personal training to improve mobility and flexibility

Are they the same thing? you see both terms batted about by fitness types all over the internet “improve your flexibility and mobility” but flexibility and mobility are actually different. 

So, what is the difference between mobility and flexibility? 

I will start with flexibility, which is the ability for a muscle to stretch when needed, as an example, your favourite pair of PJ’s or joggers, if the waistband is stretchy, it is flexible or it has seen better days and is no longer stretchy, or worse case it snaps, then it is inflexible, the same can happen with muscles. Therefore, flexibility is important, to help keep your muscles supple and help from sustaining injuries. 
Yes, we all know that we should exercise, regardless of our mental health and wellbeing as getting fit and being active is good for our physical health. 

But what if you are struggling with your mental health? 

Anxiety, stress and depression effect everyone differently and to various degrees. It can stop you from wanting to go out and especially be around people, so this can then reduce the options of exercising greatly. Even if you know you will feel better after exercising, if your anxiety levels increase at the thought of going to the gym, going to an exercise class or just going for a walk, then let’s face it, you’re not going.
