Open invitation to all coaches/trainers

Dear fellow coach/trainer,

Would you like to get more followers and drive more traffic to your blog? Would you like exposure for your content? I have no advice to get more followers, traffic or exposure. But I do have an offer you shouldn´t refuse.

Back in the day, I started blogging as all of you, with no followers and thousands of questions. After two years of daily posting, I´m proud to say I have thousands of followers and a bunch of answers.

There are some well-known strategies to get your blog out there, like awards, tags, and so on. Between nominations and invitations, I realized guest post worked better for me. It´s logical, I got invited to write about fitness at any blog, some followers of this blogger like what they read and they decided to follow me as well.

I will be in debt forever with Kally, at Middleme for showing up in my email with a great idea, exercising at the workplace. Besides all the fun, the biggest advantage for guest authors are the free backlinks, traffic, and subscribers they receive.

In the other hand, I had the chance to be the host. Again, more followers and traffic. I dare to say it´s a win-win situation. That´s why I openly invite you, fellow trainer, to write a guest post for this blog.

I can offer you 2000 WP followers, almost 3000 followers on Twitter, and near 1000 on Facebook. But most important, a great and active community I love and care about. So, a positive and encouraging message towards a healthy living is required.

Please, email to info@chape.es if you´re interested.

Best,

Chape

Foam Roller: Neck Relief

At the base of the skull is a small group of muscles that serves to control and stabilize the head. These muscles can become overworked and chronically shortened. As these muscles adapt to the shortened position they can begin to impede blood flow to the brain and can be associated with tension headaches and chronic neck pain. Releasing these muscles can provide relief from chronic pain and headaches.

Measures

“Perfection is the measure of heaven, and the wish to be perfect the measure of the man.” Johan Wolfgang Von Goethe

Foam Roller: Upper Back Relief

A lot of people suffer from tightness in their upper back and shoulders.  Sometimes it feels like knots between your shoulder blades, while other times the pain might feel like it’s spreading from your upper back into your neck. The main cause of upper back and neck pain is a sedentary lifestyle, and extended use of computers, phones, and tablets. Upper back pain also easily leads to neck pain.

The key to foam rolling your upper body is actually to not roll much at all. Instead, use the roller to isolate smaller areas and allow them to release slowly from the pressure of your body’s weight on the roller.

If you need a reminder, read the general instructions on how to foam rolling, here.
