Why stretching?

Flexibility is one of the main components of fitness.

When our bodies see the same movements every day, whether it be from prolonged sitting, technology usage or sports performance, our muscles tighten and create imbalances. Those tight muscles can easily become overstretched and damaged. To help prevent injuries, it is important to find a stretching routine that will fit your needs and lifestyle.

Assisted stretching helps your muscles move beyond their natural resistance point, allowing you to see quick results in a relaxing environment.

How often should I stretch?

Everyday. Well, that’s our opinion.

Actually, this depends a lot on your stretch goals. Stretching as few as three times a week can still result in mobility gains.  So, if you have a busy training schedule, daily stretching may not be possible or necessary.  A light, cool down stretch after your workout will help not only improve your performance by maintaining elasticity in your muscles, but feels GREAT!  What better way to improve your body than some partner PNF stretching with us?!

However, if you are looking to make some significant improvements, say to your posture, athletic performance, or have specific goals such as getting touchdown in your splits, we would recommend a higher frequency of stretching (6-7x a week).  However, this also doesn’t mean doing exactly the same stretches every day either! You can always discuss this more in-depth with your stretch Coach who will personalize your stretching program.
