Planet Beach is continuing to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic with the rest of the world. Although the Planet Beach services that you’ve come to love have been temporarily suspended, the company continues to innovate to support their members from afar.

Planet Beach recently launched the “HOTWORX at Home” feature on the Planet Beach App, which gives members access to a variety of four HOTWORX sessions.  The at home feature allows members to incorporate physical activity in their daily lives which has been proven to reduce stress, tone the body and maintain weight loss.  A great complement to the HOTWORX at Home workout session is the HOTWORX Fascia Roller, which supports myofascial release.

“Myofascial tissue is a type of thin, strong, fibrous connective tissue that extends throughout the body to provide support and protection to your muscles and bones. Myofascial tissue fibers are made up of collagen and elastin fibers that are arranged in a web-like structure and that are suspended in a fluid called ground substance. It provides a strong support for the muscles, while at the same time allows for flexibility.  You can think of myofascial tissue as being similar to a mesh bag that contains your groceries. It is pliable, and can expand and contract as the contents of the bag change.  Healthy myofascial tissue is soft and relaxed, however, inflammation to the tissue can cause it to become tight and more rigid, and knots or adhesions can develop in the tissue that can cause a restriction in motion and lead to the development of “trigger points” that can cause pain anywhere in the body.”

The HOTWORX Fascia Roller provides the following benefits:

  • Restores and rehabilitates muscles pre and post exercise
  • Loosens tight muscles
  • Loosens pressure and trigger points
  • Relieves pain and soreness
  • Increases mobility

Visit to purchase your HOTWORX Fascia Roller. Use it before during, or after your HOTWORX at Home session or incorporate it into your personal fitness regime to sooth your muscles.  When using, apply enough pressure to initiate the myofascial release and accelerate muscle recovery.
