Pros and Cons:

Over 80% of Americans don't get enough exercise, and likely don't do enough stretching either, despite its ability to improve blood circulation, mobility, and flexibility. Those who do work out regularly need it: repetitive motions can cause damage to the body. Even just 20 minutes of stretching a week can counteract damage and prevent potential injuries. Not to mention, people say they sleep better, and it just feels great to stretch. Stretch Zone was an early creator of the stretching studio movement that has taken hold all across the country as the popularity of "recovery" widens. ClassPass Inc., the largest health club aggregator by number of club partnerships, with over 30,000 health clubs in 28 countries, named stretching studios the fastest-growing trend just before the pandemic, reporting a 16% increase in restorative and recovery classes being booked. The category is no longer restricted to professional athletes or physical therapy offices. Deep stretching by a professional, which differs from self-stretching or even yoga in its effectiveness, is not something most Americans have experienced. That makes it a somewhat difficult sell: it's not a massage, but it's also not fitness. It's exercise-like, in that it's good for you, but someone else is doing the work. When you experience it, you get it. There's definitely education that has to happen and industry experts have found that when people try it once, they come back. If people try it twice, they come back regularly.

Opportunities and Growth:

Educating the public to reach and attract more customers is key. Investing in pop-ups to bring its services to boutique gyms, YMCAs, or companies where people sit too much, will help expand the market. Some experts predict stretching could grow as big as Pilates, if not bigger. The category sees an equal amount of male and female attendees, and if the “self-care” trend continues as its current pace, consumers will only seek more and more recovery methods. Even Massage Envy, with its 1,000-plus locations, recently added a stretching option.
