"Let me start by saying that I'm the type of person that keeps all their stress in their neck and shoulders. In fact the more stress I have in my life the more I look like a turtle going into it's shell. When it got so bad the my neck was disappearing a friend told me about Jeff and his wonderful Strength Stretching Massage. I went for my session and when I was done I was like a different person. I could actually stand up straight and like the turtle coming out of his shell I had a neck again. My shoulders were where they belonged and the weight on them was gone. Next I plan to try the DPT classes. Who knows by the time I'm done I'll be a whole new person"
"Hi Jeff! I just bought the bridge video and watched it. I liked it a lot because I had been doing the bridge since I had bought your other e-book like 2 months ago where you had a report about the bridge and back pain.
It is the bridge the best ever exercise I have done to reduce the pain in my lower back. I even have started to run again like I use to do 3 years ago and surely it's thanks to the bridge. Now I can see the technique to do it and I hope it will be even better.
Don't you have any other technique like this to avoid hurting the knees? I love running and even though I do it on grass, time-to-time acute pains set me limp. Ok Jeff, thanks for one of the greatest tip I ever heard. I know I have serious disk problems following EMR tests but this has really helped. A lot of drugs have been avoided and this is good. God bless you and you family."
"Hi, Jeff. I just started on your breathing techniques and have seen some great results. I have been able to breathe my way through several attacks instead of using my inhaler! Thanks for your help!"
I bought your Dynamic Power Breathing book a couple of months ago and love it. I started to work on the drills and have noticed a difference. I eventually want to try the power running drills. I think this book would really help people not only with asthma (like your daughter), but also people who suffer with High Blood Pressure. You should market it towards them. There aren’t any books out there like this, trust me I have looked into it."

"Jeff's multi-discipline approach to fitness training fusing elements of Yoga with modern training principles combined with his own experience and formal study of human physiology has been of great benefit to me.
I believe his training has enabled me to continue participating in JiuJitsu at an age (39) where the majority of my training partners are 10-20 years younger."
"I’ve tried for years to find an exercise program that I liked and could stick with, and with Jeff, 'The Body Mechanic', I finally did! In December 2007, I began actively working with Jeff to become a runner, my desired form of exercise because I can do it anywhere/anytime and with my dogs on a regular basis.
When we started, like I have many times, I was just sure that I’d never be very effective. However, due to Jeff’s highly positive, motivational, goal-oriented approach, in record time I reached my goal of running 30 minutes without stopping!! Thanks Jeff for helping me make this possible in my life. At almost 50, I feel better and look better than I have in years and I have every intention of keeping it up!!"
"Jeff is truly ‘the body mechanic’. My stretching sessions with him have helped tremendously with my flexibility, and his massage therapy has helped to alleviate a lot of my neck pain. I bought my first session through one of those group purchases, but I am now a regular client."
"I just turned 50 and while I have been exercising for most of my life, I was in a rut and knew that I needed some guidance on how to best change my routine to meet the challenges of an over 50 year old body.
I have been meeting with Jeff for almost a year and with his knowledge and support I am more flexible and stronger than I was in my 20s. Jeff never talks about what you can’t do only what you can and it is that kind of attitude that makes me want to try harder. I would recommend him to anyone that has a desire to start a new exercise regime or jump start an old one."
"Jeff, as a Masters endurance athlete, I have seen a slow drop in my race times and experienced an increase in soreness post my harder training runs. Over the last couple of months, I have been amazed at the progress I have made on many fronts.
I believe I have already become a much more efficient runner. I have seen an increase in my speed, my recovery post workouts has been much better and I feel overall stronger as an athlete. I can't wait to see the continued results over the next 4-6 months. I can't thank you enough. My goal is to remain competitive as a runner for a long time, and I believe your training approach will be a key to my doing so."
"Training with Jeff has been a life changing experience. He not only trains your body, but also your mind and spirit. For many years I have wanted to get in really good shape. Trying various classes and trainers proved unsuccessful for me. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy the exercise programs and therefore lacked commitment.
Then I started going to Jeff’s Dynamic Power Training classes and was hooked. Several months later I began my personal training journey with Jeff. His methods are unique, fun and effective. To say that Jeff is creative is an understatement. He has an endless repertoire of exercises that focus on functional fitness which improve strength, flexibility and endurance.
With his positive approach, Jeff trains his clients to celebrate success and overcome failures with equal enthusiasm. Jeff delivers anecdotal analogies pertinent to his client’s frame of mind and motivation. He truly exercises the whole person, mind, body and spirit. My comfort and my confidence in everyday life are much stronger.
Jeff’s holistic fitness program has helped me break through barriers I never knew existed. This is an incredible journey! After getting in this kind of shape, I never want to go back.
