"Without the flexibility training that Bob developed for me, I could have never accomplished the five Olympic medals I won in Sydney....I also know that Bob's program single-handedly developed me psychologically in very specific ways. With this mental edge, I felt unbelievable. There was no part of me that wasn't improved....What he has figured out about stretching no one knows yet. The world will give Bob the Gold."

– Dara Torres, Olympic Gold Medalist
