Fitness Find: Stiff and Sore No More

What: Post-workout soothing cream from Kathleen Lewis

Why: There are two levels of post-workout soreness. There’s the slow stretch when you wake up the next morning with a little bit of tightness where you say to yourself, “Wow, that was a great workout. I’m a rock star.”

And then, there’s the other kind, like that first big workout after your New Year’s Resolution to loose the holiday weight. In this scenario, you wake up, realize you can’t lift your arms over your head because they are so tight and say you yourself, “Wow, that was an intense workout. I’m an idiot.”

In both of these cases, you can decrease your muscle soreness with the use of Kathleen Lewis’ Stiff & Sore Muscle Massage crème, which you can apply both pre- and post-workout. Developed for her Ironman husband and his friends who complained of soreness, Kathleen Lewis credits it personally to helping her get through a recent marathon.

I tried it out myself after a triathlon and was pleased at the invigorating scent, thanks to the peppermint and tea tree essential oils, which are known to help with inflammation. My muscles felt better than normal the next day, a definite step in the right direction of getting back into the action sooner rather than later.

Price: $25
