Why Stretch*d?

Why stretch yourself,
when we can do it for you?!

STRETCH*D BENEFITS

Assisted stretching is the ultimate way to get a deep stretch, safely and effectively. Our expert Stretch*rs take you through a customized Stretch*d experience using dynamic stretch methods to gently build your flexibility and range of motion and all the while, chill you out.

WHO SHOULD GET STRETCH*D

Whether you sit front row at your spin class or at your desk clocking in overtime…getting Stretch*d is for you. Stretch*d is for every age, every lifestyle, and every body.

WHEN TO GET STRETCH*D

Anytime is good! Pre- or post-workout. When you need 25 minutes to yourself. On your recovery day. When you’re feeling stiff.

WHAT TO GET STRETCH*D

Hips, hammies, back, biceps, neck and shoulders… we’ve got you covered. Got a particular problem spot? Not a problem for us, we’ll focus on what ails you.

How long should I get Stretch*d for?

That depends on your schedule and your goals. Whether you can sneak us in between appointments or dedicate an hour to self-care…Stretch*d will be the highlight of your day. Tight on time? A 25-minute (Quick*e) session will offer you a comprehensive full body stretch in no time. In a 55-minute (Flex*d) session, no muscle will go unstretched, with plenty of time to spend on problem areas. And in a 75-minute (E*longated) session, you will get extra time to focus on those extra tight spots (and to really relax). PLUS… we take walk-ins! No appointment, no problem. We can fit you in for 15 minutes if that’s all you’ve got.

Are your Stretch*rs certified?

All Stretch*rs have bodywork expertise and are certified in our proprietary Stretch*d Method. They come from a variety of backgrounds, including personal training, massage therapy, yoga instruction and professional dance. They are then trained by our meticulous Chief Stretch*rs.

Should I get Stretch*d before or after a workout?

Both have their benefits! A pre-workout stretch warms up your muscles, can reduce risk of injury and boost your performance. A post-workout stretch speeds recovery by flushing out metabolic waste, increasing blood flow and lengthening muscles that have just been contracted. It’s also super relaxing.

Do I need to warm up beforehand?

Nope! The Stretch*d Method is an active, dynamic stretch which provides increased blood flow to the muscles, so no warm up necessary. Bonus: We do have a stretch area with foam rollers, a stall bar and other stretch aids to compliment your session for pre- or post-stretch use.

How early should I arrive?

All new clients should arrive 10 minutes prior to your first Stretch*d session to receive an introduction, fill out a waiver and intake form, change clothes (if need be) and speak with your Stretch*r about specific concerns.

What do I wear?

Wear comfortable clothing that you can move easily in, much like you’d wear to an exercise class (think loose fitting pants, leggings, a t-shirt). We also prefer that you wear socks. If you don’t have proper clothes with you, no worries, we have loaner t-shirts, sweats and socks that you can borrow for $3.
