Friday Fitness with 3M Futuro
How is everyone going with our #noaddedsugar and #julysquats challenge so far? Day 4, any temptations? I am all good and so glad I have recommitted and keeping to my normal fitness routine and working out every second day. However I have been struggling with my left wrist especially when doing my push ups, burpees and planks. As you know I am following the amazing Freeletics program in addition to our July squats challenge so it's very important for me to take care of my body when I notice any pain or discomfort.
Thankfully the amazing 3M Futuro team sent me various wrist supports to help me workout in ease. My favourite one would be the reversible splint wrist brace (I remove the splint when I work out and place it back to stabilize and support my wrist throughout the day). Nothing feels worse than being in pain, so these are fab for our #teamdani and #fitfam to live a more full and active life with the proper therapeutic support.
They have so many options to choose from, I had to recommend the Futuro Therapeutic Range by 3M to my girlfriend Anita (who you all remember from the Hamilton triathlon last year and our mystery Freeletics Transformation Athlete who could no longer complete the program due to her ankle). She suffers severely from Plantar Fasciitis which is why I want her to try out this amazing support range.

What is Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar Fasciitis is often associated with long periods of weight bearing, resulting in a sharp pain in the heel prevalent in the morning or after long periods of rest. A sleep support holds the foot in the recommended flexion position during the night and eliminate the stress in the tendons, resulting in a more restful sleep. Unlike more traditional braces, the Futuro™ Night Plantar Fasciitis Sleep Support has a slim design and is made with breathable materials, ensuring it's effective yet comfortable.
Did you know?
3% of women and 2% of men will be diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome during their lifetime. Symptoms include numbness, tingling or burning sensations in the thumb and fingers commonly caused by repeated pressure on the wrist. Wearing a brace specifically designed to help alleviate the pressure on the wrist is key, particularly at night when the condition can often be worse.
Futuro™ Night Plantar Fasciitis Sleep Support and Futuro™ Night Wrist Sleep Support is priced at $54.95 (RRP) and $69.95 (RRP) respectively and available from leading pharmacies across Australia. For more information about Futuro™, please visit www.futurobrand.com.au
