Publisher's Summary

Are your muscles getting tense as you age? Is your range of motion more limited than it once was? Do you sometimes struggle with physical activity? Then Stretching for Seniors is for you.

As we get older, our muscles get tired, and we struggle to achieve the agility we once had. Luckily, there are solutions!

Stretching is important to keep our bodies functioning in optimal health, and the benefits are endless.

Properly stretching our bodies is even more critical in our older age, as our range of motion becomes restricted and our bodies become tight.

If you want to learn how to stretch your body to maintain your physical health, then you need the invaluable resources in this book.

A regular stretching routine helps keep our limbs loose, and our muscles relaxed so we can live fit, active lifestyles.

Achieving a limber, well-stretched body improves our posture, relieves aches and pains, prevents muscle and joint ailments, and enhances our mobility and physical fitness.

It can even help connect you to your body and enhance mental relaxation and focus.

You can achieve a pain-free, high-energy life with the ability to move and do as you please!

Very effective

I got this audiobook for my dad, and I also happened to listen to it along with him. I soon found myself getting into it too. My dad is very grateful for the audiobook as it has now become his daily routine. He is now better, full of energy and more mobile. Stretching for Seniors is a must-have for all ages.

Wonderful resource!

I loved this book :)

Great for grandma who is starting to see some pain in her knee joints when walking and occasional general back pain. The exercises are simple yet effective and they don't require too much fitness to do. It's pretty spot on!

The narration is also great quality which keeps the engagement throughout the book.

Really appreciated this book!

Great book!

My Mom loves this book! We both were shocked to know dozens of stretching available depending on your body's needs. The book was helpful as my Mom is suffering from stiff legs. I, myself, use this book too! As someone who is at a desk for most of the day, I start to feel the signs of back stiffness and rigidness. Highly recommended for all ages!

Very Helpful

I actually listened to this audiobook along with my mother who is in her 60s. She has suffered from back pain for a couple of months now and the stretching exercises suggested are very helpful. After doing several she felt a difference. We also enjoyed the illustrations in the book to give us a better idea how to do them properly. Very very useful resource for seniors.

Helpful Book

A very helpful book for seniors that goes through multiple key stretches that will improve quality of life, this book will help improve range of motion for people that suffer from being stiff and are in pain. I recommend this.

Needed for all!

I gifted this book to my mother-in-law who has been suffering from sciatica since an accident last year. This book has been an excellent resource for her to navigate stretching and mobility work at home. The book is excellently structured so you can skip to the stretches you need. I think one thing I found really interesting was the first chapter on what happens to the body when it ages - I learned a few things! My mother-in-law has really seen the benefit of listening to this audiobook and I can see she feels more confident with her self-care since listening to this.

Very Useful!

I had my parents listen to this audiobook and follow along. It was extremely useful. I'm not a senior yet, but I even got into it. I can see how improvements can come about in posture, joints and a healthy lifestyle overall!

Great for Seniors

I got this book to help my Grandma. She is getting older and really needs to continue to move and exercise, stretch, etc. The seated and standing stretches was my favorite part of the book. It was exactly what I needed to help her and provide her so options to work on!
