Recharge & Recover After Fit Night Out: What You Need to Know

by | Aug 5, 2023 | WH Promotion & Events

After a night of hard-earned workouts (or after a day of running a marathon or cycling long-distance), recovery is paramount. When we exercise, new muscle tears are acquired that work to build up more, burning fat in the process. But rest and recovery are important to allow that process to play out. Your go-to? These tips on how to recover after Fit Night Out will help you on the way to feeling less sore again.

Take a nap 

You’ve heard the adage ‘sleep is the best medicine’ and when it comes to recovery after Fit Night Out, this rings true. “Sleep gives your muscles time to recover,” says FNO trainer, group fitness instructor and PUMA ambassador Jessica Naylor. Plus, research shows that a lack of sleep can impair muscle recovery by impacting the hormones involved in muscle repair and recovery.
