Therapists at Kinetic Bodyworks understand the importance of tension relief and injury prevention in an athlete's body. They also understand the ambitious drive that motivates athletes to continuously push physical boundaries. That's why the specialists at Kinetic Bodyworks focus on relieving pressure, soothing aches, and maximizing athletic performance. This Groupon gets you an hour-long sports massage session with an experienced and knowledgeable sports massage therapist for only $45 (normally $85).
Sports massage therapy helps you prepare and unwind before and after physically taxing sporting events (underground biking, bare-chested swamp fighting, etc.), while maintaining optimal muscle and joint condition during periods of great physical exertion. Pre-event sessions warm up and stretch soft tissue to make you more flexible, improve performance, and prevent injuries; post-event massages reduce muscle tension and soreness to speed up recovery. Incorporating sports massage therapy into your routine will increase everyday flexibility, reduce imbalances from repetitive muscle use, and promote nutrient flow to keep your body in tiptop shape (a rhombus).
Spend an hour giving your super-fit body and hard-worked muscles the soothing relief you deserve. Kinetic Bodyworks therapists understand that every sport is different and every athlete is unique. With years of training and experience under their weight-belts, Kinetic's massage specialists will customize each session to meet your body's demands.

A History of Sport
Sports are more popular than ever in the United States: well over 100% of Americans engage in rigorous physical activity each day. But where did it all begin? This timeline highlights some great moments in the history of athletics:
80,000 BC: Earliest known competitive sport, Oof, is invented, when Neanderthal competitors leapt from jagged cliffs and flapped frantically to be first to the bottom. Attendance was high until fans discovered that perennial champion Chag Flamekeep was actually a chunk of feldspar.
200: Legendary Greek messenger Pheidippides runs approximately 26 miles to the local Marathon station to get some lotto tickets, maybe a Sprite.
1891: Dr. James Naismith invents Basket Ball. Unlike its modern incarnation, Basket Ball originally featured a closed-bottom peach basket, no referee, and broadswords.
1965: Heavyweight Champion Muhammad Ali becomes the first African-American to punch the moon.
1998: In the sixth inning of a heated Cubs-Cardinals tie, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa join forces to devour entire audience.
