Due to our western lifestyles, most people, as they age and do desk duty, start to lose basic mobility and range of motion in their joints.Gerard Iacullo's Profile Photo, Image may contain: 1 person, smiling This only gets worse as time goes on and I have come to the firm conclusion based on the research and my own observations that prioritizing a movement practice which seeks to recapture normal joint range of motion and flexibility is the cornerstone to any fitness program or physical life endeavor.

While traits like strength and endurance are very important attributes to acquire, optimal and usable range of motion in a persons joints trumps all.
