How important is a good warm up?

World class athletes do it, Top fitness trainers do it, we teach our children to do it before each hockey game, soccer match or dance lesson. So, why is it when it comes to our own fitness regime we tend to skip it, or don’t hold it to the same importance as our actual workout? What is it that these top athletes and young inspiring athletes do? A good intense warm up. Not only is a good warm up essential to prepping our body to take on a challenging class or workout, but it also helps to reduce the chance of injuries and increases our ability to burn extra calories. These extra calories, I like to refer to as the hidden calories. At first, the calories consumed during a good warm up might seem to be insignificant, but over time they can add up to be quite a difference maker that a lot of us overlook. Having a good warm up is one of the most important things you can do to ensure that you get the most out of your workout.
