Molly Daley

This inaugural FitBit deals with one of the less glamourous aspects of fitness: Stretching.  Often forgotten or skipped over because of a time crunch, a good thorough stretch has a way of slipping out of our fitness routines. “Oh, well, 30 seconds is long enough”, “Stretching doesn’t make a difference anyway”, or “It doesn’t burn […]
