Ann Frederick is the director of flexibility training for the Stretch to Win Clinic, where she has worked with many elite athletes, including Philadelphia Eagles star quarterback Donovan McNabb and numerous Olympians and members of the NFL, MLB, and NHL. Ann was the first flexibility specialist ever to work at the Olympics, consulting with the 1996 U.S. wrestling team and both the 2000 and 2004 U.S. track teams. For more than 35 years, Ann has studied, performed, and taught movement through multiple dance disciplines. In 1997, upon completion of her studies, Frederick defended her master's thesis and established that her stretching technique outperformed conventional methods with lasting flexibility gains of 36 to 52 percent. She continually refined and improved these techniques, which ultimately developed into the Stretch to Win system of flexibility training and stretching.
