Our Certified Stretch Specialists use the latest in recovery techniques and technology to help you function at your highest level.
Your 25- or 50-minute session includes:
- Movement screening
- Active and passive stretches
- Range of motion work
- Breathing exercises
- Recovery tools
Complimentary recovery experiences are available to all members, located in the recovery area of club. Equipment availability varies by club.
For muscle support pre- and post-workout, reach for massage guns, hot and cold wraps, vibrating rollers and trigger point devices.
Reduce post-workout soreness with a Normatec session. Wrap-style devices use compression technology to increase blood flow and circulation to your legs, arms or hips.
A convenient alternative to ice baths and gas cryotherapy, CryoLounge chairs offer dry hot and cold therapy. Choose a program or set your own zones to customize the heat and cold to your areas of need.
Relax and relieve muscle tension with a HydroMassage session. This dry massage chair uses high-pressure jets of hot water that move up and down the body to massage muscles, increase circulation and promote overall well-being.
Dynamic Stretch and Recovery FAQs
Where in the club do I meet my stretch specialist for my appointment?
Meet your Certified Stretch Specialist at the Dynamic Stretch tables in the recovery area of your club. Arrive 5 minutes early to get the most out of your session without added stress.
What should I wear?
For Dynamic Stretch, please wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely and clean socks.
The HydroMassage and CryoLounge chairs are dry therapy, meaning you are fully clothed during the session. Wear comfortable clothing and socks (you will remove your shoes).
Do I need to check out the recovery chairs and equipment?
The CryoLounge, HydroMassage and Normatec devices require reservations at select clubs. Visit the “Dynamic Stretch + Recovery” tile on the Life Time app to learn more about what’s available at your club and make a reservation if needed.
In most clubs, all equipment in the recovery area is first come, first served — no reservations are required.
Will there be someone available to show me how to use the recovery chairs and equipment?
For Hyperice tools, consider downloading the Hyperice app for guided sessions. The CryoLounge, HydroMassage and Normatec devices use intuitive touch screens to activate and adjust the machines. Select clubs have a recovery coordinator on staff to assist you.
