In the last year I had two knee replacements. After completing physical therapy I went to StretchPlex in Hockessin. I have worked weekly with Mary LaFrance for 8-9 months. Her help has been extraordinary. Careful, strong and knowledgeable. I always leave feeling invigorated. My total body flexibility has never been better since I was a kid. She’s also a really nice fun person (Loves dogs) and makes the whole experience very pleasant. I recommend her highly with reservation.

I was a bit nervous at my first session at StretchPlex. However, Chris is awesome and addressed all my questions. He’s kind, professional and very knowledgeable and customized a routine to address my concerns. I always left feeling relax and more flexible. Never any pain! I plan to make this a part of my healthcare routine. I highly recommend Chris and this location.

I've been seeing Brian or Julius for the past 18 months, for post op stretching after a total knee replacement. After each session I feel more rejuvenated and relaxed than when I entered. The staff is friendly and listens to the needs of their clients. They are never pushy, but instead, sincerely caring of how to best serve you. I've recommended to many friends and will continue to do so.

StretchPlex, how do I rate thee? Let me count the ways: excellent communication with my 'stretcher' (Chris), no stress appointment setups, ways to utilize my sessions (once, twice a week, skip a week, etc.), just a really good feeling after my sessions where I look forward to the next one. Thanks for being here.

I have been a client of Mary’s at StrechPlex in Hockessin for over 3 years. It is a welcomed break in my schedule. Mary holds me accountable while working on overall body health and flexibility…we cycle and work on all muscle groups. The atmosphere and standards are top notch.

I throughly enjoy and look forward to my weekly “Stretch” appointment with Chris.Chris is exceptionally wonderful at stretching particular body muscles that you didn’t know you had or realize needed to be stretched. Chris has a friendly, relaxing, and at ease comfort personality as he takes his time working with you as if you were his only patient for the remainder of the day. As he stretches your muscles gently and slowly, he also ask “if you are good” as he continues to accomplish the full stretch. Chris is very professional and extremely knowledgeable with the body parts and its muscles that you will feel ten times greater and lighter after your session with him then you did before.I highly recommend Chris as well as the facility, which is very clean, airy, and comfortable. Upon opening the door, you are treated with extreme kindness as you are greeted and welcomed with a warm smile.I look forward to my next session with Chris every week, as I feel so much better, looser, and lighter, walking out versus walking in.

I have been going for assisted stretching for about 2 months now. I wasn’t sure what to expect. Victoria at the front desk was so kind. Maureen my coach, is amazing. Each visit I leave feeling a lot less stressed and a whole lot more flexible and wanting to move more. I had a right femur replaced with rod and screws last year and I’m still healing. To anyone who is feeling trapped in their own body and full of pain, been in traditional therapy, and still need that extra push, this works wonders. It’s the best thing I have done for myself since the surgery and it feels great!!

I recently started Assisted Stretching as I have felt quite stiff following knee replacement surgery. Emily has been helping me to become more flexible and, although I have had only two sessions, I feel that my muscles are getting looser. She listens to my feedback and helps me where I need it. To help me rehabilitate completely, I plan to complete my sessions and then follow up with personal training with Emily to get back into shape. Thank you, Emily.

My son started with Mary a couple of weeks ago for compression therapy. After talking with her about his needs she recommended assisted stretching for him. He says he feels more loose while playing football and he enjoys chatting with her. Would 100% recommend!

OMG you will definitely feel a big difference after one assisted stretch visit! I have been feeling tight and stiff for quite some time. I can now get out of the car after an extended trip without feeling stiff! The staff is friendly and very knowledgeable. Maureen explains everything in detail and makes sure the client knows to advise of their limits. I find it very relaxing.

I was a couch potato until I had health issues that prompted me to make changes. I have been working with Mary for about a year now. She is great at knowing when to push a little, and when to back off a little. Mary has tailored a program to help me improve my health and my strength, and is always mindful of my needs. She is always ready with an encouraging word. In addition to being my personal trainer, Mary does assisted stretching with me on a regular basis. This has helped me so much! It cuts down on my level of achiness and helps me maintain flexibility. I highly recommend Mary's services.


Fitness goals vary per individuals. We have members who have specific goals in mind – getting in shape to run a 5K, or go on an adventure vacation with family, where others are trying to lose weight or keep in shape to avoid joint replacement surgery. Some folks are trying to make sure their new joints function as best as possible, and they stay active. Whatever your goal, our trainers will work with you to help you achieve realistic goals, in and out of the gym.


Some of our members choose to use a trainer because it helps them make an appointment to make sure fitness is part of their busy schedule. When working with a trainer, they will put you through a workout, customized to you, to help you reach your goals, or simply stay fit and active.

Many folks like the one-on-one attention they get with a trainer, forming a partnership for their long term health and wellness. A trainer is like having a personal coach, focused on helping you be the best you can be. Having trainers who know how to help push you to make the most out of your workouts without feeling like a drill sergeant at basic training is important to us.
