I will use this information for clients who are active in golf, tennis and other sports that really need upper body flexibility; and can use the programming for clients who have issues with their posture. I’m really glad I got this program. The pictures were really helpful regarding the bad postures so I can recognize them immediately in clients and be able to fix them.
