FASCIA STRETCHING THERAPY
Body by Choice Training | Grand Rapids, MI
The three-dimensional web of connective tissue that permeates and connects all of your body’s structures together — and is the most important factor affecting your ﬂexibility — is called fascia. More about the fascial system >
If you begin to lose ﬂexibility your joints will deteriorate, your posture worsens, your physical appearance changes, muscular imbalances develop and you become more prone to pain and injury from simple actions. Our bodies lose ﬂexibility at an average rate of one percent per year!
Daily aches, pains and fatigue that seem to have no obvious cause could be the result of prolonged and accumulated restrictions in your fascial system.
Unlike traditional stretching, fascial stretching therapy can dramatically improve your ﬂexibility by decompressing your joints and unwinding the connective tissue throughout your body.*
Lack of ﬂexibility and general tightness can cause aches and pains and can signiﬁcantly affect your health and longevity.
Fascia, when tight, can restrict range of motion and impair quality of movement.
The fascial stretching therapy program at Body By Choice can enhance recovery after hard workouts and improve performance by optimizing soft tissue mobility and increasing range of motion.
When you are ready to improve your ﬂexibility with fascial stretching therapy, or to set up your free ﬁtness consultation with one of our personal trainers, please contact us here or call 616.259.9064.

This unique concept was created and pioneered by Chris and Ann Fredericks . Over the years, they have enjoyed an incredible level of success, including working as Stretch Coaches at three Super Bowls.
The Arizona-based couple got a real kick out of working with members of the Arizona Cardinals at the 2009 Super Bowl. They have also worked at a variety of NCAA track championships and have been part of three Olympic Games. Some of the many professional athletes that have beneﬁted from FST™ include; Donovan McNabb, Quarterback, Philadelphia Eagles; Sanya Richards, 2004, 2008, 2012 Olympic 4×400-meter relay gold medalist and 2012 400 meter gold medal; and Mike Tyson, former undisputed world heavyweight boxing champion.
I would give six stars if I could! I cannot recommend BBCT highly enough. This place has a nice private atmosphere which is perfect for someone like me who is still early on in their fitness journey. I never feel self conscious or judged by anyone which can be a big fear for a newbie. I work with Stephanie and she is AWESOME!! If you can laugh with someone at 6am while you're pushing through a tough workout then they're doing something right! If there's something that she introduces that needs to modified, she can show you different ways to do it which is great. She's good at giving you the "why" behind what we're doing. I also enjoy the check-ins with Tiffny - she has a ton of knowledge on how your body is processing not only the food we consume but also products we interact with daily. I am definitely loyal to BBCT now and in the future. Honestly it's not even near where I live and work and it's so worth it to drive out there. I could not have started this fitness journey without them.
I play professional hockey in Europe and I chose Body by Choice because of the elite level training programs they offer to athletes. I worked primarily with Nick and his colleague Kolby who are both very knowledgeable. Nick set up a personal program for me including diet, supplementation and a strength and conditioning routine that helped me reach my goals. In only 10 weeks I dropped 4% total body fat and put on 13 pounds of lean muscle. If you are serious about your sport and live in the Grand Rapids area you need to give them a call. I highly recommend Body by Choice.
Weekly training sessions at BBCT over the last year have been a crucial part to my strength development and lean muscle gain! Taylor's motivation and careful program planning has kept me focused and allowed me to realize my body's full capabilities as she pushes me for one more rep - something I would've given up on if I were by myself. Up until a year ago, I have always just trained individually and certainly continue to do so, but have found that even a weekly session has been incredibly beneficial with regards to reaching my fitness goals.
12 weeks ago, I joined BBC to gain strength and lose fat. I had major surgery in July of last year that left me very week. I met with Nick and put a plan together for nutrition and exercise with measurable goals. I’ve worked very hard under the watchful eye of Ann Marie, and met all my goals. I not only don’t want to lose what I gained, I want to take it to the next level. All of the staff at BBC are so supportive, it really is something I look forward to. I never dreamed that at 62, surviving lung cancer, I’d be in the best shape of my life. So now I reach higher. Great facility, people and program.
