Routines and Tutorials

Trainer helping a client with shoulder mobilityOnce you understand some of the theories behind stretching and you have a good sense of the approaches that will best fit your needs, the next step, of course, is to put things into action.

We’ve put together routines and tutorials for some of the most common flexibility concerns that people have shared with us over the years. Some of these tutorials are geared toward rather specific goals but you can pick and choose what speaks to you.

Case Studies

Progression of a splits techniqueSince releasing Focused Flexibility in 2012, we’ve worked with over 30,000 clients on improving their mobility. We’ve had great success with helping thousands of people free their bodies so they’re not held back by restrictions. And, as of April 2020, weโ€™ve replaced it with GMB Mobility, a new approach which combines the targeted stretching of FF with more dynamic work and movement integration for even more effective practice.

The following are just a couple of examples of some of the incredible results our clients have gotten through using our methods.

You can see more results through the videos we share on our Facebook page or on our testimonials page.
