F.A.S.T. Stretching Certification
When you become a F.A.S.T. Stretching Professional, you’ll possess the knowledge and skills to unlock any movement or flexibility issues your clients may have.
Stretching and flexibility are non-existent in most fitness programs. As a trainer, your only goal is to make your clients stronger--which could lead to tightness and muscle imbalances. This leads to pain, setbacks in their training, or injuries due to tight and weak muscles. And it’s no secret, as your clients get older, they may recover slower from workouts, and have more aches and pains--thanks, in part, to a loss of flexibility.
And for most trainers, manual therapy is off limits--and out of your normal scope of practice. But when you become a certified F.A.S.T. Stretching Professional , you can help your clients:
Decrease Muscle Stiffness
Increase range-of-motion in their joints
Reduce the risk for injury--from training or just living life
Improve their posture--so they move better, with less tightness or soreness
Reduce and better manage stress
Decrease muscle tension and promote better relaxation in their muscles
Decrease muscle pain--especially in their lower backs
Not everyone knows the importance of stretching--and how it can improve their overall stiffness and pain. So most of your clients look to you for answers…
This is why I created the F.A.S.T. Stretching Professional Certification--to help current and future fitness professionals raise the standard of care for clients everywhere.
When I first started in the fitness industry, I wanted to do everything—and I put the needs of my clients first. One area I noticed many of my clients were lacking in was flexibility.
Not only were trainers NOT stretching their clients…
Those who were either did it wrong…or stretched to a point of pain. I had enough…
So I decided to work with a small group of clients to improve their flexibility and eliminate common complaints, like soreness, aches, and tightness. As each client progressed through my PBS Stretching System, they reported fewer aches and pains…
And they felt better than they had in years. Following the exact principles I have put into this certification, I was able to build multiple 6-figure businesses—with $50,000+ of Profit coming directly from the stretching program I implemented..
You may be asking:
A lot of trainers would like to start a stretching program—but they are unsure how to fully implement this into their training program. Because, after all, most don’t hold a certification for manual therapy, so they are either:
-> Relying on YouTube or other channels to educate them on the right way to do the stretches—which often are still done incorrectly…
-> Only doing the BASIC stretches—which may not help their clients move and feel better…
-> Doing the WRONG stretches—which aggravates previous injuries, or creates new injuries, leading to a more tightness and imbalances, and a higher lost clients
This is why the Level 1 Stretching Pro Certification is so valuable. You’re going to learn first-hand, the right way to stretch your clients, and build a solid stretching foundation…
So you can safely help your clients reach their fitness and wellness goals.
If you’re a trainer, strength coach, gym owner, or nutrition coach--you’ll benefit from the F.A.S.T. Stretching Professional Certification course.
Take the guesswork of what stretches will work--or what will hinder your clients…
No more second guessing if this stretch is out of your “scope of practice”...
And NO PhD is required--as everything is in easily digestible videos--so you can implement what you’re learning right away with your clients.

how to properly assess your clients...and the exact method I’ve used for the last 14 years to help my clients regain their mobility and flexibility.
