Accelerated Flexibility Training

In 2004, I had one of the biggest hit to my confidence or ego! Imagine a 23 year old young man (me), just out of army as a Physical Training Instructor and walking into a Pilates Class for the 1st time (full of ladies), thinking he is going to ace every exercise thrown at him. It did not help that at that same class of 10 people, 3 of them were dancers. It also did not help that I was sandwiched between 2 of them. I was lying on my back, with my right leg straight up in the air. The requirement was that my right leg in the air has to be straight and at a 90 degree angle in my hip. It was the 1st time I felt an earthquake in my thighs. My teacher, Alvin, keep saying "Straighten your knees!" I know he must have been just referring to me because the 2 ladies beside me had legs as straight as an arrow. They were calm and collected. I was trembling like crazy and raining cats and dogs. I turned to 1 of the lady beside and asked "Is it tough on your thighs?" She answered "No, it's very relaxing." I realised it was because I was not flexible.

Fast forward to 2019, my client Katherine remarked "You are lucky to be flexible!" I looked at her with a straight face and said "It was not luck. It was a result of training!" When it comes to flexibility training, I know almost every person wants to become flexible instantly. Any advice to improve flexibility is always taken upon highly if that advice is given by people who were flexible. In my own quest to become more flexible from the 2004 days, I have heard different types of advice from flexible people. Actually a lot of these advices were not necessarily useful in helping me or my students become a lot more flexible. After studying Flexibility extensively, I realised flexibility training is not just about stretching a lot. In fact:

  1. Your body type matters.
  2. Your concept of what improves flexibility must come from an evidence based approach versus trial and error.
  3. How you release your tension matters.
  4. How you make use of your reflexes matters
  5. The tools you use has to be appropriate for you.
  6. The type of stretch has to match your level of flexibility.

If you are someone who has really tight muscles and want to become a lot more flexible, come to my workshop. I understand the pains of stretching and the journey it takes to get there. I'm not flexible to begin with, so my way of teaching you how to become flexible is not "Go stretch everyday!" or "Stretch for as long as you can". Being flexible and being able to teach flexibility are 2 separate things. I highly encourage you to learn from someone who has been in the same position as you did, tried everything he could and overcame all obstacles to become a lot more flexible. I am such a Teacher.

I created Accelerated Flexibility Training because I am passionate about helping people who are not flexible experience massive results in Stretching. Moreover my teaching skills in flexibility was honed by learning from the best teachers in the world. For this workshop, my assistant for this workshop, Vera, would be sharing with you how you can take clear steps to dramatically improve how you stretch. She'll also share with you how the PowerPlate can improve your stretch results and let you experience the feeling of increased flexibility in shorter time. My mission in life is to teach and inspire people to make changes to improve their quality of life. Let this workshop that I have created be part of your journey to become more flexible.

Vera’s ambition is to never stop learning, so as to experience and create enduring change.

Attracted to the control and enhanced awareness that Pilates instilled in her own body since she came across the discipline in a ballet class, Vera has since become more confident and adventurous in her choice of activities like rock climbing, salsa, longboarding and even boxing.

As a movement teacher, her goal is to improve her students’ body awareness and to help them be precise in their actions – to have control over their muscles and to train for efficient movement.

She has worked with students with foot, knee, hip, lower back, wrist and elbow, shoulder and neck pain, and believes that the first step for anyone with injury is to get out of pain. By working on corrective movement and resolving muscular imbalances, Vera wants to establish movement confidence in every single person she meets.

She is excited to help people move fearlessly, to get out of pain and to become fitter and stronger.

"To become a lot more flexible, you must stop stretching in the same way that did not bring you results.
