What people are saying: “Thanks for your seminar last night. I thought it was very informative, but I was a bit skeptical about how much difference the stretches demonstrated would make? So this morning I went through the stretches your showed and started to run. I immediately felt the difference. Each step feels lighter than normal. I guess it’s because I “woke-up” the sleeping muscles, so now the work is more evenly distributed. And by the end of the 3 miles, I virtually did not feel and pain in my joints. So there it goes, I am sold on your routine.”-Thanks, Johnny Kong
