FLATIRON, Manhattan — We can run for miles and take spin classes, but when it comes to stretching, it seems like that's the part we walk away from.

So now the folks at the new boutique fitness studio, Stretch*d, want to do the work for you. They want to help you get loose.

It's the newest fitness trend, assisted stretching. It's supposed to help improve flexibility, lower your risk of injury and help you relax.

We headed into Stretch*d in the Flatiron District to see what it's all about.

Amanda Freeman the co-owner of Stretch*d said they have all types of people visit their studio.

“People who sit at their desk all day and people who sit in front row of spin class, being stretched by someone else is a lot more effective and enjoyable.”

Marathon runner, Yosef Herzog comes here twice a week.

“This place has helped me round out my recovery and ascend my prevention arsenal.”

The owners of Stretch*d even said stretching can give you some height by improving your posture.

They recommend you come at least twice a month to get the full benefit!
