Alyssa

Lead FLEXpert

Studio Owner

This delightful personality is more than a wife & mom of twins. She's a lifetime athlete & competitor who has experienced firsthand the need for increased performance, as well as the pain of suffering through injury. She is Stretchly's owner and Lead FLEXpert who has merged age-old stretch methodologies with a modern-day twist of luxury and service.

Alyssa found her passion for this field the moment she received her first stretch in 2019 quite literally yelling "THIS IS WHAT I WAS MEANT TO DO...". Alyssa accepted a role at a local stretch studio in 2020 and quickly earned a loyal base of customers as well as the lead position amongst her peers. With her husband (Matt), Alyssa developed a new brand, new process, and new standard of excellence that will hopefully communicate value to customers above all else. Stretchly is a product of her vision for this community and the desire to bring wellness to everyone she encounters.

Shelley

Sr. FLEXpert

Shelley has been a life-long fitness enthusiast but developed an interest in corrective exercise after suffering injuries and undergoing 3 separate surgeries. She credits corrective exercise as playing a tremendous role in her recovery, which was the main reason she decided to become a certified Corrective Exercise Specialist. Shelley has worked with clients ranging in age from 11 to 99 and has a sincere passion for helping her clients achieve optimal, pain-free movement, whether they are recovering from an injury, training for competition, or just want to feel better.

When she is not working, Shelley enjoys spending time with her husband and their two dogs. She loves to travel and go on new adventures; she is especially fond of hiking in the mountains when the opportunity presents itself.

Fun fact: Shelley has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do!

Paul

FLEXpert

"I originally became interested in fitness in order to help myself live the best life possible. As I started to see the results of my hard work, I fell in love with it. The more I learned and the more I trained, the better I felt. I became obsessed with all types of training. It became obvious to me at that point, I should help people feel the way I feel and help people fall in love with their health and live their best life."

Paul is a Military Veteran and truly a 'student of the stretch'. Paul is quick to offer alternatives and recommended improvements to daily routine that will have a truly long-lasting impact. He can do this with confidence because he practices what he preaches and has proven to be a highly effective communicator for both new and seasoned stretch customers.

Carina

FLEXpert

Carina has been passionate about helping others as long as she can remember. Carina fell in love with PNF Stretching as soon as she experienced the value it created for those around her and insisted on sharing it with others. While working with a wide variety of clients with different goals, she became familiar with what drives, as well as what can impede, people from moving closer to their goals.

Carina thoughtfully listens to your concerns and responds with programming tailored specifically for you.

Carina lives life big with her husband in crime and expanding family - in the winter, you’ll find her outside as often as possible on skis. Summer is always spent on water. As an extreme extrovert, she loves ANY activity, so long as other people are involved! In between skiing, lake living, training and stretching, you’ll find her in the kitchen cooking up some pretty amazing meals or dining at some of her favorite restaurants.

Fun fact: Because she has a fear of flying, she didn’t step on an airplane for 8 years. As a result, she and her family drove all over the country, which opened their eyes to the beautiful, diversified landscapes all of America has to offer. She is back to flying and has flown overseas and continues to be amazed at all this world has to offer.

Stephanie

FLEXpert

Stephanie has been passionate about health and fitness for as long as she can remember. She has always gravitated towards living a healthy lifestyle and loves helping others discover that even small changes can add up and lead to big results. She graduated from the University of Northwestern - St. Paul with a degree in kinesiology and a minor in psychology. She realized there was so much more to learn and went on to receive her master's in exercise science from Concordia University - St. Paul.

Stephanie grew up playing volleyball and basketball and now stays active by running (anything from 5Ks to marathons), cross-training with either HIIT workouts or strength training, walking or hiking on local trails, and will throw in an occasional bike ride. She loves stretching both to help wake her up in the morning as well as to help relax at night, and she always tries to make time to foam roll after a workout. In her free time, Stephanie enjoys spending time with her husband and friends, travelling to new places, reading, and trying out new recipes.

Fun fact: Stephanie didn't start running consistently until she ran in her first organized 5K race at age 29.

In 2021, Shay decided to expand on her health and wellness journey and it was then she discovered the opportunity for neuromuscular stretching and immediately became indulged in the benefits and effectiveness of the practice.

Connor

Certifications:
BS in Kinesiology

* Student - Doctor of Chiropractic

Connor

FLEXpert

Connor, a Prior Lake native, started his fitness journey during his first year of college at Iowa State University. After learning about powerlifting competitions at the ISU Weight Club, he made it his goal to qualify for a national level competition. In 2018, after four prior competitions, he finally qualified for and competed in the USAPL national powerlifting competition in Spokane, Washington. Achieving his goal came with a burnt out and aching body. This compelled Connor to learn more about recovery and nutrition. Although he was already planning to attend chiropractic school, he realized how beneficial chiropractic care was for his own recovery and how he could help other people with their fitness goals. This reinforced his decision to become a chiropractor.

Now, Connor is currently enrolled in Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington to become a Doctor of Chiropractic. He has developed a holistic and scientific perspective that focuses on the natural healing capabilities of the body. Connor looks forward to using his knowledge and experience of neuromuscular stretching to expand his ability to help others.

 

Fun fact: Connor enjoys playing videogames, spending time with family, and hiking.
