What is Kinstretch®

Kinstretch is defined as “a movement enhancement system that develops maximal body control, flexibility, and usable ranges of motion” by Functional Range Systems (FRS) 

However, you can think of it as an exercise class that combines flexibility, strength training, body control, Joint health, and injury rehabilitation/pre-habilitation all in one. This will help you move better and feel better on a daily basis.  

Group and private classes are available.

Fitness Training FAQ

How many times should I work out in a week?

This depends on a few things, what are our goals? Are you already familiar with physical activity? Do you have any injuries that we need to workaround? But as a rough starting point, I recommend 3 times per week to start. One of my main goals with new clients is to make physical activity a habit that is maintainable.

Is Kinstretch like yoga?

Oftentimes Kinstretch gets compared to Yoga. While Yoga is great at creating more flexibility, kinstretch adds to that by making sure we strengthen it whatever range we open with the stretching.  Flexibility + Strength= Mobility.  
Yes, there will be positions where we hold a stretch, but we will also be strengthening in that position as well!

What are the best workouts for weight loss?

There are many ways you can go about working out to assist with weight loss, the biggest thing is that you move and get your heart rate up. For a lot of my clients, I typically recommend circuit-style training that can include a variety of full-body resistance and cardiovascular movements.

What should I bring for my first training session?

All you really need is comfortable clothing that you can move around easily in, a water bottle, good footwear for working out in (runners), and if you do have injuries that require a brace or support, please bring that as well.

What to expect out of my first training session?

First off, I really enjoy what I do and I want you to enjoy yourself as well. Most sessions I will usually chat a bit and go over a couple of forms first that just make sure you are safe for exercise, give me insight as to your goals for training with me, and if you have any injuries or other matters that we need to work around with your training. I will take you through a warm-up that involves some stretching and mobility work. Then we will get to the workout; the first session typically gives me a good idea of how you move and your current fitness level. Last off is the cooldown where we will finish off with some stretching and discuss if you have some weekly goals you would like to work on until I see you again.

Who is Kinstretch for?

Kinstretch is great for everyone of all skill levels. It is a very adaptable class where we can progress and regress movements based on the person’s needs and limitations.

Will Kinstretch help me with my sports/activities?

The short answer is yes. By being able to express and control larger ranges of motion, you can increase athletic performance, longevity, and injury resiliency so you are able to do the things you want at a higher level and for a longer time.

What if I have an injury, Can I still participate?

Generally, most people with an injury can participate in a kinstretch class as everything is done in pain-free ranges. However, you should still seek advice from your health care professional to see if this is right for you at this time.

What do I need to bring to a kinstretch session?

Make sure to wear/bring comfortable loose clothing, a water bottle, and a towel.  Equipment will be supplied, however, if you have your own yoga blocks or mat you are more than welcome to bring them.
