“Should I still workout if I’m injured?”

I had a great conversation a few days ago with one of our members who had tweaked their knee playing tennis a day prior.

Initially, she wanted to cancel her session and wait a few days before coming in to work out. She expressed it as, “I just want to give it some time to rest and heal up, and I don’t want to make it any worse.”

I completely understand not wanting to exacerbate an injury.

In all likelihood, if you were to consult with your general physician, the advice you would receive would echo this sentiment: “Just rest it for a few days.”

While it might be wise to avoid exercises that directly challenge the knee if it hurts, skipping workouts altogether would mean missing out on a significant opportunity.



Even if we exclude lower body exercises entirely, the hormonal benefits and increased blood flow associated with training the rest of your body will keep you feeling fit and help enhance recovery.

Rely on the guidance and support of your coaches. They are there to help you navigate these decisions and ensure that you still have a great workout while staying safe.


If your knee is bothering you, we can redirect our focus to upper body & core work.

If you’ve tweaked your shoulder, we can focus on the other arm, lower body, & conditioning.


It’s our job to keep you safe, but we also need to hold you accountable and demonstrate that you can still have an effective workout.

So, the next time you’re considering skipping a session because something hurts, just give us a call and speak with your coach. They’ll make sure you leave feeling better than when you walked in.

Keep moving forward,
