Attend Certifications / Weekend Intensives

Our trainings are designed to provide an entry-level education of all principles involved in Bob Cooley's Resistance Flexibility. They are open to all ages, abilities, and levels of experience. The only prerequisite is an interest!

Certifications / Weekend Trainings

Out trainings are a great way to be introduced to RF for personal or professional gain. They are physically demanding, but everyone works at their own pace. Variations are taught for every exercise allowing people of all ages and abilities to fully participate.

Attend one of our trainings to be introduced to our community of people that develop each other's health through assisted stretching and the sharing of perspective. Many people attend a weekend course with a friend so that they have someone to practice assisted stretching with.
