"NASM’s Stretching and Flexibility Coach course is a fantastic complement to any certification or credential. It offers a comprehensive, in-depth exploration of integrated stretching techniques and the critical role they can play not only in the body’s ability to express flexibility, move without compensation, and recover optimally from stress. I thoroughly enjoyed reviewing the variety of techniques I can utilize and apply with all my clients. The SFC course is another great addition to my toolbox and has had an immediate positive impact on my clients’ experience and results!"

"One of the many things I love about NASM is that there is always a desire to not only review the latest research to ensure that all of NASM's courses provide fitness professionals with the best available information, but they also look for new ways to help fitness professionals add new skills in order to advance their careers. The Stretching and Flexibility Coach course will allow personal trainers to expand on their knowledge of assessments and the flexibility principles within the OPT Model to now provide hands-on stretching techniques to their clients. This additional skill set will allow NASM fitness professionals to take their abilities to another level."
