Stretch & Flex

Stretching is an easy way to improve your health, yet it's often the most neglected part of people's fitness regimes.  Stretching can reduce your injury risk and help you become more limber, regardless of your age and physical condition.

In its most basic form, stretching is a natural and automatic action.  People often stretch instinctively after waking form sleep or after long periods of inactivity.

While the benefits of daily exercise are numerous and well known, the benefits of a regular stretching routine are far less emphasized but just as important.  Incorporating stretching into your daily workouts or  into your regular day is just as important to health and body functioning as regular exercise.

The benefits of stretching include:

  • Relief from pain

  • Increased energy levels

  • Increased flexibility

  • Better range of motion

  • Improved blood circulation

  • Relaxation and stress relief

  • Enhanced coordination

  • Improved posture

  • A greater sense of well-being
