Many, many clients need to improve their range-of-motion (ROM). Insufficient ROM is a major cause of back pain (guess how
many of your clients experience back pain). Initially, many clients need more help with increasing ROM than they do with
increasing strength. Plus, recent research by Dr. Wayne Westcott proves that combining strengthening exercises with
stretching exercises dramatically increases fat loss (by approximately 33%). What will your clients pay you to increase
fat loss by 33%? Increase your value to your clients and increase your profits.
