Todd Bauer Owner of Optimal Health Alliance
The B Strong course was very informative, and easy to comprehend. It was nice to see the quantifiable data and comparisons to why it’s the leading product on the market for restricted blood flow training.
Tim Anderson Co-Founder, Original Strength
During the B Strong live education course, I enjoyed the scientific explanations intertwined with practical application for various training or rehab settings. The appeal for those wanting aesthetics, a performance edge, or to regain/maintain physical independence are there, but for me, the gold is in restoration applications outside of the weight room. From improving hormones profiles to restoring the health of damaged tissues in the body, this is a way to tap into and harness the power inside the body’s natural design safely and quickly, using low load/low-intensity exercise. B Strong BFR Training is fascinating. Very exciting!
Linda Shiffer Occupational Therapist, Fitness Enthusiast
Thank you to all! This was a great course! Dr. Stray-Gundersen explains BFR with an in-depth knowledge of the subject matter in an understandable manner. He and Kathy Smith make a great team! I highly recommend this course!
Brandy Barna High Level Junior Ski Coach
Wonderful course! It is evident that the B Strong training system is the most effective and safest BFR system available for both high performance and rehabilitation use, alike. This was my second BFR course, and I found more value in the B Strong course as there were more examples of practical (and safe) application. Two thumbs up. Strongly recommend!!
