Portland Personal Trainer | Stretching | Portland Oregon

The most neglected part of a workout is what you ask? Stretching.  People often overlook it and skip on it more times than not.  It it often viewed as an uneccessarily part of the equation and left behind.

As Portland personal trainers, we know the benefits, and importance of stretching and the great things it can do for your body. Not only does it help you cool down and return your heart beat to a normal rate, but it also brings your muscles back to the length they started at.  This help prevent muscle strain and muscle pulls.

One of my clients swears by stretching, so much that she takes part in it any chance she can get.  And guess what? She’s never had a single injury in her life.  Stretching may seem like a useless thing because we’re not sweating, our hearts aren’t racing, and we don’t feel like we’re doing work.  We have to remember that stretching is so valuable, and it’s what allows us to continue pushing and challenging our bodies in our workouts to come.

Next time you finish a workout and think about heading straight for home, rethink your decision.  Think how much better you’ll feel after you stretch your body while also improving your flexibility.
