Qualifications: Bachelors of Science, Cal State Fullerton with an emphasis in Biomechanics, motor learning/motor control, & injury prevention.

Current Movement & Why Stretching is Important to Dre: Currently, I work on my own body four times a week. Two times a week doing interval & circuit training. Two times per week running/hiking. A positive mindset along with a priority to personal growth are values held close. This begins with the discipline of taking care of our mind & body. My goal is to be an example for others in reaching their health & wellness goals, and help them exceed their expectations. Stretching & flexibility is important because it promotes blood flow, decreases the chance of injury, and improves overall quality of life by bringing awareness to our bodies & how to move most efficiently.
