I stretch of I'm at yoga class. It's really nice to have that extra encouragement to slow the hack down and just be.

I do. I don't feel like I've "completed" my workout if I don't.

I always warm up before, and cool down after any workout.

Im in the same boat as Alan..cant get moving unless i start some stretches and warmup.  i guess a warm up before(with some stretches of relevant muscles if ur gonna lift weights) and about 5-7 mins of post workout stretches seems a decent way to go...
