and medical professional. Performax therapists offer post-concussion testing for clearance to return to sports!


Concussions in youth sports are more common and more serious than many people realize. When suffering from a blow to the head, a child should seek medical attention within 48 hours to be assessed for any concussion symptoms; Some concussion symptoms may not arise for several hours after the injury occurs. Children should never return to playing sports after undergoing a concussion without being evaluated and cleared by a medical professional. Base line testing is highly recommended so that we can have pre-concussion results to refer to when testing kids on their ability to return to sports.
