- sports coaches and fitness instructors who are seeking a thorough understanding of the principles and practice of this often neglected component of physical fitness
- sport and exercise therapists who use stretching as an important part of a balanced rehabilitation programme
A reasonable level of flexibility is essential to the healthy functioning of joints and muscles, which in turn facilitates performance and reduces the risk of injury.

Full colour photographs demonstrate the stretches throughout.
