Exercise–It’s A Stretch!

Are you bent out of shape about exercising? 

Do you lack the motivation and energy to get off the couch and exercise?

I can’t tell you how many times in my life I have decided not to exercise because the thought of it was tiring and unappealing.  I still wanted the benefits of working out–the tight body, the glowing skin, the energy, the strength….but I didn’t want to do the work.

What was I to do?

Stretch!  You’ve got to start somewhere.  Stretching for even 10 minutes a day can do wonders for your body. 

Stretching:

– relieves stress

– enhances coordination

– prevents injury

– improves flexibility

– burn calories

– increases circulation in the blood

– increases energy levels

– increases range of movement in your joints

– reduces muscle tension

– sheds excess fat

These are only some of the amazing benefits of stretching!  Plus, you can stretch anytime, anywhere and it’s free!  It doesn’t get any better than that.
