The only competition you see is you. So set your own speed, and race yourself to the finish line.

Muscles need to stretch to be at their best whenever you workout. It increases blood flow and prevents injury. But what kind of stretch is best? In this class we explain the difference between dynamic stretching (where you move) and static stretching (where you stay still) debunking when, where and how to do both.

Discover the importance of taking care of your fascia – the tissue connecting muscle and bone. By learning self-massage with specially designed Trigger Point therapy rollers you free the fascia, eliminating tissue build up that makes muscles perform poorly, feel painful and recover slowly.

Safe stretching and self-massage increases your range of movement, improves blood flow, limits discomfort and reduces the risk of injury. 

Don’t worry about the technical terms, we’ll explain everything and show you how to master a range of techniques, so there’s no need to be gymtimidated. This class is for everyone, whether you’re an exercise newbie or running a marathon. And it’s very practical so you can ask questions along the way. 

Even if you’re sitting at a desk all day or stuck behind the wheel of a car, knowing how to stretch your body effectively brings big benefits, including relief from aches and annoying niggles. Stretch and go – feel more flexible!
