Stretching comes naturally to all of us. You might notice that if you have been sitting in a particular position for a long time, you stretch unconsciously. It feels good! In addition to that good feeling, a consistent stretching program will produce large gains in flexibility and joint movement.

Everyone should stretch, regardless of age, gender, or flexibility level. Stretching should be a part of your daily routine, whether you exercise or not. 

A regular stretching program can help you to maintain your range of motion and make daily living activities easier.

Stretching does not demand a huge time commitment, but it can give you huge results! Here are some of the benefits you can expect from a regular stretching program:

  • Reduced muscle tension
  • Increased range of movement in the joints
  • Enhanced muscular coordination
  • Increased circulation to various parts of the body
  • Increased energy levels (resulting from increased circulation)
  • Delayed onset of muscle fatigue
  • Enhanced performance in daily life, sports, or other physical activity
  • Improved posture
  • Mental relaxation
  • Added variety, enjoyment, and satisfaction to your exercise program
