Ratings and Reviews
Awesomely useful and intelligently done!
What's more confusing than trying to figure out a stretching routine? What further complicates the matter is trying to decide just how long you should stretch for. 'Stretching' app simply takes out all of the guess work and gets right down to the matter of, well, stretching.
It has a solid routine with a timing system that tells you just how long the particular stretch will be. What else is its statistical information and user control over the timers.
This app is brilliantly made, with solid features and intelligent design and ability. Five stars all the way!
Easy and Motivating
I’m 32 and was an athlete my whole life, but never saw the value of stretching. As I get older and my muscles and bones don’t hold up like they did when I was 18, I’m starting to realize the value of stretching. I’ve given up on stretching routines because I take on too much too fast and quit because I don’t see results quickly. This app has motivated me to be consistent with the easy stuff and have seen results little by little. I’d love for more stretches to be periodically added. I’ll still give it 5 stars for simplicity and function.
I am a huge fan of this app and have been for several months. It has really helped me push my beginner stretches! My pike and butterfly in particular have progressed a lot. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to get into a stretching routine!
My only issue is that as I find myself progressing through the stretch, I wish I could add others that help push my flexibility further. I see other similar requests for more stretches. My minimal-complexity suggestion would be to allow users to add pictures/descriptions of other stretches to modify/add to the routine.
