Thank you for subscribing to the Moving Stretch videos! I hope you get a lot of benefit from them. Below are some answers to common questions, if your question is not answered below, please feel free to email and ask.
How soon should I expect to get a benefit from the stretching?
This is very individual; one person can change in a day, another in 3 weeks. Stick with it and you will most likely find that your body changes according to its own schedule and that that cannot be rushed.
How often should I be stretching?
If you are new to movement and have been sedentary for a while you might want to start by stretching around 3 times a week and build up to 6 days a week if you do not experience any pain or fatigue as a result. If you are already pretty fit you can start with 5-6 days a week.
I’m not certain if stretching will help a current issue I have, or if I am fit enough to stretch right now.
You should always check with a doctor or relevant therapist first if you are unsure about stretching or have an injury. You should never push through pain or do anything that is beyond your natural range of motion (i.e. it feels like a strain). Also take care not to stretch in the 40 minutes before you work out.
I am not sure if I am doing the stretching correctly, is there a way to have a Moving Stretch trainer to check my technique?
It may be possible for you to attend a class or arrange an online session with a trainer. You can look for a trainer near you in the Find a trainer section.
I would like to buy membership for a friend, is this possible?
I am worried about submitting my card details, how secure is my information?
I would like to suspend/ cancel my membership, how do I do that?
