David Moskowitz fell in love with the concept of assisted stretching after visiting a StretchLab during a trip to California. He was blown away by the holistic health benefits the service offered. From decreasing pain and tension, to improving health, flexibility and mobility, the experience was deeply impactful, and inspired him to bring the brand to Torontonians. StretchLab sessions are fully customized to meet the needs of each individual, and are inclusive for people of all ages and physical ability.

From your perspective, what are the benefits of wellness?
Wellness is not singular faceted; it involves various aspects of your life including a physical fitness plan, a food consumption plan, a physical and mental recovery plan. Having all aspects of wellness considered will enable someone to receive the full benefits of being WELL.
Why did you decide to focus on this industry?
While in California on a trip I came across this brand StretchLab and decided to try it out. I fell in love with the concept of stretching, as someone who pays attention to their physical fitness stretching has always been a part of my journey but not in a manner that would keep me consistent. Once I found this brand it brought to light that in my own wellness journey I needed to ensure that I stretch on a regular basis the proper way. Stretching is an aspect of health that we as people don’t do enough. It was important for me to show Torontonians a better way to incorporate this into their daily life.
