Benefits of Flexibility Training

Flexibility is one of the most overlooked Components of Fitness among both the athletic and non-athletic populations. For the non-athletic, lack of flexibility and a functional range of motion (ROM) around a joint can cause pain and discomfort.

This complaint is usually addressed clinically with a systematic formula consistent of NSAIDs and rest, with an unspecific justification coming from physician and goes like: "You could be starting a Tendonitis!" – But what is Tendonitis anyway?

Mayo Clinic Researchers New Announcement: Lack of Exercise should be treated as a medical condition by Doctors

This is a huge building block in the bridge we fitness professionals need to build to the medical community. In the U.S.A., we now have exceeded $3 Trillion a year in medical and health-care costs. We know that 80%-90% of those costs are a direct result of the lifestyle choices of American's. We know that providing Personal Training services that would train, educate and teach every man, woman, and child in the U.S.A. to begin a healthy eating and health exercise program, would not only reduce the cost of medical care, but dramatically improve longevity, health and happiness of our
