NIMBL Percussion

RECOVER BETTER. MOVE BETTER.

We want you to have a long, active lifespan, and a key to being active for life is proper recovery. We have partnered with NIMBL to bring two percussion therapy tools and three guided sessions to MOSSA On Demand. These sessions, Pre-Workout, Post-Workout, and Trouble Spots, ensure you gain maximum benefit from this recovery method, resulting in better results from your MOSSA workouts.

WHY PERCUSSION THERAPY?

Fitness fads come and go quickly, like fashion and food. But every now and then, a true innovation rightfully secures itself in the industry’s future. Percussion therapy has been around literally for centuries, but portable, affordable percussion therapy guns arrived in mainstream fitness just a few years ago. With a firm background in science, and a promise of making lasting movers out of us, percussion devices are an ideal recovery tool for athletes and movers at all levels.

We are excited to add NIMBL’s products and expertise to our ‘work-ins’ available on MOSSA On Demand. In three guided sessions, we’ll walk you through how to use your NIMBL device, how to prepare your body for your next workout, how to maximize your recovery using percussion therapy, and how to tackle trouble spots to help you undo some of the rigors of your workouts and everyday physical stress.

THE CHALLENGE FOR MOST PEOPLE IS NOT OVERTRAINING, BUT UNDER RECOVERING.

WHAT IS PERCUSSION THERAPY?

NIMBL

HOW DOES PERCUSSION THERAPY WORK?

Our bodies respond to percussion, or vibration, starting at a very basic level. Basically, our brains perceive vibration as a stress that needs to be mitigated. When the brain perceives percussion, our body naturally activates tissue to protect the internal organs, spine, and brain. This enhances muscle activity and minimizes the potential for injury. These contractions can also improve strength and power.

WHY PERCUSSION THERAPY?

Recovery and preparation are as important as exercise and movement. We call these ”work-ins,” the physiological opposite of workout, intended to combat the rigors and physical stresses of training. Percussion therapy is an ideal work-in, because it improves blood flow, mobility, muscle strength and power development, while reducing muscle tension and soreness.

WHEN SHOULD YOU USE PERCUSSION THERAPY?

Science supports percussion therapy being used in all phases of a workout, before, during, and after. It’s shown to improve blood flow, increase muscle temperature, and act as a neural prime to prepare the body for movement, as well as improve mobility and range of motion. Percussion therapy can also break up fibrous tissues that cause “trouble spots” or “knots.”

WHY PARTNER WITH NIMBL?

While you can find percussion therapy tools at many retailers, we are excited to partner with NIMBL because, in addition to offering world class products (more on that below), they’re big believers in delivering the who, what, how, where, when, and why, so users can reap and understand the benefits of percussion therapy.

WHY NIMBL PERCUSSION?

Here are a few reasons why we love the NIMBL Percussion Massage guns.

Sound

NIMBLs are ultra-quiet, versus noisy competitors. A loud device is not only annoying (you can’t hear your TV, children, or doorbell over the sound), but noise “pollution” creates mental and physical stress, which is exactly the opposite of what you’re trying to accomplish.

Options

NIMBL’s multiple vibration speeds elicit different tissue responses, meaning you can find the ideal speed for muscle activation, movement preparation, and trigger point attention. Likewise, NIMBL has unique attachments, so you have the tools for any job.

Ease

NIMBLs feel good, are user-friendly and ergonomic, and are super light and portable.

Personally, I love my NIMBL because of its superior features and having the guided sessions eliminates the guess work to ensure I really benefit from percussion therapy. We feel our NIMBL partnership will benefit instructors who teach our programs and those who participate in them!

RECOVER BETTER. MOVE BETTER.

The NIMBL Percussion Therapy sessions are part of MOSSA’s goal to improve your Movement Health – to keep you moving for life, improve your “active-life” expectancy, and ensure you feel great in your body. To improve Movement Health, our workouts and work-ins, a term coined by our friends at the Institute of Motion (IoM), are essential. Our work-ins, which include NIMBL Percussion and De-Desk Your Body sessions, facilitate recovery by reversing some of the mechanical and metabolic stresses to the body that take place during a workout and from sitting too long.

NIMBL PERCUSSION THERAPY FAQ

WHY NIMBL PERCUSSION SESSIONS?

Our mission is to inspire people to move and to help people feel better in their bodies. And you may be surprised to hear us say: exercise isn’t enough. Our bodies need preparation and recovery, and the science behind percussion therapy makes it ideal for pre- and post-workout, and to work through trouble spots. But just selling you a percussion gun isn’t our style, in terms of education and accountability, so we worked with our partners at NIMBL to create these sessions.

WHAT IS A “WORK-IN”?

A work-in is a term introduced to us by our friends at the Institute of Motion (IoM). A workout is designed to put mechanical and metabolic stress on the body, generally in the form of some kind of strength training or cardio training. A “work-in” is the opposite of a workout and is designed to aid in recovery, regulate the autonomic nervous system, and combat the rigors of training and everyday stress.

HOW MANY VIDEOS ARE IN THE NIMBL PERCUSSION THERAPY SESSIONS?

We have created three guided sessions – a NIMBL Pre-Workout session, a Post-Workout Session, and a Trouble Spots session.

WHERE CAN I PURCHASE A NIMBL PERCUSSION THERAPY GUN?

The NIMBL Percussion Massage Guns can be purchased from the MOSSA Store. We have the larger NIMBL XLR8 and the smaller NIMBL XPRS models available.

HOW LONG IS EACH NIMBL PERCUSSION THERAPY SESSION?

Each guided session is five to ten minutes long. Once you learn some of the pre-workout, post-workout, and trouble spot techniques, you can choose to follow the video step by step, or grab your NIMBL and use it whenever you have time.

WHERE CAN I DO THESE SESSIONS?

We designed these sessions to be done anywhere you can safely sit or stand.

WHERE CAN I TRY THESE SESSIONS?

The NIMBL Percussion Therapy sessions are available on MOSSA On Demand. If you are not already a subscriber, you can start a 14-day free trial and have access to over 200 workouts, education videos, and these NIMBL work-ins. If you decide to keep your subscription after the 14-day free trial, it’s only $9.99 per month (or $99.99 per year).
