Jacuzzi Water Therapy Demo at Health & Fitness Expo

Meet endurance athletes and veteran marathoners Bob and Doris Thews, pictured here with elite runner Luke Humphrey, second-place finisher at the 2010 Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in New Orleans. Bob and Doris will be offering great advice about how to stretch and how water therapy in a Jacuzzi hot tub can help speed recovery. They will be at the Jacuzzi booth at the Health & Fitness Expo in Seattle on June 23 and 24, 2011. It’s all part of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon & Half Marathon Series. Even if you’re not a runner, our Expo booth is the place to get expert tips on everything from relieving sore muscles to injury recovery and alleviating arthritis pain.

Here’s what marathoner and J-470 Jacuzzi hot tub owner Nick Pabarcus has to say about marathon training and the benefits of stretching, and water therapy:

“I’m in my mid-30s, 6’6” and slightly overweight at 230 lbs. The pounding that marathon training runs have put on my body over the years are relatively well documented in that I have had foot, ankle, knee and back issues along the way. Most of this is due to the fact that I have trouble being disciplined with the maintenance that goes along with trying to be somewhat athletic at 35. Stretching and recovery are two things that I had omitted completely from any training regimen in the past. Fortunately, including these critical pieces into my training routine has become much easier with the Jacuzzi hot tub and frankly more fun.”

I would say that quote goes right along with our philosophy of “Train Hard, Recover Faster.” Hot tubs position you for an effective hot tub stretching session, with jets targeted at calves, knees and legs. Flexibility is maximized and blood circulation is improved by the warm-water therapy massage in a Jacuzzi hot tub. Please stop by the Jacuzzi booth at the Health & Fitness Expo, say hello to Bob and Doris, and take away practical advice you can use!

All Rock ‘n’ Roll Series events feature the two-day Health & Fitness Expo presented by Power Balance prior to the event. Free and open to the public, these expos feature the latest in running technologies, fitness apparel, health and nutrition information and interactive displays.
