While pumping gas I saw a hanging poster that gave tips on stretching. While I thought this was an awesome idea, I also found it sad that as a culture we need our gas station to remind us that stretching is an important part of life. Other cultures know that stretching and flexibility keeps you young, limber, and active. As a fitness professional I give my clients tips on how to stay flexible. This prevents injury, enables them to have proper form during exercises, improves posture, lessens joint pain, and helps your body use the proper muscles to burn more calories.
Give us your input! Is stretching a part of your life??? If it is, tell our readers how it has impacted your life.
