Stretching specialists for posture and pain, wellbeing, sports performance and recovery
Why StretchFit? After many years of searching for a place to stretch without any associated dogma, Anthony realized he was going to have to create this place himself. StretchFit is the result! A stretch gym devoted entirely to your flexibility needs. There’s no chanting and the purpose-built equipment makes stretching safe, simple and affordable for everyone and every body. (Just like a regular gym) For chronic pain, wellbeing, performance enhancement and longevity there’s nothing better than a good stretch in our relaxing studios!
We say that “while cardio and weights might keep you alive, stretching will make it worth being alive!”
Anyone who has studied medical science knows that muscles are found in compartments, or bundles. A well-known example is the hamstrings, a bundle of 4 muscles found at the back of the thigh. Our approach is to isolate each of the bodies compartments and stretch them methodically. (Just like a regular gym!) It is anatomically based, precise, and no one is left guessing “am I doing it right!?”
At StretchFit we also hold stretches for 2 to 3 minutes. Research shows that this is the minimum period of time needed for long lasting biological adaptation.
StretchFit uses a method called PNF or contract/relax stretching. Its use is common in physiotherapy and osteopathy. Although it sounds complex, its simple to perform and vastly accelerates the acquisition of flexibility.
"From my mid-teens through my 20s, tight hips and back pain was the story of my life. After injury, surgery, injury...I found StretchFit and my life transformed. I've been able to live pain-free and have a body that feels the best it ever has!"
