Got Training Pains? I Have A #Giveaway For That!

No matter what kind of training or workout you do, one thing we all have in common is post workout muscle soreness.

I even get some minor bruising on certain training days. With my upcoming move, this month has been rough on my body to say the least! I have been pretty sore every morning. Foam rolling and stretching help some. I was actually contacted by a company called Zim’s.  They specialize in Naturally based products formulated with herbal ingredients. Products like pain relief, skin care, lip care, diabetic living and first aid.

When asked to review their new pain relieving gel Zim’s Arnica Max I jumped at the opportunity. I have used several different types of pain relieving gels and creams. Biggest thing I look for in products like this are: Effectiveness, Smell, and how it absorbs into the skin.


Arnica Max is a colorless gel. It absorbs quickly into the skin. It is light weight and does not feel greasy. This is important to me. I hate when a product is greasy, because it usually stains my clothes, sheets, etc. If it is not quick absorbing I have to wait to get dressed, lol another pet peeve.


The smell is light and goes away quickly! This is HUGE!!!! No matter what time of day, no one wants to smell bad or overpowering. I can apply this product before bed and not offend my husband ha ha. I can also apply it right before the gym and not worry about stinking out the people training in close proximity 😉 Nobody wants to be “That” person at the gym.


I was actually greatly surprised by the effectiveness. My back training is brutal. I am typically pretty sore for at least 3 days. This past Monday I PR’ed on my deadlift. I was able to pull 205lbs for 3 reps on my 5th working set. To boot, had awesome form and my back did not roll! I was stoked to say the least. Although I was excited to finally get past the 200lb mark, I knew this was going to come with a painful consequence. I woke up yesterday sore as all get out! My lower back, hamstrings and glutes definitely were tight and painful. Rubbed down with Arnica Max and within minutes was ready to go kill my training. I truly am impressed with the product! You can find Zim’s products just about anywhere: Walmart, Target, Walgreens,, etc
