A movement system to build flexibility and enhance your range of motion. Stretching is a vital component in any fitness regime, whether you’re a fitness newbie or a professional level athlete.
KGA Stretching classes are based on gymnastic principles. Classes are challenging but supervised and catered to each participant’s level of mobility. KGA stretch intends to take your flexibility to the next level. It goes deep into the hips, hamstrings and back. These classes have been developed to highly condition the body whilst safely maintaining joint stability, especially in the core and around the spine.The Stretch classes are open to men and women of all ages and fitness levels.
As exercise routines have become steadily more rigorous, pushing our bodies to failure (F45, CrossFit, Spartan Races and Tough Mudder) the need for dedicated mobility and flexibility sessions as part of a balanced workout routine is more important than ever. KGA Stretching is the best way to reduce injuries/pain, aid recovery and enhance performance for a more balanced fitness routine.
Each class is 60 minutes. The first 15 minutes involve an intense warm up to loosen up the joints and muscles before we move into deep stretching. it is also the best way to loosen up muscles as part of the recovery process after an intense training session.
I was looking for a class that would improve my flexibility and KGA stretching has helped me achieve a deeper stretch, I can feel the improvements every week. Very happy with the results i’ve achieved!
