StretchLab Stays a Cut Above with Machine that Measures and Analyzes Movement Inefficiencies

IRVINE, Calif. — StretchLab, the national assisted stretching franchise, is reaching for new heights with the integration of TRX MAPS Technology into its programming. The company announced today that the revolutionary machine which identifies movement inefficiencies across four critical categories – mobility, activation, posture and symmetry (MAPS) – will be rolling out in its 50-plus studios nationwide over the next few months, as well as all locations in development. StretchLab is the first assisted stretching brand to utilize this technology and has partnered with TRX to be the only assisted stretching brand that will use MAPS.

At StretchLab, clients work one-on-one with highly trained Flexologists™ in an open, modern and friendly environment to increase mobility and flexibility and achieve a deeper, more advanced stretch than one can get on their own. Once an oft-neglected and overlooked area of fitness, deep stretching is scientifically proven to be one of the most effective ways to decrease pain, lower risk of injury and provide people the ability to perform better at work, in the gym and in everyday life.

The TRX MAPS machine will be a huge asset to StretchLab’s offerings as technology continues to permeate the boutique fitness and wellness industry. MAPS uses 3-D technology to perform a total body movement assessment scan in under 30 seconds, as users perform 3 body-weight squats. Results are delivered on-screen and via email, which will allow StretchLab’s Flexologists to better serve the needs of its diverse members by fostering a customized movement plan and offering a measurable way to see progress in flexibility.

“With technology-driven and trackable workouts continually on the rise in the fitness industry, StretchLab is excited to bring this trend to the recovery space with the TRX MAPS machine,” said Lou DeFrancisco, President of StretchLab. “While the benefits of stretching and recovery are undeniable, we believe the integration of technology in this vertical will prove just how advanced and effective StretchLab’s programming and Flexologists are.”

Founded in 2015, StretchLab offers a variety of one-on-one personalized stretching services including a 25-minute stretch that concentrates on areas to focus on the client’s current stretching needs, as well as a 50-minute head-to-toe deep stretch that addresses all major muscle groups. In addition to one-on-one stretching services, two small format group stretching classes are also available, in which a Flexologist leads clients through a warm up and sequence of stretches to address major muscle groups.

Demand for One-on-One Stretching Services Creates Devoted Following

IRVINE, Calif. — StretchLab, a one-on-one assisted stretching concept that launched as national franchise just last year has signed its 250th franchise agreement, catapulting the brand into dozens of new markets and proving mass appeal from teenagers to 90-year-olds and anyone in between.

StretchLab currently has 79 studios open and will continue to grow in markets such as Chicago, New York, New Jersey, Northern and Southern California, North Carolina and South Carolina through the recent franchise agreements.

“There are countless ways people are getting in their next greatest workout and pushing themselves to the limit. We are successful in helping people recover and restore so they can keep up their fitness routines,” said StretchLab President Lou DeFrancisco. “In each new market where we open, we’re finding a built-in customer base already waiting for us.”

Launched as a franchise opportunity in February 2018, the brand is averaging more than 11 new signed agreements per month. As boutique fitness booms across all forms of exercise, StretchLab supplements each with boutique wellness – tapping into the 62 million annual health club visitors with a scientific recovery method, as well as anyone seeking reduced muscle and joint pain, improved posture or decreased stress. StretchLab’s 25- or 50-mintue sessions leave clients with the confidence to perform better.

At StretchLab, clients work one-on-one with highly trained Flexologists™ in an open, modern and friendly environment to increase mobility and flexibility and achieve a deeper, more advanced stretch than one can get on their own, creating a widespread and devoted following across the country.

In the Tampa, Florida area, local husband-and-wife team George Spowart and Soosie Lazenby signed an agreement to open three studios, the first of which opened this month in Largo, Florida. Spowart, the former Chief Marketing Officer of PODS and Lazenby, the owner of a local event and design company, evaluated dozens of franchise concepts and ultimately decided on StretchLab because they say it’s complementary, not competitive, to other fitness and wellness activities.

“Both of us have always been passionate about fitness so it’s exciting to bring our business experience to something we really believe in — getting involved with StretchLab was a natural next step for us,” said Lazenby.

Backed by Xponential Fitness, the largest curator of boutique fitness brands in the world, CEO Anthony Geisler established it to bring the highest-quality boutique fitness brands together under one umbrella. Housing brands across every vertical of the industry and accelerating their growth domestically and internationally, Xponential’s portfolio of brands includes Club Pilates, CycleBar, StretchLab, Row House, AKT, YogaSix, Pure Barre and STRIDE.
