Stretch is an interval timer that helps users build customisable stretch routines.
For most people who stretch often, it’s common to follow premade routines, e.g. in a class, following a YouTube video or using a yoga instruction app. However, people managing chronic pain or rehabbing an injury are often prescribed targeted stretches with precise hold durations. These exercises can be awkward to time, particularly when there are multiple exercises to complete, each with varying durations.
Make it easy to follow a custom stretching routine
This project is borne out of a personal need for an interval timer that makes it easy to build and follow custom stretching routines. An exploration of the current product market revealed that no such app exists on the Google Play or Apple App stores.
