Company Information

Jennifer Hansel is the owner of Stretch-n-Grow of Winston-Salem (and the Triad).  Jennifer has been teaching children in child care centers, preschools, home daycares, and other facilities about the importance of fitness and healthy nutrition since 1997.  Currently, Stretch-n-Grow employs three other teachers, all of whom are Certified Youth Fitness Instructors.  Together the four employees have over 60 years experience working with children.   

All of us at Stretch-n-Grow of Winston-Salem (and the Triad) are passionate about teaching children the importance of fitness, and instilling healthy habits at a young age!

Our 30 to 40 minute classes consist of good exercise habits and aerobic exercise - warm-up to cool-down, and conditioning muscles of the entire body. We end each class with a discussion covering our health topic of the week.  This might include the names of our muslces, our bones, healthy food choices, or proper hygiene. . Children receive a weekly handout that can be colored and shared with parents to keep them informed of the specific exercises and health topics.

The mission of Stretch-n-Grow of Winston-Salem (and the Triad) is the same as that of Stretch-n-Grow International:

  • To teach as many children as possible the basics of proper exercise, nutrition, and related health issues.
  • To establish patterns and positive attitude at an early age that will be the foundation for a lifetime of healthy habits.
  • To prepare children for participation in physical education and athletic programs.
  • To provide parents, caregivers, and educators of young children with current information concerning proper exercise, nutrition, and other related issues in an effort to encourage each family to participate in a fitness program.
  • To build a strong, profitable company that operates with integrity and dedication to our mission, our employees, and the families we serve.
Our extensive curriculum was developed under the supervision of an advisory board made up of pediatricians, nutritionists, and educators. All of our exercises comply with the Youth Fitness Guidelines established by the American Fitness and Aerobics Association and American Council on Exercise - the two leading authorities in group fitness today.

I have been with SNG for 5 years now. I love being able to share with the children different exercises and experimenting with different equipment. Each week, I am able to share with the children and staff new ways to get healthy and to grow. SNG is an excellent program and I am so glad to be able to be part of it.
