Flexibility

As children we all have a greater range of movement than as adults. This is not due to age but to a reduction in activity as we get older. Girls are more flexible than boys, not due to genetics but down to the fact that boys tend to enjoy playing football whereas girls dance and do gymnastics.

It can take years to regain full flexibility. However this does not mean that it is too late to start.

By stretching before and after exercise you can increase your mobility. This not only increases your range of movement but also enables you to increase your power and fitness levels.

I will show you the correct stretching techniques for your goals. Also I can show you developmental and P.N.F. (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation) stretching to further increase your range.
