  1. We only have a a few Ipads for our school, so we would use it at a station. I could also create a movie of the stretches from the eBook and give it to the media specialist. It could be used for brain breaks for the entire school. All a teacher would need to do is ask the media specialist to play the “stretching movie” for her/his class.

  2. This looks like a great app!! I can’t wait to get back to school tomorrow and download it on my iPad!!! I just love getting this blog each week!!

  3. I would definitely use both the app and the ebook. I could use the app in class by projecting on the wall for the students to use as part of their warm up. I could make copies of the pages of the ebook for station work during a fitness circuit. Looks like an awesome tool for teachers and students!

  4. My name is Ashley Howell and I am student in EDM310 at the University of South Alabama. This looks like a such a great app! I like how the stretches progressively build up in difficulty. It gives the students a chance to go at their own pace, which is excellent. I’ll have to download the app and give it a try! Thanks for the post!

  5. My name is MacKenzie and I am a EDM310 student at the University of South Alabama. I think this app is a great tool for students and teachers. I know I personally have a hard time remembering what the names of stretches are, so the pictures are helpful. This can also assist and encourage students doing exercises outside of class.

  6. This would be a great tool to introduce children to stretching. I would initially use it as perhaps a stretch of the week so that my class can master the stretch and then lead class warm up activities using these

  7. This App is awesome!!! I am a middle school PE teacher, and I am on the blacktop all day long with my iPad and iPhone. We use them for attendance and grades, so to have this as well, is great! Also, the students usually lead the stretches, so they can look at the diagrams and call out the proper terms. I am so excited to use this App! Thanks for sharing!

  8. This is a great App! I am currently a Pioneer for our district in creating new ways to track fitness testing. We currently use the FitnessGram model for our fitness testing. Our goal is to improve the students 5 health components of fitness. We developed “I can” statements for the students and had them track if they did not meet, meets, or exceeds the standards for their age level. Then students choose two components that need improvement. Flexibility is a component in which most students are struggling. We gave them helpful information on how to improve their flexibility on cardio days as well as weight room days. Stretch It allows them to do stretches at their own pace while improving their flexibility. We have initiated an I Pad movement in which all 9th grade students have personal I Pads. Students are able to bring their technology device to class and have this app available. I look forward to post-testing students to see if improvement has occurred.

  9. I would like to use this app with my classes (MS I could choose the appropriate warm ups; HS they could choose appropriate warm up/cool down) as well as with my soccer and hockey teams – do you have static and dynamic stretches Jarrod?

  10. I think that this is a cool tool. I believe that pictures and drawings can show a thousand words. Some students need to see things and then try them. I like how this app would show different appropriate warm up and cool down activity.

  11. Hand the iPad to a student leader (new one each week) and allow them to lead the warm up. Either a small group or whole class

  12. would love to have the eBook. my school does not have wifi, let alone any other advanced technology equipment. i follow on twitter and am glad to be here on the website! thanks for all the info!

  13. I am in need of stretching poses for an independent station. I am doing a Fitness Club unit with my older students and this is the best option I have. Would love to buy the app, but I only have $1.39 on my iTunes and for some reason it’s a dollar cheaper at the Google store. Anyways, would love to utilize this in my classroom in exchange for feedback/review. Thanks!

  14. I have a lot of students that don’t like to stretch because they don’t know how to stretch properly. These cards will give the visual prompts they can follow.
