Flexibility is Freedom
Fit & Bendy is a flexibility fitness company dedicated to unlocking the body’s range of motion. Our mission is to empower humans to stretch into the unknown and find joy in being alive.
A healthy, high-functioning body must have both strength and flexibility in order to move through the world with grace and ease. Our methods safely and effectively build these two attributes together through a variety of techniques drawn from dance, circus, pilates, and the latest in sports science.
FaB programs assist individuals at every level, from elite athletes and performers to people struggling with mobility for everyday living. At our Los Angeles facility we offer group classes, specialty sessions, workshops, and individual coaching. For our global community we have a line of DVDs and streaming videos, Skype coaching, and other online resources.
We are dedicated to increasing access to safe, effective stretching techniques by offering courses for fitness professionals and enthusiasts to demystify flexibility training and its effects on the body.
I came to Kristina after trying chiropractic, acupuncture and at least 5 physical therapists. But their goal seemed to be to mitigate pain, not solve the underlying problem. For years they had been squinting and guessing at what might be the problem with my shoulder. Within minutes, Kristina had put me through a couple exercises and had isolated the issue. I could see right away that she had both an intuitive and technical knowledge of the human body. I’m so relieved to finally be in sure hands. I won’t lie, it has not been an easy road. I came to Kristina with years of injury and misuse exacerbated by weight lifting. But I stopped guessing and I started getting steady results. Now, about six months later, our slow and methodical base work is really beginning to bear fruit. Yes, I’m in better shape. But I can’t express how much better my body just works.
Kristina has an uncanny eye for form and has an astute knowledge of body mechanics that rivals most. With these attributes, she was able to help me correct asymmetries in my strength and posture. Working with Kristina as a flexibility instructor, I have had the benefit of seeing dramatic improvements in my flexibility that I had previously thought impossible to achieve in my 30’s.
Kristina has been by far the best coach I have ever worked with. Her vast knowledge of the body coupled with her saintly patience and unequivocal attentiveness have helped me tremendously... she has brought things to my attention that no one ever explained to me before.
Kristina’s approach is methodical, nurturing, and very results-oriented, but safe… she’s able to cue exactly where to lengthen, adjust, relax or engage in order to achieve the best and bendiest results, but always with a performer’s career longevity in mind.
Incredible class! I didn’t know I could bend so far and yet feel so incredible the next day! Kristina is a great instructor. She is incredibly knowledgeable and breaks things down so that your flexy goals that once seemed impossible will suddenly be closer than you thought.
