Why buy the StretchTrainer™?

A lot of people who know stretching is an important part of a complete workout rarely stretch. Some think it takes too long. Or they don't know how to stretch properly. Others don't like the idea of stretching on a floor mat.

The Precor StretchTrainer doesn't take any of these excuses lying down. It's easy, it feels good, and it quickly helps you get consistent stretches every time. The patented design increases flexibility, helps improve overall athletic performance and can even reduce the chance of injury. All this explains why universities, rehabilitation facilities, professional sports teams and athletes use the StretchTrainer.

Below are benefits of the StretchTrainer:

A new and better way to stretch
The StretchTrainer was designed to isolate your muscles so they can stretch correctly and more thoroughly than stretching on the floor. Stretching from the seated position enables you to keep your pelvis and knees in place and better stabilize your back. Using your own body weight and by gently rocking backwards in the pivot seat while holding onto the handlebar, you are able to achieve a full stretch in much less time than stretching on the floor.

Improves flexibility for everyday activities. The more flexible your joints, muscles and tendons, the more efficiently and safely your will be able to accomplish the ordinary movements they perform countless times a day.

Improves athletic performance and coordination.Stretching uses a series of contractions and relaxations that send signals through the pathways of the central nervous system. Frequent use of these pathways will increase coordination. In addition, all joints have their own level of flexibility. Tight muscles or joints can lead to improper body mechanics. Flexible joints and muscles allow the athlete to conduct the most efficient and effective movement.

Helps prevent loss of flexibility over time.The StretchTrainer can be especially beneficial for people who have not stretched in years. While flexibility will decrease dramatically if you don't stretch, flexibility will not decrease with age (or decrease less) if you continue to stretch.

May relieve or reduce pain. Many individuals who suffer back pain have inflexible hamstrings coupled with weak abdominal muscles. This causes the pelvis to tilt forward when standing, decreasing the curvature of the lumbar spine and resulting in added stress on the vertebral column, an increased load on the postural muscle, and fatigue. Since the StretchTrainer keeps your pelvis in place and stabilizes extremities, you are able to "unload" your spine, relieving stress on the vertebral column.

May help relieve arthritis pain. Arthritis sufferers and anyone with a degenerative joint condition may find relief with the StretchTrainer. As your joints move, the amount of synovial fluid in the joints increases while the thickness of the fluid decreases. This process enhances the lubrication in the joint and can even delay the onset or progression of arthritis.

Easy to use. It's as easy as getting on and get stretching. There is an instructional placard that details the eight essential stretches. There are comfortable wrist wraps to provide comfortable security as you go through the movements.

Gets your stretching routine off the floor.Many people may resist stretching since it requires being on the floor and it's an unfamiliar routine. The StretchTrainer addresses these concerns by placing you in proper stretching position off the floor. To make the stretching program easier and intuitive, key stretches are clearly detailed on the instructional placard mounted on the equipment.

Built to last. Like any Precor product, the StretchTrainer was built with you in mind. And the handlebars and kneepads are covered with sweat-resistant foam for added comfort and long-term durability.

Space-efficient and easy to assemble.And since its frame is made with powder-coated steel to prevent rusting and chipping, it will look good for years to come.

Moving forward, we will continue to focus on understanding the role fitness plays in everyday life and how users interact with our equipment. We use every observation to create equipment that makes exercise more engaging, enjoyable, fluid, and natural. And we believe we’ll change how you think about and pursue fitness again in the future.
