Robyn and Lara save the women of Front Range Boot Camp one body part at a time

I have come to the realization that Front Range Boot Camp is a training facility that specializes in safely accommodating women who have injuries and crabby body parts, and I am proud of that because there are so many of us! In order to provide you with the best service and education possible,  I have met with Lara Canham of Cascade Sports (who has been my physical therapist for 6 years) to create a series of workshops that will educate, and evaluate us, on the following topics:


Workshop Summaries:

“I Hurt!!”

What is pain? Why do I feel pain? Sometimes it’s really bad and sometimes I forget about it, what’s that about?  Why won’t it just go away?  Why don’t my medications and stretches seem to help?  I’ve tried resting and it still hurts!

Pain is a normal.  Every human feels it.  Without it, we wouldn’t be able to survive.

However, living in pain is not normal.  Injury and pain are not equal.  To overcome pain, we must educate ourselves, and that’s proven by the research.  Come learn about why you hurt (whether it’s been 2 days or 20 years) and what you can do about it.

To Exercise Smarter is to Modify

What’s that saying? “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

Just because you feel pain, doesn’t mean you always have to stop and rest, in fact sometimes that’s the worst thing you can do.  Your coaches modify your exercises but now learn what they are doing and why.  You too can take charge of your own health/body and modify things for yourselves, no matter the activity.

Here’s a blurb on Lara:

Lara Canham is a Colorado native with a lifelong passion for sports and fitness.  She attended the University of Notre Dame where she earned a Bachelors in Biological Sciences, and the University of Colorado for her Doctorate in Physical Therapy.  With a strong interest in teaching and academia, Lara is an instructor and admissions advisor for the University of Colorado Physical Therapy Program.  She also works at a Sports Medicine and Orthopedic clinic here in Arvada called Cascade Sports.  Her hobbies include: skiing, rock climbing, paddleboarding (just about anything outdoors), as well as painting and spending time with friends and family.
