Using RockTape for Orangetheory and High Intensity Interval Training

Over the last few years, Orangetheory Fitness (OTF) has been making big waves in class-based high intensity interval training (HIIT). OTF’s workouts last about an hour and they’re pre-programmed for members, so all you have to do it show up and sweat! OTF’s edge is the reliance on heart rate monitors for each athlete during the workout. Most people overdo their effort compared to what their HR guidelines are, so monitoring heart rate is a smart way for OTF to scale the workout to each individual in the class while also giving them technology-based feedback at the end of every class. read more…

How RockTape Can Support Good Posture


Did you know faulty posture is associated with ill health?

Studies show that correct posture increases physical attractiveness, confidence and internal positivity. Slouching can add strain to muscles and put stress on the spine. This can change the anatomical characteristics of the spine, leading to constricted blood vessels and nerves, as well as problems with muscles, discs, and joints. Good posture is critical to reducing back and neck pain.

Kinesiology tape can make a huge impact on your form. RockTape can cue your posture around the clock. How? After securing your ideal body position with RockTape, you’ll experience continued feedback for as long as the tape is applied. If you begin to deviate from your ideal posture, your brain will feel the pull of the tape and cue your body to return your desired position.

Now you know! 😁
