About Stretch-n-Grow of Houston Heights

My name is Jami Adams, and I’m the owner of Stretch-n-Grow of Houston Heights. I’ve grown up in Texas and have been here almost my entire life.

My husband and I have been married since the Spring of 2020 (no better time to get married than in a pandemic, right?) We have 2 young boys that keep us on our toes, and although handling it all can be intimidating, we have enjoyed the challenges of navigating parenthood and business ownership these past few years!

As for why I am passionate fitness, I was a multi-sport athlete through all of high school but decided against playing volleyball in college and decided to stay home and start working; and it just so happened I started working for another Stretch-n-Grow owner, my mom!

My mom started her own Stretch-n-Grow in the suburbs of Houston, Texas in 2006; and I was so fortunate to see the hard work that has gone into owning and operating a successful business. I eat, sleep and breathe Stretch-n-Grow for that reason!

Now with my own family to leave a legacy for, I am so excited to be bringing Stretch-n-Grow to The Heights, Oak Forest and Spring Branch Areas!

About Stretch-n-Grow International

Stretch-n-Grow was conceived in January of 1992 by Jill and Bob Manly, with a plan to conduct classes on a local level only in their home town of Galveston, Texas. The simple concept of providing a comprehensive fitness program at an early, impressionable age grew quickly into an impressive world-wide network of dedicated, talented people with the common goal of building a successful organization that has a positive impact on the health and fitness of young children.

Stretch-n-Grow is a family and faith-based company. Jill’s daughter Amanda Hollowell joined the company shortly after the birth of Jill and Bob’s daughter Megan in July 1992, and currently serves as Chief Operating Officer. Megan joined the team after graduating from the University of South Florida in 2016 and serves as Vice President while also managing her own Stretch-n-Grow in St. Petersburg, FL.

And here is the “happy ending” to this story: there are now millions of Stretch-n-Grow “Stars” around the world learning to enjoy a healthy lifestyle while building a foundation of fitness and well-being!
