Utilizing the elastic resistance and fully adjustable straps, the Flexistretcher® allows one to perform dance-specific or sport-specific movement patterns, concentrating on improvements in execution and mobility. Elastic resistance training methods have been used by top coaches, trainers and rehabilitation experts for decades. Implementing these training methods with the Flexistretcher® allows one to extend their range of motion, without the limitations of gravity, optimizing improvements in flexibility and functional strength. Functional and versatile, the Flexistretcher® is a great tool to implement into your training routine from the studio, gym or home.
The Flexistretcher®: Harnessing the power of elastic resistance, the Flexistretcher® has become the training tool of choice by professional dancers globally.
WHY? The Flexistretcher® is used for facilitated stretching which is an active way of stretching that engages isometric contractions to achieve greater flexibility. Utilizing elastic resistance allows for a variable resistance throughout out an exercise, not relying on gravity, and requiring muscle activation throughout the stretch. Furthermore, as the person stretches the band, the resistance increases, challenging the muscles and allowing a full range of motion. The shorter the straps are adjusted the tighter the tension, raising the intensity of the exercise. Working against this resistance forces the muscle to respond with increased effort, which promotes muscle growth, strength, and power. Lightweight and portable, working with the Flexistretcher® allows you to keep up with your flexibility and strength conditioning routine and create a series of tailored exercises from the studio, theatre or gym.
