Stretching Your Life started out as two friends (Dana and Kim) having fun and staying healthy; rehabilitating Dana’s back injury, entering multiple outdoor events/races together, and scratching things off their “bucket lists”. And it quickly morphed into something much bigger and stronger — two friends wanting to share their love for people, fun, functional movement, pain management, motivation, health, fitness and an active lifestyle with others. They are proud to say, the company continues today with the same priority — to teach and motivate YOU about health, fitness, and flexibility, so that YOU too can have fun and stretch the number of years that you remain active. In essence their mission is to help YOU have fun and Stretch Your Life.
**By the way, if you get bored during any of your sessions ask Kim/Dana about the details of how they became close friends in 2009 it’s good comic relief….
As for the name of the company, it presented itself to them out of sincerity and humor (as you’ll find most things do when the two of them are together). During an assisted stretching session in preparation for a running event, Dana thanked Kim for helping her achieve various personal running goals and with a hint of sarcasm, while stretching, said, “Kim, you have ‘stretched my life'”. The two laughed. Then Dana quickly remarked, “Hey, seriously , ‘Stretching Your Life’ — that would be a good name for a business that uses stretching to improve a client’s mobility”. Kim acknowledged, “Yeah, it would” and made a mental note of Dana’s life long interest in anatomy, physiology, health, fitness, and her fascination with with fascia, AIS, and proper body mechanics that Kim introduced while working to help heal Dana’s back injury. It wasn’t long thereafter that Kim and Dana joined forces and created Stretching Your Life LLC and began providing the very same educational and therapeutic experience for others with the ultimate goal to “stretch the lives” of others — lengthen the number of years their clients remain active, mobile, and flexible.
Since creating the company in 2009, Kim and Dana have thoroughly enjoyed working with individuals, therapists, and groups of all ages and levels of mobility to provide practical solutions for everyday health challenges and needs. They improve the lives of their clients through longevity wellness and injury education; massage/stretch therapy; strength training, and large doses of motivation!
You’ll quickly find out that their upbeat personalities will inspire you to take charge of your health and motivate you to gain control over your pain and inhibited mobility. They love their work and their clients and look forward to helping you so they can witness you Stretching Your Life!!!
