The S Word

I want to talk about the S word. Yes, that thing that we all think about all the time, that we wish we did more of and a lot of people don’t actually do at all (major sad face). I talk about it all the time in class and also want to do it more. Yup. You guessed it.

Stretching. Hold on. That’s what you were thinking, right? I hope so…

Now that we’ve made it past that (awkward) moment I have good news. There is a place that will help you get more of the S word (stretching, COME ON!) and all you have to do is show up and lay down (I know, I know). It’s called Stretch U and I’m literally OBSESSED. This is a perfect place to go when you don’t feel like doing yoga or rolling on that evil foam roller.

Here’s the even better news, Stretch U has THREE awesome locations in San Diego and is also opening up new shops all around the country. I went to the Kearny Mesa location, but there is also one up in Carlsbad and on Coronado as well. Now, let me tell you, these stretch technicians are NO JOKE. You should have seen them working their mini miracles on my tight tight hip flexors and quads. I was twisting and turning and making all types of faces but when my session was over I felt so so amazing.

The space is very minimal with 3 massage tables and a small welcome area. The technicians will do their best to make you feel comfortable during your stretch sessions by making small talk and getting to know you. I definitely loved the fact that my technician was genuinely interested in understanding my lifestyle so she could better stretch me.

Look at her holding my leg down with her knee while she stretches my hamstrings.. I mean, if that isn't dedication I don't know what is.

I’ve been 3 times so far, always scheduling two back to back 20 minute sessions so I can get a nice deep stretch in, however they do offer single 20 minute sessions to get you in and out on your lunch break! They’re open 7 days a week and have time slots that will work for anyone’s schedule.

Schedule your appointment at stretchu.com or with their mobile app and tell them #FISHMANFIT sent you! You won’t regret it.

PS They have a GROUPON running right now that is an awesome deal too. Check it out HERE and remember it's only for NEW CLIENTS.
