Meet the Author

Ann Frederick is the director of flexibility training for the Stretch to Win Clinic, where she has worked with many elite athletes, including Philadelphia Eagles star quarterback Donovan McNabb and numerous Olympians and members of the NFL, MLB, and NHL. Ann was the first flexibility specialist ever to work at the Olympics, consulting with the 1996 U.S. wrestling team and both the 2000 and 2004 U.S. track teams.

For more than 35 years, Ann has studied, performed, and taught movement through multiple dance disciplines. In 1997, upon completion of her studies, Frederick defended her master's thesis and established that her stretching technique outperformed conventional methods with lasting flexibility gains of 36 to 52 percent. She continually refined and improved these techniques, which ultimately developed into the Stretch To Win system of flexibility training and stretching. Today, professional athletes and Olympians from all over the world use this system to achieve higher levels of performance.

Ann is a member of the International Association of Structural Integrators and is part of the associate faculty at Arizona State University.

Chris Frederick is the director of sports and orthopedic rehabilitation at the Stretch to Win Clinic. After an injury sidelined his professional dance career, Chris went on to receive his degree in manual orthopedic physical therapy from Hunter College, City University of New York. To get a well-rounded background in many disciplines, Chris trained privately with several master physical therapists, rolfers, chiropractors, osteopaths, two chi kung and tai chi masters, and an Olympic strength coach.

As a result of his education and training, Chris lends a nontraditional, complementary approach to flexibility training, physical therapy, sport rehabilitation, and fitness. Using the Stretch To Win system of flexibility training and stretching, he has designed many effective injury-prevention programs for both professional and collegiate athletes and sport teams as well as professional dancers and dance companies. Chris is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association, the International Association of Structural Integrators, and the International Association of Dance, Medicine and Science.

The Fredericks are also renowned international speakers and codirectors of the International Institute of Flexibility Sciences located in Tempe, Arizona. There, they train and certify professionals to become flexibility specialists who may use the Stretch To Win system to enhance their current careers. The Fredericks are dedicated to advancing the emerging field of flexibility sciences by promoting and engaging in research on connective tissue and related topics.

The Fredericks reside in Tempe, Arizona.

    I Also Recommend:

    It's not what you think.

    I purchased this book thinking that it was an objective look at the use of stretching to aid in athletic performance. After about 5 pages in I realized that it is the subjective account of two "professionals" Stretch To Win Program. Granted the basis of their program does have some credibility, but this book is too specific to the program itself. I would also consider some of the information "common sense" and other information not generalized enough for novices. It's like wanting to purchase a book about general Nutrition and Dieting and ending up with The Atkins Diet. It does have some good stretching exercises though, which is why I even gave it a rating at all.

    Highly recommend especially for those looking for a thorough and systematic approach

    This the third copy of this book I have purchased. I got the Nook version so that I would stop giving it to friends and not getting it back. As soomeone who already has most of the information in this book in at least two other refernces, I still like the organizatioin and simplicity of the methodology used in this book. I first got it at least 5 years ago because I wanted a good source for dynamic stretching. I will still use it when I am setting up a new program for myself and others that I advise.
