We get it, morning and nights can be super busy. So on the off chance that you actually made it to that fitness class you signed up for you might be arriving late or leaving early.

The problem with this late arrival and early departure: you’re missing the warm-ups and cool downs! And while it doesn’t seem like a big deal to miss a couple of stretches Mindy Caplan, personal trainer and wellness coach says otherwise.

“Any time you’re contracting your muscles, you need to stretch,” says Caplan in an interview with Shape. Chances are if you made it to that fitness class in the first place, you can spare the extra five minutes.

And if the teacher does';t lead you through enough of a stretch, check out these best stretches for any fitness class.
