Resistance Flexibility Workshop

There comes a time when all athletes develop stiffness, tightness, or injuries. This is especially common among athletes who specialize- as repetitive movements can create imbalances and areas of tightness or inflammation pull the body out of alignment. Eventually this can lead to overuse injuries that can sidetrack your progress, or worse, sideline you completely. A comprehensive stretching program can be an asset to any athlete's training program by helping to prevent injury and diversifying the workload on the muscles.
