What you notice when taking Kirsten’s Fitness classes is the personal care she takes with everyone in the room. Her stretching classes are amazing. She takes the time to make sure you do not overdo any movement, potentially injuring yourself. Her video expresses that same dedication. She has developed a great program and has quite a devoted following. I for one am one of those people. I used to hate class participation, and would never just follow a video at home. Now I do. Thanks Kirsten

Congratulations on your wonderful “Functional Flexibility” DVD.  The instruction and content are outstanding. The guidance throughout each step is very clear and concise.  The beautiful waterfront location adds serenity to this video.  The camera followed you perfectly at every angle, allowing the viewer to achieve the correct form right on cue. Your presence, hair, makeup and attire are impeccable!
I like how you remind the viewer at each step that “if this is your max, here is were you stay”, and how each stretch should only be taken from 1-3, never 4-5.  You perfectly demonstrated each level, emphasizing “no quaking, no stabbing pain and no bouncing”. I really appreciate that this DVD is easy to follow and that you carefully explain every step.


I am 54 years old and my goal is to become more flexible. I take spin, dance, chisel, cardio classes and have found that stretching every day has helped me stay active and my workouts become more efficient.  Also, I feel very relaxed after following your Functional Flexibility DVD!  Thanks for publishing this instructional video.  I can’t wait for the next one! 
I cannot say enough good things about Kirsten. I’ve been training with Kirsten since our gym opened in 2006 and have loved every bit of it. She is the most devoted and passionate instructor I have ever worked with. She is not only professional and knowledgeable in her field but she has an incredible energy and spirit that can motivate anyone. She pushes hard, but does it in a way that makes you want to come back because the experience is positive and fun. I was so excited when I heard Kirsten was making a stretch video. Alternating between full body workouts, walking and this Functional Flexibility CD, I am well on my way back to the strength and flexibility I had 20 years ago. I have also noticed that my posture is better and no more back aches! If you are looking for something relaxing that will also improve and shape your body then Functional Flexibility is for you.

The Functional Flexibilty DVD is a dream come true. Being able to properly stretch in my own home, when it is convenient for me, is priceless! I loving ending my day with Kirsten coaching me through my stretches. Following the DVD, I know I am doing it correctly, and I am calmed by the peaceful scenery. Kirsten’s cues and comments are on target and said just when you need them. Her modifications have allowed my elderly parents and 7 year old daughter participate along with me. Kirsten’s extreme knowledge and overwhelming concern for her clients come across beautifully in her first DVD. I cannot wait to see what else she has in store for us!
