Stretching is part of a balanced lifestyle and an important part of your work-out routine. After about 10 minutes of light activity, spend some time stretching. You should hold your stretch for about 20-30 seconds per muscle group. If you feel pain, you have gone too far. I recommended taking time to stretch about 3-4 times per week. If you have recently been injured, that particular area should be stretched every day. If you have health conditions or injuries, talk to your doctor or physical therapist about which stretches are right for you.
Stop injuries before they start!

I DON’T NEED A PERSONAL TRAINER!
There is a reason why even professional athletes still use personal trainers – everyone benefits from a trainer. “Knowing enough” to work out on your own is not enough or an excuse. People lose focus, motivation, and progress is slow.
A trainer will push you out of your comfort zone in a safe way. A trainer watches your form and motivates you to maximize results and minimize effort.
What you need to ask yourself is how best you could benefit from a personal trainer.

In 2009, years of putting everyone else first got me to being seriously overweight and out of shape. After several attempts on my own at dieting and exercising led to minor injuries, my chiropractor recommended that I work with a personal trainer, telling me that it wasn’t a question of whether I would become diabetic, but rather when I would become diabetic. I began working out with Lester in July 2009. He was able to tailor my workouts to avoid injury. Lester is kind and compassionate and really cares about his clients. He puts a lot of thought into planning workouts and motivates a non-athlete like me to keep moving, even eight years later.
I came to Lester Jiles about 9 years ago with a pulled neck and shoulder muscle. From the start, Lester was tentative to my issues. He encouraged and motivated me to work my total body by strengthening my weaken areas. I have never worked with a trainer before Lester and I guess I’m lucky to have gotten a phenomenal one first time out but I cannot express enough the full and complete benefit in muscle toning, weight loss, mental fitness and support I received from him. He brings his complete professional expertise to every session and focuses on the individual and their physical needs. I wish I had met him years prior as his influence and expertise has helped me both physically and mentally in who I am today.
I was initially hesitate to use a personal trainer, had gotten out of shape and nothing was working. Had a recommendation to work with Lester and he has helped me reach and maintain my fitness goals. Every workout is different which keeps me engaged, he targets various muscle groups, and has also made recommendations on simple rules or tips to follow in terms of nutrition. Lester knows how to push you past what you think is your limit and has showed me how much I could really achieve. It’s been nine years (and 45lbs later), and every workout is still a challenge.
As a physician and health coach, I have worked with a lot of people who want to incorporate exercise into their routine. However many people don’t know how to do it safely and effectively. I have taken classes with Les and his knowledge of body mechanics and movement patterns surpasses that of other trainers. He pays attention to details in physical form and knows how to make adjustments for people depending on their personal physical needs and their goals. If you are looking for someone to work with you and encourage you, while also helping prevent you from injury, I would highly recommend Les as your trainer.
