BeschreibungFor more than a decade, the Stretch to Win system has been used by many elite athletes. Now, the same stretching matrix used by the pros is available for coaches and athletes looking to reach a higher level of performance.
PortraitAnn Frederick developed her Stretch To Win System of Flexibility Training and Stretching based on her academic interest in Human Movement and more than thirty years experience in multiple dance disciplines. She uses her techniques on many professional athletes- including some of those who competed in the 2004 Olympics. Previously a professional dancer and martial arts practitioner, Chris Frederick began to pursue a career in Physical Therapy. Whilst training with Ann Frederick he collaborated with her to develop stretching techniques that greatly improve recovery from injury and surgery.
