It depends on your flexibility, health, and fitness goals, as well as on your overall exercise regime.
- If you are focused on increasing flexibility, we recommend starting with at least two 30 min classes a week, giving your body 2-3 days to recover in between sessions. See how it goes for you and adjust regularity and class length accordingly. Eventually, you can stretch every day if your body feels good, and if you mix deep stretching and recovery sessions (that's how our flexibility Programs are designed, please check them out!). Please keep in mind, there are no shortcuts to flexibility. It takes time. So listen to your body and be patient. To secure the best results, we recommend stretching as consistently as possible.
- f flexibility is not your main goal and you use STRETCHIT to improve your performance in other activities (running, weight training, etc.), we suggest using our short classes labeled as Difficulty 1 and 2 (the difficulty level is indicated by lightning symbols) as a warm-up and/or a cool-down with your workouts. You are welcome to try other classes too and see how it goes for you.
- If you stretch to feel good without any specific goal in mind, aim at stretching for about 10-15 min a day, using our short classes labeled as Difficulty 1 and 2. Please also check out our Daily Stretch section on the Home screen.
