Why is it important to Stretch?
We can not emphasize enough how important it is to stretch all your muscle groups on a daily basis.

We all seem to be focused on cardiovascular workouts and strength training – which is great! However, when it comes to stretching there are very few who understand the importance of keeping their muscles healthy.

Muscles, like other tissues in our body, need to be well circulated and healthy. We spend most of our day in the same posture. By not stretching, we continue to overuse and fatigue our muscles, making them short and tight. In return, we form adhesions and connective tissue that is not needed, decrease circulation, decrease flexibility, increase the risk of tendonitis, increase aches and pain.

-To reduce muscle tension
