As an Olympic athlete my success depends on my body and health.
I met Jeff Alexander after being out of training for 3 weeks with a hip and back injury that I got during a USRowing training camp down in San Diego. I needed to get back to training as soon as possible and my friends at CrossFit Endurance introduced me to Jeff. Jeff and his wife Carolyn were gracious enough to take 4 hours out of their Sunday morning to help me find the muscular solutions to my injury by using Jeff’s Self Myofascial Release techniques and Trigger Point Therapy tools.
Not only did Jeff address my current problems and weaknesses, he also thoroughly educated me on how to prevent other frequent injuries I’ve had in my rowing career such as low back injuries, sub scapula dysfunction and broken ribs. Jeff has an amazing wealth of knowledge about the active body and I feel very fortunate to have worked with him. I would recommend anyone from professional athletes who depend on their body for their livelihood to weekend warriors who deal with chronic pain to schedule a session with Jeff and become a student of Jeff’s Self Myofascial Release Techniques and their body.
I am a healthier and more body-conscience aware athlete now because of Jeff and Trigger Point Therapy.

I can't thank you enough for the Trigger point therapy workshops!
I set a goal 1 year ago to fix my newly acquired scoliosis. I attended several of your workshops and did my 'homework' at home.
1 year later, my scoliosis is completely gone! It worked!
I acquired the scoliosis after sitting in a brace for 1 year following back surgery (front and back spinal fusion.... you'll see all the metal in the picture). For 1 year I sat at the table in a reclined position working on my computer and reading favoring my right side. After 1 year I had definite scoliosis. I was so upset at my doctor appt 1 yr ago that I did not take a picture of my x ray. Well, here is my picture from this year and you can see my spine is straight! (and completely fused by the way).
Thanks again, you are a God send!

I wanted to thank you for the help at the shoulder clinic.
My shoulder flexibility has improved a lot so far and my OHS has gone up in just the last two weeks. My 1RM OHS was 145#. Yesterday I was able to do this weight for 8 reps and was able to OHS 165#.
I am now close to my goal of 10 reps at my body weight (145#).

When I first came to you with my tendinitis issues I couldn't do anything active; my doctor was contemplating surgery!!
On day one you introduced me to SMR and had me rolling out in our first session. I was thinking to myself: "Is this Cajun crazy? Rolling around on ...some foam and a ball is going to save me from surgery?"
Needless to say, I was so wrong! After only a few months I'm at about 90% - running and being active again! My gut also thanks you. Soon enough I'll be doing 1,000 burpies and 300 over-head squats!
Thanks for all your Help Jeff & Carolyn!
A recent attendee at one of our 4-hour mini clinics:
"The class was more than I expected. What a bargain, a session of physical therapy while learning the process. I put great value in your detailed description of potential pain and when to see a therapist. This showed me that you really cared about your students and your clients.
I enjoyed the testimonial type stories, finding that your forearm was the source of numbness in your fingers, your solution to sharp nerve pain in your cheek, the woman with migraines, the client with the arthritic hip, etc. Your manual is put together well and easy to navigate.
Thank you for holding the class!"
One of our attendees at the 2-Day Coaches Clinic recently sent us a message:
Looks like you are continuing to do great things out there in CA. I'm using the stuff I learned from you last summer along with KStarr's stuff almost everyday in my CrossFit group classes. Thanks for everything you do for the community."
