The Importance of Stretching

Stretching & Staying in Shape: Many of us push our bodies to their physical limit during the summer. Whether we’re working out in a gym or in the ocean (surfing, paddle boarding or playing beach volleyball), we often skip stretching, the most important part of pre and post-workouts. A few stretches after a paddle or run on the beach can prevent serious injuries. We’ll run you through five simple stretches that make you more resilient to injuries.

Running on the beach, surfing or paddle boarding the waves, biking on the sand or joining in a game of beach volleyball?  Fun in the sun may also mean you’re working some serious muscles – and even though it’s not a typical workout – post-workout stretching is still a must. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
