    The Stretch Zone Method® addresses flexibility from a neurological perspective. This is achieved by dealing with the muscle’s nervous tension (“tonus”) to reach an optimal active range of motion. The goal is not to make a person more “flexible” or “elastic,” but rather enable you to move more functionally by re-establishing a more ideal resting muscle tone. By re-educating the associated nerve-muscle reflex, the Stretch Zone Method® leads to movement becoming easier and more efficient.

    Rather than creating soreness by pulling on our limbs to extremes, the Stretch Zone Method® works through the nervous system to achieve lasting gains in flexibility and range of motion. The method rests on the notion that changing and re-educating our muscle’s nervous energy is a major factor in unleashing our body’s intended function. This nervous energy, known as the stretch reflex, is our body’s automatic defense against the dangers of over-stretching. Any movement that goes too fast or too far, or is held for too long, will cause your body to resist with the stretch reflex. Once the reflex is activated, your body has effectively said “no more” and resists the stretch. Any further attempt at stretching becomes counter productive and may even cause long term damage.

    Trevor Jacobus

    General Manager

    My name is Trevor Jacobus and I have been involved in the health and fitness industry since the day I turned 18. Becoming a certified personal trainer at a young age is what developed my passion to help improve as many aspects of my client’s life as possible. I’ve learned that taking care of your body isn’t always about the body, it’s about putting in the work to ensure you live your best possible life. Since beginning this journey, I have studied Exercise Science at UT Austin, managed health clubs for 5 years, and have trained a wide variety of clients. My favorite part about working in this industry is without a doubt seeing those I work with succeed, but I now realize that those I’ve worked with have taught me so much more than I have them. I feel truly blessed to be a part of bringing Stretch Zone to East Texas. Stretch Zone has a unique methodology that creates a path to healthier body, and a happier you. We are here to help make East Texas a better place, one stretch at a time.

    My name is Joseph Hill. I served 4 years in the U.S Army as an infantryman. During my time in service, I faced several injuries. Being able to overcome those obstacles through stretching and mobility really started my love for fitness. I became a certified personal trainer with specializations in injury prevention, nutrition, strength/conditioning, and corrective exercise. I have spent the past 5 years managing gym’s fitness departments. I believe stretching and moving your body are the proper tools for longevity. I am very excited about being part of Stretch Zone, with our methodology and accountability the results are endless.

    Owner

    “As a client, with horrible sciatica pain, once I experienced the pain free benefit that Stretch Zone’s practitioner-assisted stretch did for me – I made the decision that I wanted to help everyone I could live a more painfree lifestyle. So my husband and I bought three Franchise locations! I live the difference everyday, in my posture, range of motion, and my overall wellness. The benefits are long lasting,” Comfort adds. “We’re thrilled to bring the benefits of Stretch Zone’s pioneering stretch methodology to our Tyler community.”

    TESTIMONIALS

    What Our Customers Have To Say

    “I have had both knees replaced, my hip replaced, and have broken my right ankle. When I would walk, I would be terrified of falling. I am AMAZED that I am walking smoothly and with better posture. I help take care of my husband and now feel confident to assist him when needed. I no longer have a fear of falling and I feel so good that I began working out with a personal trainer! My focus now is to improve my flexibility even more, feel less stressed, and get fit for my life!”

    - Barbara P

    “I was diagnosed with MS in 2014 and have dealt with mobility issues and occasional falls/injuries since. I have noticed that day-to-day activities, like bending over to tie my shoes, have become easier over the last few months, and I am one step closer to getting rid of my walker!”

    - Harriet F.

    “My initial goal when coming to Stretch Zone was to touch my nose to my knees, and I have already surpassed this! I am now working on increasing my shoulder mobility and range of motion. You don’t realize how good the joints feel after a good stretch – it’s almost like the joints are glowing!”

    - Maggie R.

    “I came to Stretch Zone after noticing more stiffness in my body. I play a lot of golf and have beaten my personal best TWICE since I started working with Stretch Zone. My schedule is busy but making time for stretching and coming in consistently has made my whole body feel better. I feel great after every session!”

    - Jim G.

    “I was looking to increase my balance and make it easier to do everyday activities. Since coming to Stretch Zone, my hip and leg mobility has improved, and I am able to do simple things like clip my toenails. A few weeks ago, I began to trip while working in my yard, and I was proud that I was able to catch myself before falling!”

    - Jill H.

    “I had pain in my hips and shoulders in addition to complications from bulging discs in my back. I have been working with Stretch Zone for a few months and I no longer have ANY shoulder pain! I am involved in the music industry, and I have noticed a lot more hip mobility and improvement with endurance when loading and unloading equipment.”

    - Trey T.

    “I have been dealing with back spasms and severe back pain for two years. I have tried everything to help the pain. After three weeks at Stretch Zone, I noticed my pain has decreased and my mobility has increased! I am not spending as much time in bed due to back pain and am able to spend more time walking and enjoying the activities I love!
