Do you have soreness and tightness after your workouts? Or do you experience aches and pains that keep you from doing the things you enjoy, such as exercising, sleeping, cooking, or baking?
In a world.....
In a world where so many people are conscience about how often they exercise, what diets they are participating in, and what's the latest fitness challenge, not too many people place attention to the area of recovery, or proactive injury prevention.
A common, but effective recovery and injury prevention tool is #STRETCHING.
"Yes," you read that right! #STRETCHING!
According to the Harvard Medical School, stretching keeps the muscles
You may ask yourself, "why are my muscles always feeling tight?" , or why can't I have that desired range of motion?
Simply-put it's the lack of stretching which overtime will increase your risk for joint pain, strains and muscle damage.
You're probably telling yourself--- "Great!" "I'm going to stretch every day now!"
But then that small little voice in your head says "Wait!"
I can't even touch my toes.
No worries--- Remember? Simon said to go*stretch or get stretched!
The act of getting stretched is formally called assisted stretching, and that's what go*stretch specializes in.
go*stretch is a 1 on 1 assisted stretching business that focuses on injury prevention, muscle and body recovery, and pure relaxation.
What's it like? "You ask!"
