Frequently Asked Questions
What are the points for?
There are two main types of points you can earn: personal and friend points. Personal points include:
- Stretch time. You earn 1 point for every minute you stretch.
- Consecutive days. You earn 1 point for every consecutive day you stretch.
- Consecutive weeks. You earn a bonus 100 points for every 7 days you stretch in a row.
- Active challenges. You earn 1 point per day for each unique person you are in a challenge with.
- Friend points. You earn friend points when you are in an active challenge. Regardless of the challenge workout time, you will earn 1 point for each minute your challenger stretched. For example, if your active challenge is for 15 minutes daily, but your friend only stretched 10 minutes, you will earn 10 points. Likewise, if they stretch for 30 minutes, you will earn 30 friend points.
Help! I lost my stretching streak!
Life happens. If you wake up and realize you missed stretching yesterday (which is incredibly devestating when you're near 100 days in a row!), Ada will offer a chance to buy back your streak. It's available the moment you have 7+ consecutive days, but ONLY available for the day after you missed. E.g. Say you're at 27 days in a row and the next day you wake up to pure chaos. You forget to stretch, which will reset your streak back to 1. If you get the Missed Day Token, your tally will continue as if yesterday didn't exist, as long as you remember to stretch today. (Meaning, you'll be at day 28, NOT day 29.)
How does WeStretch help with pain?
A lot of pain stems from inflammation and muscle tightness, among other things. When you stretch, you allow your blood to flow to the areas of concern, which clears out the old blood, supplies additional nutrients and oxygen to the afflicted areas, and allows the muscles to release their tension. Our goal at WeStretch is to help you stretch every joint in every direction, covering muscles that you might have missed in your own exercise. While you might notice your pain lessened after one stretching session, the improvements will become greater the more regularly you stretch!

What makes WeStretch different from other stretching apps?
WeStretch is the only app that merges the science of kinesiology and the foundations of yoga and Pilates into a daily guided health and wellness stretching routine using artificial intelligence. Since we knew how boring and repetitive many stretching routines can be, our algorithms are designed to ensure that you are constantly stretching different muscles and joints. You may notice that you only stretch one side during a routine- that was on purpose! You will stretch the opposite side in one of your next routines, but this keeps variety in each of your stretching sessions! WeStretch was designed with the help of a physiotherapist, so you can rest assured that every pose is safe to do and will help you feel your best!
