Good ouch or bad ouch?

Good ouch or bad ouch?

When you are just getting started with a fitness program, how do you know what is "good" pain or "bad" pain? How do you know if you should push through it, or stop?  We believe that pain is your body giving you valuable information. We aim to help our clients learn to interpret this information, and begin to differentiate between "bad" pain--your body signaling that something is in fact wrong-- and "good pain" or what we like to call "productive discomfort."  Here are some some questions to run through when you feel pain during a workout that will help you determine if what you are feeling is PRODUCTIVE or DESTRUCTIVE.
