Gas Station Stretches

A member asked if I might have any good stretches I do while “pumping petrol” … and it took me a full 27 seconds to figure out what she meant. Hehe! We call it “gas” around here, and that’s not the first time our forum has had some fun with the language differences we encounter […]

E/TS – Kids Bedtime Stretches

Partner with your child for some relaxing bedtime stretches - fit2b.com

This routine can be used with any willing partner. When my daughter went through a MAJOR growth spurt and started complaining of sore muscles, I did some research. I felt like I could see her body fold into itself – knees not wanting to straighten, shoulders rounding – as her bones literally grew faster than her muscles and […]

M/TS – Half-Round Foam Roll Workout

Half Dome workout with a half foam roll on Fit2B.com

I love this half-round of a foam roller – or “half dome” as I call it in the video – for so many reasons, not least of which is how I can lay it on the floor, and it’s like a magnet. It attracts people to it to play with it: kids will treat it like […]

E/TS – Shoulder Stretches

Beautiful Shoulder Stretching Routine - fit2b.com

K/TS – Kids Bedtime Routine

Kids Bedtime Routine - fit2b.com

Think about it: Even as grownups, we don’t just hop in bed, shut off the lights and fall asleep. We chat with our mate, read a book, maybe watch a short show, write in a journal, and take a while to get our own wiggles out. Children are no different, and actually they have so much […]

E/TS – Fingers & Toes

We spend a lot of time with our hands curled around devices and our feet shoved into socks and shoes. Yet, no muscle is an island. Everything that happens in the top of your body travels down. Everything that happens in the bottom of your body travels up. And sideways. And crossways. The tension in […]

E/TS – Scarf Down Some Stretches

Scarf down some stretches... with a scarf? -fit2b.com

On a colder day recently, I was watching Netflix and not feeling like “exercising.” However, I forced myself to just start by standing up and stretching a bit while I watched the show, and as I got warmer, I took off my scarf that I’d been wearing in our drafty farm house. Only I didn’t put […]
