As fitness professionals, we often struggle to take our own advice, to slow down, listen to our body, and admit that we aren’t invincible. But injuries happen, even to us, and when we can’t do what we love it can feel like a real setback. Today, AFAA Master Instructor Angie Miller, shares three ways we can learn and grow when we’re injured, and how we can use what we learn to help the people we work with. Humility, patience, and perspective can shift our focus from the injury to a positive recovery.
