Flexibility refers to the the ability to move joints or muscles through their full-range of motion.

Flexibility may also be specific to the joint or individual, allowing some people’s joints to naturally surpass the range of motion in the same joint in another person. Flexibility is one of the five components of physical fitness. Several factors that influence person's flexibilty include genetics, connective tissue elasticity, composition of tendons or skin surrounding the joint

* Genetics
* Connective tissue elasticity
* Composition of tendons or skin surrounding the joint, age, gender, joint structure, strength of opposing muscle groups, body composition/type, activity level, and previous injuries or existing medical issues
