Both Active and Passive Flexibility Training
The most amazing part about Coach Sommer’s protocols is the sheer attention to detail. Each muscle and joint is given love by being moved through healthy ranges of motion. To accomplish this, both active and passive flexibility are incorporated into the GB Stretch Courses, ensuring your body isn’t just able to get into a position but is also free to MOVE in and out of it.

The results of conditioning your body from head to toe is nothing short of profound! Aside from being relaxing, the Stretch Sessions will help you to quickly notice nagging tension, and even pain, disappear. Stretching will also open your shoulders, chest, hips, and other commonly restricted areas, improving your posture. These positive changes start a chain reaction: you’ll notice a shift in your body language, confidence levels, and motivation to explore additional healthy activities! Stretching is a floodgate of goodness…what are you waiting for?!?
Balancing Movement and Range of Motion
Mobility is also what separates those who are flexible from other athletes! Their bodies conveniently travel through full ranges with ease, and it all stems from their range of motion. Essentially, the sooner you start stretching, the quicker you’ll become a complete athlete, free to move through the field of play in any way you desire.
Tactful mobilization will also counteract the consequences of repetitive movement so you can enjoy your favorite activities without worry. Running, weightlifting, outdoor adventuring, or whatever else you love can be carried out with confidence. Stretching is also an excellent way to recover and get ready for the next workout or training session. When you increase your blood flow, you’ll notice reduced soreness while your body stays loose and limber.
