I helped Kerrie! …and I can help you too
For over 20 years I’ve been helping people achieve their health and fitness goals; and recently I was working with a young lady who was sick and tired of tight muscles and stiff joints. She wanted to learn a few new stretches and improve her flexibility.
Kerrie had tried a few things in the past, but nothing worked for any longer than a day or two. Her tight muscles and stiff joints had got to the point where it was difficult to sit in one spot for any period of time; so Kerrie decided to get some help.
After talking with Kerrie we decided to add a general stretching routine to her daily workout and a few additional stretches both before and after playing tennis. (That’s me on the right, working with Kerrie in one of our one-on-one sessions.)
Within a few days of using my breakthrough stretching techniques Kerrie’s general flexibility improved considerably. We then went on to incorporate a number of specific stretches to further increase the flexibility of her back and surrounding muscles like the hamstrings and shoulders.
The improvements over the next couple of weeks were remarkable. No more pain. No more tight muscles and stiff joints. No more straining to bend down. And best of all, she could now play tennis without her lower back tightening up and her legs getting sore and tired.
Optimum health and peak performance…
“(Brad’s book is) an excellent, important guide to optimum health and peak performance. Read, learn, implement and enjoy the benefits of wellness and enhanced quality of life.” Dr Denis Waitley (PhD)
I make it super simple to understand
As I said earlier, I’ve been helping people achieve their health and fitness goals for a long time, and a few years ago I noticed that a lot of the problems people were coming to me for could be easily fixed with a simple stretching program.
So I started to look for an easy-to-use guide to stretching. A book that took stretching seriously with a detailed list and picture of every possible stretch a person can do. In my search I found many books where stretching got a mention, but nothing more than a page or two of vague generalizations and a few stick figures performing some very basic stretches.
I couldn’t believe there was nothing available for the average person. That’s when I decided to write the Ultimate Guide to Stretching & Flexibility.
Don’t Get Me Wrong… This Ain’t No Whimsy Book About Plain Stretching!
Unlike guides with only hand drawings or stick figures, the Ultimate Guide includes real photos of real people showing you exactly how each stretch works!
Take a look at some of the pictures on the right, which are taken straight out of book.
You DON’T need any special, costly equipment or training to make the most of your workouts, maximize your performance, and get rid of those annoying, nagging pains you can never seem to do away with!
Best of all, you can implement my techniques in just a few minutes as part of your regular workout or warm-up routine.
The Ultimate Guide to Stretching is one of the only books available today to contain photographs (not diagrams, cartoons or illustrations) of 135 unique, individual stretches. Yes, one hundred and thirty five!
And I mean 135 unique, individual stretches: Not 5 variations of 20 stretches, but 135 different stretches.
Each stretch targets a specific muscle group, and comes with a clear, high quality photograph, as well as a step-by-step description of exactly how the stretch is performed. No room for guessing!
My techniques boost performance and cut recovery time by days
The Ultimate Guide to Stretching & Flexibility teaches everything you need to know to maximize your workouts and minimize your injuries. You’ll discover how muscles react to exercise, and why your muscles get sore after a workout. Plus 9 important types of stretching to help prevent sports injury and put a stop to post exercise muscle soreness.
This information will keep you injury-FREE and on top of your game. With the Ultimate Guide, you get all the information you need to maximize your workout, including:
I recommend it to my patients…
“Up to now, while there has been a plethora of books about, ‘How to…….’, ‘The benefits of…….’ exercise, there has not been much advice offered regarding stretching. I believe your book fills that gap very well. Stretching is a very important and often neglected part of exercise. I congratulate you on your efforts and look forward to recommending your publication to my patients.” Dr John Flynn (M.B., B.S.)
Well laid out and user friendly
“The acceptance of the importance of flexibility and stretching for sport is commonplace, but appropriate and accessible information for athletes and coaches to use, is not always easy to find. The Stretching Handbook is designed to be a very portable and quick reference for athletes and coaches rather than an academic reference. To this end it is a very practical text with concise chapters written in an easy to read manner but without being punctuated by research findings or scientific references.”
“Overall, The Stretching Handbook is well laid out, user friendly and very suitable for athletes and developing coaches. It is a welcome addition to the limited number of texts which deal with stretching for sport.” Angela Calder
I had no idea stretching was so important…
“The Ultimate Guide to Stretching has given me a greater understanding and appreciation of the importance of stretching. After reading the Ultimate Guide my coach and I decided to write specific stretching time into my program, thus taking stretching far more seriously. It is definitely a book that anybody wanting to exercise and even more so, elite athletes, should have by their side.” Greg Bennett
The workout optimization and injury prevention “Bible”
The Ultimate Guide is the book you keep with you wherever you go. It’s great to refer to when you need information or a photograph of a particular stretch for any part of the body. It’s a complete reference handbook that assists in the planning and implementation of your training and rehabilitation sessions.
That’s why the Ultimate Guide has gained a reputation as being one of the most user-friendly publications on stretching, flexibility and sports injury prevention on the market today! So what does that mean to YOU?
It means you don’t have to struggle with medical jargon or complex data that only drives you further away from your goal, or takes hours to learn. The tips and techniques you’ll learn don’t come from textbooks or long-winded academic references, but from years of experience with world-class amateur and professional athletes!
Bottom-line, it is an absolute “must have” guide for anybody wanting to improve their athletic performance and eradicate muscle pain for good. Here’s what’s included…
