How we work
The StretchFit Approach
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.
