An innovative new wellness service is making its debut in St. Pete this weekend. StretchLab officially opened this Thursday, May 25, at 1760 4th Street North, complete with a massive grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting with Mayor Ken Welch.
The concept provides one-on-one assisted stretching sessions with one of StretchLab’s certified Flexologists™ a guided push-and-release experience. After a 3D body scan, first-timers will discuss their current flexibility, their level of activity and any injuries with the Flexologist™, who will then curate a personalized stretching experience in either 25 or 50-minute sessions. Appointments and more information can be found here.
StretchLab is celebrating the grand opening by offering free 15 minute one-on-one custom demo stretches Thursday through Saturday. We stopped in to give a it try Thursday morning and came away highly impressed, particularly by their MAPS 3D body scanning technology (more on that shortly).
One of the many great parts of StretchLab is that their customized stretching allows them to service a wide variety of audiences. Many clients want to improve their sports performance, while many others want to decrease joint pain or recover from an injury. Plenty more come in just looking to improve their overall flexibility.
StretchLab works with anyone, no matter their reason for walking in the door, and the benefits of stretching can be life-changing, as it helps increase range of motion, reduce stress, improve posture, reduce muscle and joint pain, and improve sports performance.
The unique wellness concept was founded to help bodies of all types and builds by identifying tightness and imbalances in the body and customizing a stretch routine that is built specifically for each individual. Their proprietary MAPS tech is one of the big things that makes them stand out. Using 3D body scanning, it measures a person’s Mobility, muscle Activation, Posture and Symmetry, which allows the Flexologist to customize a stretching program, focus on problem areas, and track progress.
Each Flexologist™ has been extensively trained in StretchLab’s proprietary and Nationally Accredited Flexologist™ Training Program which includes classroom and hands-on training. From that training, they employ the Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation method, which is a combination of static and dynamic stretching that includes regular muscle contraction. This approach is particularly beneficial in increasing range of motion and getting maximum benefits.
Founded in 2015, StretchLab is the largest assisted stretching brand globally with over 400 locations. StretchLab is headquartered in Irvine, CA and backed by Xponential Fitness, the largest franchisor of boutique fitness brands.
