She founded the Stretch to Win Center, where she, her husband Chris, and other staff offered Fascial Stretch Therapy, physical therapy, Pilates, sport massage, chiropractic care, and acupuncture. Ann and Chris have since founded the Stretch to Win Institute, where professionals in health, fitness, and sports can get certified in LifeStretch and Fascial Stretch Therapy--two therapy techniques that they created.

FLEXIBILITY BIBLE! Need I say more? Stretch to Win and fascia mobility training (FMT) are what the sports medicine, rehab, fitness, and training industries have been missing. Ann and Chris Frederick are truly pioneers in fascial research. From their decades of experience and research, not only do they break down the fascial system both anatomically and physiologically, but they also explain its vital role in training and functional movement. They have made it possible, for those who may not be well versed, to have a strong understanding of fascia and its function. Stretch to Win is an absolute must read for any athlete, trainer, coach, therapist, or instructor. In my opinion, FMT has the potential to bring all elements of training together. With FMT as an additional component to your training, you (or your athletes/clients) are bound for peak performance. This brilliant second edition also provides a complete fascial mobility assessment (CFMA) that teaches how to self-assess and train for flexibility. The CFMA equips the athlete or trainer with the tools to enhance flexibility and sport-specific mobility, both quickly and exponentially. Also included are detailed instructions and pictures of fundamental stretches. Definitely invest in this groundbreaking literature! --Hannah, stretch therapist and flexibility trainer, FST certified Stretch to Win is a must have for anyone looking to increase their mobility and flexibility: athletes from all walks of life, weekend warriors, gym goers, your average person with a desk job looking to get moving. Ann and Chris Frederick's knowledge of the fascial system and how stretching affects not one area but the entire fascial net makes reading this book a pleasure and a great learning experience. The self-assessment is very clear and concise, making it easy to follow. By using this assessment, instructions along with photos, and explanations about different stretching methods and tempo, you can tailor-make a program that will have a real effect on your training and/or daily living. The other great thing about this book is that Chris Frederick also has posted videos of the programs to help with better understanding of the movements. This book is well worth the investment. --Cindy
