The Hidden Power of Rest & Recovery: Insights from Campbell Personal Trainers


This month we’re talking all about BALANCE here on our blog and our Campbell personal trainers have got a little reminder for you today.


If you have been going at it hard with your workouts, don’t forget to REST and RECOVER.


That refers to your workouts, but honestly, it’s critical when it comes to ANYTHING that stresses your body (and mind!) – for good or for bad.


4 reasons from our Campbell personal trainers on why it’s important to take a rest & recovery day:

  1. It gives your fibroblasts (special cells that help repair & build muscle tissue) time to do their job.
  2. Your body gets a chance to fully replenish your glycogen (energy) stores so that your muscles are energized and ready to go for your next workout.
  3. It helps cut back on repetitive stress and strain that can lead to injuries.
  4. It’s good for your mind. It gives it a chance to focus on other things and take a break from working out, too!


The importance of downtime is often overlooked but it’s ESSENTIAL in helping you get the results you are working so hard for!


Research points to taking at least one day off every 7-10 days.

TIP: Before you start stacking up a bunch of rest days though, make sure you have something to rest from! 😉


Also important: if you’re new to working out or coming back after a layoff, our personal trainers want you to remember that you might need more recovery time until your body has time to adjust.


Some things you can do on a rest day:

  • If you’re not feeling physically tired or sore, take an “active recovery day.” Do something active (but less intense than your workouts) like golfing, hiking, going to the beach, etc.

  • Work on a hobby

  • Go for a walk with family or friends 

  • Catch up on the latest show everyone’s streaming


It’s all about finding a balance that works for you AND your goals!
