I walked into my CrossFit box, camera in one hand, Biofreeze® Pain Reliever products in the other. Immediately a coach said, ‘Biofreeze® is in my bag too!‘ That led to a conversation about muscle aches and pains that just follow athletes around. While minor aches and pains may seem like no big deal, they can stop us from going to the gym or lead to uncomfortable feeling that can keep us from exercising at all. I discovered them a little while ago when I realized that by stepping up my CrossFit workouts, I also was stepping up some muscle aches in my back, my legs and other parts that I was targeting. The cooling relieve of Biofreeze Pain Reliever products has consistently helped me manage those sore muscles so I always have it in my gym bag too. With Biofreeze®, I can Overcome Pain and Push Forward with the goals I have for myself.
It is just a fact of life that when we don’t feel good, we limit ourselves. I have been pushing myself to grow my ability working out since I changed boxes last month. I love the sport and the fact that it gives you what you give it. Since I am not going as often, allowing my body to recover a little in between, I don’t want to be limited when I do hit the box. But as anyone knows – runners, gymnasts, weight lifters, tennis players, etc. – we all hold back when there is soreness or aches that are irritating. One of the things I want to do is to get my three rep back squat to 200 pounds. I am up to 185 pounds, which is nothing to boo at, but I want to push forward. However, when the back starts to twinge from soreness, I need intervention to help me overcome pain and push forward! I know that I am not hurting myself and know I can do more!
Biofreeze® Pain Reliever products are a safe and effective pain relief alternative because they are non-systemic, non-narcotic, and contain no NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), salicylates or addictive substances. Yes, I do take pain relievers sometimes, but I much prefer the cold therapy pain relief Biofreeze® offers. It works well for me and gives me that quick cooling effect that keeps me going.
I really like the Biofreeze® Continous 360° Spray. I can pull it out, spray it directly where the pain is resonating and get relief pretty quickly. In fact, a few weeks ago I bruised my knee playing basketball in the driveway with my daughter and I turned to it to take the pain down a notch.
For my back, I really like the Biofreeze® Roll-on. I can’t reach every part of my back to spread a product around but the Roll-on easily glides in that tough to reach spot and gives me that cooling pain relief I really need. Biofreeze® Pain Reliever products do not require a prescription, contain United States Pharmacopeia (USP) grade menthol to provide fast acting pain relief, and are free of parabens and propylene glycol. They are available in both its signature green and colorless (dye-free) formats, are never tested on animals, and are produced in the United States.
Think of it this way: Biofreeze® Pain Reliever products are as effective as ice for treating pain, but without the drippy bag and much more convenient for on-the-go. It is pretty hard to carry around bags of ice when you work out. Biofreeze® just makes it easier!
How are you working out these days? Are you dealing with sore muscles, too?
