In order to avoid injury and perform at your peak it is important to begin each exercise period with a warm-up and stretching routine. A warm-up should last anywhere from 3-10 minutes. This will increase your body's core temperature, thus muscles and supporting tissues will be ready to perform the increasing demands of the workout.
It's an important component in our fitness program. Static stretches that help to increase flexibility are included in every class during the cool down segment. Also included are exercises created to maintain an increased overall range of motion.
