May 15, 2013: Dynamic Warm-up vs. Traditional Stretching
By Dr. W. Kevin Davis, 6-7 p.m.
Did you know that traditional stretching actually reduces your body’s effectiveness to perform? Join us for an introduction to dynamic stretching, or “movement prep.” It’s is a method so dynamic it will not only change your attitude about stretching, but will help take your activity to the next level. Learn how your body warms up, how your core strengthens and how your nervous system improves to allow your body to function more efficiently. Who knew reducing injuries could be fun and take only 6 to 8 minutes? What a great value for very little time. Participants will also learn the many health benefits of dynamic stretching in addition to learning how to lead a more enjoyable and active life. Cost is $8 for members or $12 for guests; or use your fitness pass to attend. Questions? Call Trout Creek Recreation Center at 530-587-9437.
