StretchLab Expands with Lafayette Opening and New Walnut Creek Site in Progress

StretchLab is expanding its footprint in the Bay Area with new locations in Lafayette and Walnut Creek. The Lafayette location, located at 3581-B Mt. Diablo Blvd, has recently opened, offering personalized and group assisted stretching sessions to the community. Open Monday to Friday from 8 am to 8 pm, and Saturday to Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm, StretchLab aims to enhance flexibility and overall well-being through its tailored services.

At StretchLab Lafayette, clients can choose from 25 or 50-minute one-on-one sessions with trained flexologists who guide them through customized stretches designed to meet individual needs. Additionally, innovative group classes are available, led by Flexologists, to improve flexibility and range of motion for participants of all fitness levels. These group sessions ensure that everyone, regardless of their current physical condition, can find a suitable stretching solution.

In addition to the new Lafayette location, StretchLab is also under construction in Walnut Creek. The upcoming center will be located at the Countrywood Shopping Center, 2054 Treat Blvd, Suite 14. While the exact opening date remains unknown, the Walnut Creek location promises to bring the same high-quality stretching services to a new community, further expanding StretchLab's reach in the Bay Area.
