  1. Jay,

    By you making a large purchase of products from us, I would clearly wish to support your efforts but that would not provide you with any formal credential. However, I do provide hands-on intruction through 2-day clinics at various CrossFit and other facilities nationwide, and the list is growing. I would be happy to discuss potential dates to come to your neck of the woods and provide detailed instruction of the methods and limits of SMR.

    As of now there is no formal certification necessary to teach SMR, but I do recommend knowing what you are talking about before telling your clients to do anything beyond the typical rolling out on the big foam rollers.

    We’ve had clients get remarkable results from the restoration of functional range of motion possible through SMR. But not everyone has the same level of commitment to daily SMR work, so I can make no guarantees to anyone about the avoidance of surgery nor the complete restoration of performance. Sometimes the damage is too great to overcome through self-therapy methods.

    I’ll call you tomorrow to discuss what is best for you, and I look forward to being of assistance if that is possible.

  2. My wife (Val Whiting, Stanford University Sports ‘Hall of Famer’) and I own a business as well in Wilmington, Delaware. I have a couple of questions.

    1. When you say that you train trainers, is that in the philosophy of using your technology to provide SMR programming for their clients?

    2. Is there some type of train the trainer certification or affiliation you provide for trainers to provide SMR programming?

    3. If I bought, let say, 20 of your Ultimate Packages, would I be allowed to provide SMR programming? We would love to be the prototype for this programming considering my wife gets orthorscopic surgery this Friday, January 15, 2010 to remove a bone fragment from her left shoulder. She has not been able to move her arm above her head since this summer. The long wait was to get as many opinions as possible considering she never had surgery as a professional basketball player.
