Mobility/Flexibility- What the two terms mean and how Burnin’ By Ray will get you on the path to optimal wellness!

Mobility is the ability to move or be moved freely and easily. Flexibility is the ability of your soft issues (muscles) to stretch. Mobility contributes to movement with full range of motion, including restricted muscle tissue, joints, the joint capsules, motor control, and your soft tissue.  At BBR, we want to make sure you are moving efficiently and to your most potential, that is why we’ve added mobility to the first block of our workout!
