The Importance of Flexibility Training

For many of your clients, their fitness goals extend well beyond simply losing weight. Often, they also want to feel better, too. Of course, increased stamina and strength can play an instrumental role in improving overall health and well-being. However, it is also important to include flexibility training as part of any regular fitness routine. Flexibility training offers its own unique range of benefits, while also supporting a healthier and more active lifestyle. Here are just a few of the ways that flexibility training can benefit your clients:

Better Performance felxibility_training

From everyday activities to intense exercise, flexibility training can help your clients boost their performance. As their joint comfort and mobility increases, they may find that performing many activities becomes much easier than before. With a less-restricted range of motion, your clients will be able to take their fitness and everyday routines to the next level. Whether your clients want to improve their golf swing or simply have an easier time gardening, flexibility training can help.

 

Safer Workouts

Improved flexibility does more than improve performance. A greater range of motion can actually lower the risk of injury to muscles and joints. More range of motion means your clients are less likely to strain themselves during their workout routine.

 

Improved Posture

Regular flexibility training has a positive impact on your clients’ posture. Tense or tight muscles can affect spine alignment, which can lead to poor posture. By stretching key muscles in the back, chest, and shoulders, your clients can keep their back in better alignment. Better alignment can lead to improved posture.

 

Stretching exercises were once thought of as a pre-workout routine, but it is no longer recommended to stretch before exercise. Rather, your clients should do a light warm-up before beginning their stretching routine. A warm-up such as walking or jumping rope will prepare your clients’ muscles for stretches. A stretching routine should involve smooth, fluid movement that feels like a gentle pull. Stretching should never be painful, so remind your clients to take it easy!

 

For additional joint health support, your clients may want to consider adding a supplement containing UC-II®. Just 40 mg once-a-day offers them the convenience and efficacy they need from a dietary supplement. Recent research even suggests that UC-II® is significantly better than glucosamine and chondroitin. You can find out more about UC-II® by visiting our website, or by speaking with one of our knowledgeable representatives at 1-800-783-4636.
