Boot~ique with VIDEO: How to stretch after a workout

Stretching one of the most important things you can do for your body. It helps lengthen your body and limbs, maintain flexibility, increase joint mobility and stability.

You've probably always heard how important it is to stretch before you start any type of exercise, but did you know it is also important to stretch after you have worked out?

Post-workout stretching will help you maximize your workout, fitness level, and health. It is part of the "cool down" recovery process and will ensure your muscles don't freeze up after being over used.

As with any exercise, it is important to know the correct way to stretch, to avoid injury.

Follow along below with Fauntelle, one of our personal trainers, as she shows you how to stretch your major muscle groups after a workout.
