Real reasons why you must STRETCH? 
When you stretch, your muscle lengthens. Muscle lengthening provides greater range of motion (ROM), which is important to  individuals who have decreased ROM due to injury, a sedentary lifestyle or aging. Increased flexibility will also decrease our chances of injury and helps to enhance sports performance.

A well-stretched muscle helps you in the process of recovery after exercise, ridding you of excessive muscle soreness. It also decreases your risk of injury as your muscle and surrounding areas of the muscles become supple and flexible. 

MORE Benefits of Stretching
- increases flexibility
- for rehabilitation, - increases circulation - blood flow to the muscle increases after a long stretch - stimulates digestion,  - balances hormones - releases endorphins, brain chemicals i.e. "feel-good neurotransmitters."  - improves posture - calms the nervous system
- for good health
- for sports performance

TEN-3GEN at Toa Payoh Stadium

Written By: Shahrom Asmani (ex-football reporter for a few magazines and newspapers) 39-year old Football Crazy Person has been in love with football ever since he attended Singapore National Team’s matches at Kallang Stadium in the roaring 80’s. Has been a goalkeeper for a good part of the decade for a variety of teams but joined WaF4H last year because of the team’s mission and values.
WaF4H does not only allow participants to play football, holistically the team concentrates on various other aspects as well such as food, nutrition and personal well-being. Hopefully WaF4H can lengthen this writer’s career, be it in the football field or in the part-time writing arena as well.

TEN-3GEN at Toa Payoh Stadium
30th November 2019 marks another milestone in Walking Football for Health’s (WaF4H) remarkable young journey.
The date will forever be remembered as the day when Member of Parliament for Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC Mr Saktiandi Supaat officially launched TEN-3GEN at the Toa Payoh Stadium.
