WELCOME TO STRETCH-N-GROW
Stretch-n-Grow International (founded in 1992), is the world's largest network of certified youth fitness professionals! We specialize in providing enrichment programs in schools that get kids' bodies AND minds moving with high quality, educational, fun, and creative exercise experiences!
Stretch-n-Grow of Lake Norman was established in 2013 by Kris Viruso, a former preschool teacher with a passion for sharing her love of health and wellness with children and families of Lake Norman. In 2019, the business was purchased by Lisa Kiral of Mooresville, a fitness and nutrition enthusiast, with a love for helping others become healthy, while developing an appreciation for their bodies.
"As a mom of three daughters, I am committed to ensuring our students are learning about exercise and healthy eating in a way that encourages a positive body image and a mindset of keeping exercise fun and exciting through play and creativity!"

Finding the right mix of talent, energy and dependability is no joke for directors. Stretch-n-Grow prioritizes our talent search and strives to be the BEST at attracting, training and retaining great talent to teach and coach your kids. Our schools RAVE about the impact our staff brings to their kids.
Our school partners have an amazing educational curriculum, but they know the benefits of out-sourcing their enrichment classes to Stretch-n-Grow. You want programs that line up with state and national standards and deliver the outcomes that parents expect and kids need. No matter what class experience our coaches are delivering, we aim to get kids moving – and that helps with focus, self-control, improved academic performance and better health!
OUR CORE VALUES
Our values drive us to serve our school partners and families with uncompromising integrity and unmatched energy with an unswerving commitment to delivering the best programs in the best places by the best people. We are a faith-based, service-driven community of educators who value and honor the trust our customers place on us.
