a letter of gratitude

Dear Howard,


I just wanted to let you know that your Hinge Method has already made a profound change in my life.  Seriously.  As you know, for 25 years I’ve battled back pain and have tried literally every remedy short of surgery.  When my two kids came along, I felt helpless before the pain.

Nothing else has ever helped me in such a short amount of time as the Hinge Method.  The back strengthening exercises are actually fixing the problem, not just providing short term pain relief like chiropractic work, acupuncture, stretches, and pain meds.  I actually “forget” about my back… 😊

And it was so easy to add the Hinge Method to my routine; just a few times a week, for less than 2 hours in total.  Thank you falls short when it comes to how dazzled I am by the Hinge Method results.  It truly has changed the quality of my day-to-day life.

Pain Free Regards,

Kimberly S.

Created by Howard Waldstreicher, founder of Half Hour Power and a sought-after fitness professional with more than 25 years experience training top athletes, Hinge Method has already helped his elite clientele.

A competitive tennis player himself, Waldstreicher began feeling aches in his back and knees after matches. “It was time to fix my own body,” says Waldstreicher. “I knew all movement starts with the hips, that’s the true core of the body.” And that’s where his research began. Once he enlisted gravity and bodyweight with custom-designed power bands to strengthen his hamstrings and backside, he noticed improved flexibility in his lower back. The pain was gone. His lower back was stronger. “This is the body’s true core,” he explains. “This is how the Hinge Method was born.”
