The programs in the Sweat app are not customised to accommodate injuries or health concerns that could be aggravated by low, moderate or high-intensity physical exercise. Your health and wellbeing is our highest priority and we would hate for you to feel any further discomfort or potentially prolong your recovery.
For this reason, if you have a pre-existing injury, we recommend that you seek clearance from a healthcare professional prior to beginning any new exercise program.
If you have been cleared by your doctor or allied healthcare professional to resume exercise during your recovery, our team are more than happy to help provide exercise alternatives that align with your recovery recommendations. These suggestions can assist you with returning to exercise in a safe and suitable way.
Coming back to your regular training after recovering from an injury can be a lengthy and difficult process, so it is important that you listen to your body and slowly ease into a routine that is in line with your current stage of rehabilitation. Maintaining correct posture and technique at all times can also help to reduce the risk of further injury.
If you feel any discomfort or pain, particularly when completing exercises you would normally do comfortably, stop your training immediately and seek further advice from your healthcare professional.
As frustrating as injuries can be, being aware of your limitations and focusing on rehabilitation can sometimes be exactly what your body needs to get back to training at your best. Remember, Rest days are just as important as your active days, so don’t feel guilty about taking them too!
