Did you watch any of the Olympic Women’s Beach Volleyball last summer?    If so, you couldn’t help but notice the fluorescent shoulder taping of American Gold Medalist Misty May-Treanor.  What was that all about? 

Misty was using the latest product available to athletes for injury prevention and/or rehab – Kinesiology Tape.  Designed for sore muscles, joints and tendons – Kinesiology Tape offers targeted pain relief and support.  This product has taken off so much that it is now available directly to consumers without needing to go through a physical therapist.  BGI Fitness is proud to announce that we now carry KT Tape

KT Tape comes in easy-to-apply, pre-cut strips.  These strips will stay in place for up to three days, replete with multiple workouts, showers and even swimming in the pool.  The best part is the informative website for KT Tape.    Just click on your injured body part, and the video link will provide clear, step-by-step instruction in the proper placement of your tape. For example, this link shows a possible placement for a hamstring injury.

Here is a link to a KT Tape application for a Hamstring injury.

 You will quickly come to understand the motto of this exciting new product……
