Whether you spend all day on your feet or sat behind a desk, stretching is vital to keep your body happy and healthy.

Stretching might not always be the most exciting part of a workout, but working on your flexibility is just as important as strength training or cardio. Tight muscles can cause undue strain on the neighbouring joints, even during normal day functioning, and this can lead to chronic injuries. Engaging in calming low intensity activities like stretching is not only good for your body, but it can be great for your mental wellbeing too.

Why not start your day with 10 minute stretching routine to wake yourself up? Or engage in an evening session before bed to get you feeling relaxed and ready for a good quality sleep?
