*NEW PROGRAM* Intro to Flexibility

What is flexibility? Isn’t it just another word for mobility? While a common misconception, flexibility and mobility are NOT the same thing. Flexibility is in fact one element of Mobility. While mobility focuses on the intentional movement of a joint through its full range of motion (with control), flexibility refers to a muscle’s ability to stretch beyond its normal resting state. Therefore, flexibility can certainly be said to be a prerequisite for good mobility.

In this program, we aim to improve our flexibility through the use of static stretching. Why? Muscles all have a set length, but for a myriad of reasons like injury or poor posture, they often lose the ability to stretch to full length. This program aims to take the first step toward improving joint mobility by ensuring that our muscles can stretch to their functional limits.
