Editorial Reviews

For a long time, my worldwide fans have asked me for advice on training techniques. Renowned martial artists want to know how to become more flexible to achieve the kicks I perform, and world-class athletes want to improve their range of motion and protect themselves against injuries. Preparing your mind and body to perform at its optimum level is fundamental to any sport. I produced "Secrets of Splits & Flexibility" to help athletes reach their full potential and to achieve the success they desire.

In this DVD, I present my training techniques and proven solutions designed to alleviate back pain, knee problems, and other debilitating ailments. I demonstrate unique stretches and exercises that will enable you to attain a level of flexibility that usually requires years of training; and I will demonstrate to you the correct order in which to do them. This will enable your body to open up faster, thereby allowing you to get into splits more rapidly, safely, and with confidence. You will also discover that this workout provides anti-aging benefits. My techniques will help you overcome stiff joints and that "hunched-over" posture, which limits the activities you are able to participate in.

Whether you are a beginner or an expert, young or old, these exercises will help and challenge you. They will give you a firm foundation as you embark on your journey to be "the best that you can be."

Stacey Nemour is a black belt in Kung Fu, and a highly respected martial artist and flexibility instructor for 20 years. She has been featured in numerous publications including Inside Kung Fu, Masters of Kung Fu, and Self magazine. Stacey coached Ultimate Fighting Champion Vitor Belfort and the Carlson Gracie Jiu Jitsu Team for their triumphant championship fights on pay-per-view television. She also trained other world-class athletes including NBA player Jalen Rose and the Los Angeles Galaxy Soccer team. In addition to appearing on Fox Sports 11 News and guest starring in the popular TV show "Power Rangers," Stacey worked as a stunt coordinator and fight double for Cybil Shepard on the TV show "Cybil." She has performed in select video games and is working with elite synchronized swimmers preparing them for Olympic competition.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh October 22, 2009
Verified Purchase
If all you want is to learn some stretching exercises and you're willing to do the routine on your own, then this video is for you (although there are books that cover many more exercises). If you're looking for a DVD to pop in and follow along with, then pass on this one.

------
Stacey is an attractive woman with some exceptional skills but this DVD is not what I'd hoped for. The individual stretches are sound but this is more of a how-to-guide than an actual exercise video. She flies through the different stretches without any inclination of how long they should be held. In short I wouldn't call this an exercise video since following along is practically impossible without pausing the DVD all the time. I prefer DVDs over books because it helps keep me in the routine.

The following comments have nothing to do with the stretches in the DVD, but I'm providing it in case these issues may be important to you:
The overall production value is really low. It's basically shot on a consumer level camera (albeit with decent sound) in a living room. The transitions from one stretch to the next are distracting. It's a consistent fade-through-black transition set up, which only helps because you'll need to pause the video quite often. I only bring this up because the DVD is priced pretty high for an exercise DVD. If this were half the price like other DVDs (that usually have better production value) I wouldn't even mention it.
Stacey also has beautiful hair, but she should have put it up in a bun, or a pony tail at the least. It often blanketed her body and this issue coupled with some poor camera angles made for some guess work as to proper positioning and such. Imagine a wig draped over a pretzel.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only demonstration, not a routine September 19, 2009
Verified Purchase
After reading all of the reviews on this video, I bought it and couldn't wait to get it. It was nothing like I was expecting. I expected some sort of routine with longer stretches,(something similar to the Tamilee Total Stretch video but a little more difficult) not just quick demonstrations. I am not extremely flexible at all and really wanted something to help me out. I hate the fact that I have to pause after every single part of the demonstration to do the stretch longer on my own. I'm very disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great video for flexibility January 4, 2012
By Thea
Verified Purchase
I am not really a review writer, but I was compelled to for this video. I have been trying to get down in my splits for around two years. As an adult recreational ballet dancer, flexibility is really important to me. Unfortunately, sciatic pain and tight hamstrings and hips were always preventing me from achieving full splits. I tried everything I could think of, from stretching a lot before and after classes, to buying odd contraptions, and just plain trying to force it through the pain. Finally, as a last resort, I caved and bought this video after reading the good reviews. And to this very moment I am in amazement. I got my splits in days, literally DAYS after I started using the video daily. Given, I don't think I was enormously far from them beforehand, I would say that I was maybe around four inches off the ground before. But I had been four inches away since last year, and I was just plain frustrated by the lack of progress. This video has changed all of that. Now I just slide into the splits for fun, just because I'm so excited that I can! I'm definitely going to keep using this video, who knows maybe I can get as flexible as Stacey herself!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW & FANTASTIC July 11, 2009
Verified Purchase
Stacey Nemour's "Secrets of Splits & Flexibility" is totally great! These exercises truly work! No matter what age you are and the sport(s) or physical activities you engage in, this DVD will help you perform and feel better. I've been struggling to improve the flexibility of my hamstrings: Stacey demonstrated some excellent stretches especially for hamstrings. And, by gully, they work like magic! So, if you are struggling in order to do front or side splits, this DVD will help you reach your goal(s) too. There's a lot of other videos out there on the market; however, this value-packed and information-loaded DVD will save you a lot of trouble, decision-making, money and training time, period. Thank you, Stacey Nemour!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what the title says: Stretching & Flexibility December 29, 2009
First, a little background of me and why I purchased this video. I used to be competitive martial artist, and then a b-boy, I let my training slip when life got in the way, it has been about 5 years since my peak fitness level. I have finally had the chance and motivation to get back to the gym but wanted a guide to help my lack of flexibility, and also to learn some new stretches.

This DVD by Stacey Nemour was EXACTLY what I hoped for, and pretty much what it is advertised for. Her guide to splits and becoming more flexible. I have found some great techniques she teaches and following the stretches in the sequence she teaches has been awesome. It has helped my lower back and hips with getting rid of discomfort. It has gotten me more flexible and I love.

She is fast showing each technique, but she does state to not just do it once. I don't know why there are bad reviews on here saying it isn't a work out. It is to teach techniques, it says NOTHING about being a workout video. If you are looking for a work out DVD, learn how to read first, then shop on Amazon.

If you are looking for a video to teach you techniques for gaining flexibility, I would highly recommend this video. It has taught me alot of cool ways to get the most out of stretching.
