Instructor for the Stretch To Win Institute
2001 I have been in the Fitness Industry of which my first 8 years were as a
personal trainer focusing on Corrective Exercise & Functional Training. It
was during this time that I realized that there was a lack of information and
understanding about proper stretching. Of course everyone did some form of
stretching but it was all based on what was taught decades ago before 2000. In
2009 I found my answer and it was at the Stretch to Win Institute here in
Arizona and it is called
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a form of assisted stretching based
on science that was developed by Ann Frederick at ASU in the early 90’s. It took me 3 years to complete my training in
Fascial Stretch Therapy and to become a Level 3 Certified Flexibility Specialist.
In 2011 I was selected and trained by my mentors to become an instructor for the Stretch to Win Institute and by 2013 my teaching career began. Which consists of one week out of every month.
When I'm not teaching FST at the Stretch to Win Institute, I am passionately working with my own private clientele base which is a mix of
professional & amateur athletes, business professionals and your everyday
hard working person.

1 – They want to feel better with less aches & pains in their body.
2 – They are an athlete and want to perform their best.
3 – Injury prevention and to feel younger.
4 – It's part of their health plan.

The Goal of Fascial Stretch Therapy

"If we train MOVEMENT,
muscles will never be forgotten.
If we train MUSCLES,
movement is sure to be forgotten"

Fascial Stretch Therapy
Is Not Painful
Is Not Static Stretching
It Is Not The Same Each Session
Stretch Therapy is not about trying to make you do the splits, now if that's your goal sure we can focus on that.
Stretch Therapy is about restoring and maintaining healthy movement in your Body & Joints thereby improving daily life activities and or sports.
A body that moves better has greater performance, less soreness, stiffness and reduced pain.
Sure everyone knows they need to stretch but do you know which parts of your body to target? Hint: it's not always where you feel tight!!!
Do you still do the normal static stretching and hold for 30-60 seconds?
Does your stretching just focus on the symptoms or does it address the root cause?
When was the last time you woke up in the morning and your back did not hurt?
How long has it been since you were able to be active without pain?
How many months have you been dealing with discomfort?
"When you have adjusted the physical to its normal demands, nature supplies the remainder"
- Dr Andrew Still, Founder of Osteopathic Medicine