My name is Lilianna Fernandez. I'm a 17 year old elite-triathlete. I just recently competed in age group nationals in Vermont and qualified for World Championships next September in London! The excitement of this accomplishment can only be expressed because of Jeff Wooten and Mary Wire.
"I met Jeff at massage school and he impressed me with his in depth knowledge of the body’s musculature system as well as the minute details of the firing of the muscle fibers and the corresponding nervous system action. Jeff has given thorough attention to every detail of his training course.
His program will meet the needs of a wide variety of people, from those that are already in-shape and active to those who are ready to get in-shape but just can’t find the time to figure out what to do first. Jeff knows the right techniques to get the beginner going as well as fine tune the advanced athlete."
"Jeff Wooten is very knowledgeable about a subject largely ignored by organized medicine and even many in alternative therapies....that is the creeping loss of mobility and flexibility as we age and Jeff provides teaching in reversing this loss.
Never knew you could increase your strength while increasing your flexibility! Awesome experience!"
"Jeff is a great motivator and one of the most energetic and positive people I have ever met. Although his approach is a lot different than most trainers, I have experienced significantly better results. As an 'over 50' adult, symptoms of arthritis, plantar fasciitis have disappeared, and I am more toned than I ever thought possible."
Thanks. You’ve given me a way to kick my own $ss. I need this, and I’m loving it. I’m really flushing a lot of crap out and it feels GOOOOD to purify this way!"
"I've been exercising regularly for years but had hit a plateau in my training. I had really lost my motivation because I was not getting trim, toned, and strong.
However, I started training with Jeff only one month ago and have already seen results! I've seen improvements in my strength, flexibility, and muscle tone in just a short time. I feel so energized after each class. I know I still have a lot of room for improvement and so much more to learn, but I look forward to this process. Jeff is so encouraging in class, but even outside of class, his promotion of an overall healthy lifestyle has motivated me to eat healthier than I was before!"
"Jeff, It's a pleasure to give my feed back. I am still only at stage 1. But I am getting up at 6:10 am every morning and practicing 2 exercises taught in the Dynamic Power Breathing e-book. First one is to stand in front of a mirror, exhale, bend in the waist, put hands on the thies and pull your stomach in as much as you can.
"Jeff, I really enjoyed your article on efitness, as a personal trainer and yoga studio owner/teacher I really felt it was right on the money. So many fitness tips are just the same old thing and they never push anyone. As a yoga teacher I am always expecting students to go the extra mile and ask more of themselves, your article was a breath of fresh air. Thank you!"
I was a bit apprehensive about today's match because my heel was quite sore after the massage yesterday...especially after you put that 'cortisone shot ' (smile) right smack into the bottom of my heel!!!!
"I had issues with my Blood pressure, flexibility and endurance. After 3 months training with Jeff I see drastic overall changes. My Blood Pressure is back to normal 108 /74 and my digestion has improved dramatically, which is amazing.
"Great session. Came in with an open mind to the experience and was blown away. Definitely not a relaxing experience. If you want to lie there and have someone rub on you then choose a different massage. It was hard work but after my first session I am convinced it is well worth the effort. I had pain in my hip for two weeks, after the first session there is no pain in the hip. There is a lot of general soreness and some tightness that was causing the pain but that tells me I worked hard and the session was a huge success. Jeff was great at explaining what we were doing and why, everything he said made perfect sense. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone serious about improving their body."
"Jeff, I just wanted to e-mail you and say thanks! Yesterday was of course Easter and I found myself at a friend’s party with of course tons of great foods. My favorite of which was bread dip. I started ediets on December 27, 2005 and have since lost 30 pounds.
I have been working out 5 days a week and eating better. The bread dip was a treat but after I felt so guilty like all my hard work was for nothing, then I come into work and see your article about cheating every once in a while. It really hit home and made me realize I did not sabotage all my efforts, I ate some bread dip. I don’t do it all the time. So thank you for helping me realize I don’t have to beat myself up its ok. You really have no idea how much reading your article helped!!!! Thanks so much."
"I would like to share my personal training experiences with Jeff. His training style and delivery makes it very enjoyable and infomative. I have gained flexibilty and used muscles I never knew I had. I have gained a wealth of knowledge in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu that I can employ with my career as a Police Officer. Jeff is a true asset to the BJJ and personal fitness domain. Great job Jeff keep up the good work... ."
"Thank you, Jeff, for your wisdom and coaching. I will be more than happy to share my journey with ANY new clients that you may be speaking with. To date, I have lost 12 pounds, (I do not know how many inches, only that a size 6 is now a size 2), and that I am MOST IMPORTANTLY----STRONGER THAN EVER BEFORE!!!
Your patience with me, with all of my fears of injury, is indescribable. Your ability to challenge me is undeniable. You have nursed me from "injured" to "able", and for that, I will always be grateful.
Again, thank you for this amazing journey. I can't wait to see what else I may learn from you in our next sessions."
