Exercise Doesn’t Have to Hurt

Some of us have made New Years Resolutions this year and most of them included a new workout routine. It’s only the beginning of March and it seems everyone I know has given up their new healthy lifestyle. The excuses range from the obvious cop out of there just isn’t enough time to the believable muscle soreness and aches and pains caused by exercise.

 It’s hard enough to stick to working out regularly but when you add pain from working out it makes it even harder to stick to this resolution.  Now I know that Exercise Doesn’t Have to Hurt.That’s why I keep Salonpas products in my medicine cabinet for instant relief.

Working Out Doesn't Have to Hurt

I have not found a better way to combat pain from working out and my favorite product has to be the Deep Relieving Gel that lasts up to 8 hours. It’s not greasy like some of the other less effective brands and it can be used in multiple spots. I get the most soreness in my lower back and on my joints so being able to use one fast acting, quickly absorbing product for several problems is great!

Working Out Doesn't Have to Hurt

My husband has a very physical job and comes home with terrible pains everyday. He has the most problems with his lower back and shoulder pains. His favorite product to use is the Salonpas pain relieving GEL-PATCH HOT. The pain relief lasts up to 8 hours and he is able to get a good night of rest before heading back to work. The patch is ideal for sleeping because the rounded corners prevent peeling and the split film in the center allows for easy application.
