About Howard Waldstreicher

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.”
