Group Strength & Flexibility Class
A movement enhancement system creating usable ranges of motion
If you want to get better at crossfit, yoga, hockey, golf, equestrian, & so much more you need Kinstretch in your life.
Most injuries happen because our bodies aren’t ready for the movements required, meaning many injuries are preventable or can be mitigated.
What is Kinstretch? A mobility based strength system developed through scientific research – it’s kind of like an advanced yoga class that everyone can come to! During your class you will use limited equipment (I.e. mats, blocks, balls) and the focus will be on utilizing bodyweight with irradiation (whole body tension) to induce loading on body tissues.
What are the benefits? Improved physical performance, improved strength, injury prevention/mitigation, improved agility/flexibility/mobility, weight loss, improved range of motion, improved body awareness and control, and increased neurological function.
Class Goals: Increase your functional strength and mobility so that you can perform better, live your life more comfortably, and mitigate injuries. In essence, the ultimate goal of Kinstretch is to keep you on the course, the mat, or in the game doing the things you love. We do this by providing you with education about your body so that you can monitor your own body for dysfunction, as well as provide you with the tools to take your training into your own hands.
How often do I need to attend class? We know that to progress efficiently you often need to be doing more than one class a week. However we understand this isn’t always possible. As such, part of the Kinstretch & BodySmart methodology is dedicated to home based exercise work to promote lasting effects so you can achieve your goals.
Who is Kinstretch for? Although Kinstretch can be catered to specific groups (I.e. crossfit athletes, yogis, dancers, NFL/NHL players, desk jockeys) the system was ultimately designed to help humans to ensure our strength/flexibility/mobility/joint needs are being met. Each class at BodySmart will be geared towards those in attendance.
New York Mets Pitcher Noah Snydergaard discovers Kinstretch.
“Nobody really wants to stretch now,” he added, “but I’ve had this desire to become a more well-rounded athlete, as opposed to just someone who lifts and is strong. I want to be strong, and be mobile, hostile and agile.”
Syndergaard has also been doing a program called Kinstretch at the Soho Strength Lab in New York. He said Kinstretch was a more athletic advanced yoga, helping him work on the strength and flexibility of weaker joints and areas, such as his hips, back or gluteus. He said he had already noticed a difference.
“I feel like I’m able to control my body a lot better now, or just be more athletic,” he said. “Right now, I’m trying to build a better base.”
