Do I have to be a personal training client to attend?

Kinstretch

Kinstretch is a movement enhancement system designed to improve usable ranges of motion, strengthen said ranges, improve body awareness and thus improve overall function and performance.

What do I need for class?

Just bring yourself and wear comfortable workout clothes. We provide water, towels, mats and everything else you will need for class.

Will Kinstretch help me _______?

Yes. Kinstretch is designed to help each joint function better and stronger than ever. So wether you Olympic lift, do yoga, rock climb, play a sport or just want to be more fit, Kinstretch will help you function better and more efficiently on a daily basis.

What if I’m already flexible?

Flexibility is great! But Kinstretch focuses on “active” or “usable” ranges of motion. This means that not only can you get into a certain position (flexibility), you can also activate muscles and work out of that position (mobility). Being strong throughout your entire range of motion helps keep you injury free, and your joints happy and healthy.

What if I’m not flexible at all?

No problem! Our goal is to help you gain some flexibility back while simultaneously strengthening your newly acquired ranges of motion. If you can’t get into one of the positions during class we always have simple ways to modify that position you so you can still work on the same joint as everyone else in class.

What should I expect during class?

Expect to be challenged mentally and physically. You will be challenging your body to work and perform in positions that it probably isn’t used to being in. This not only creates strength and mobility, it also forces your brain and nervous system to learn how to fire and control muscles that it hasn’t used in a long time. While a lot of what we do may look easy, our use of isometric contractions will test not only your current muscle strength, but also your mental fortitude and measure how hard you are willing to push yourself.

What does a Kinstretch class look like?

Class starts with our CARs routine, which we use as a full body warmup and self-assessment tool. We typically set up like a yoga class, where everyone has a mat and enough space for them to move around comfortably. Throughout class we will work out of specific “base” positions, which we can accomplish a wide variety of movements and stretches out of. We use tennis balls and yoga blocks to assist some of our movements throughout the class as well.
