Flexibility is one of the main aspects of fitness, but is often neglected. You should stretch after a brief aerobic warmup, then again at the end of your workout. Stretch to the point where you feel it but not to pain, and stretch the tight muscles, not just the easy ones. Participants in some activities like karate, gymnastics, dance, etc. need to work on flexibility even more than most people. You can improve your flexibility with home fitness equipment like stretching machines.
