Get Stretchy in 2019 + 8 Stretches for Any Athlete Type to Improve Health and Mobility

Do you stretch?

I used to think stretching was just something I had to do while at gymnastics or before track practice and I absolutely hated it. Mostly because it was painful, in an obvious way, but I also thought it was lame and not necessary.

This year, my beautiful grandmother, AKA Nanny, turned 80, and she’s still as vibrant and healthy as she was as far back as I can remember.

It occurred to me that I am so lucky to have 80 years of wisdom to learn from, so I took advantage and put together a compilation of Nanny’s best tips on living a full, healthy life in this crazy world.

The most amazing thing about this woman is her openness to continue to learn and grow as a person, as a mother, a sister, a grandmother, a great grandmother, and even, get this, a fiancé!
