Our Philosophy

Our classes are all about integration. We use techniques and exercises from multiple systematic approaches to get you to your goals. These include Kinstretch, Stick Mobility, breathing drills, and classic strength and conditioning.

With our extremely thorough self-assessment tutorial, you will learn exactly what you need to work on. Using your assessment as a blueprint you will be able to choose classes that focus on your deficits. This approach ensures you are progressing where you need it most.

Our students are raving about classes with Ian.

Just wanted to take the time to say what a fantastic coach Ian Markow is. The time he put into the cues, classes and programming really shows.

Just did the spine class last night! Best kinstretch class I’ve ever done! And I’ve done many! It’s hard to teach good spine class online! Good job Ian! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼

Ulrike B.

You are truly educating us about our bodies and after just the first class and the prep work via assessments. I can honestly say that this investment has been one of the best ever!!!!

Adrian L.

It's very detailed and well organized. It's been the perfect follow up to FRC.

Fi S.

Are we allowed to swear here?! Because holy fork was that Hip IR class monstrous 😂

Phillip A.

My knee has felt insanely better since starting this. No painful lockouts or the joint sticking. I do Capoeira as well. I went back to it last week and I was amazed by how good my hips felt and how easy some of the kicks felt.

Chris M.

My hip flexors usually get tight and painful throughout the week but since that class and being diligent with my hip CARS they have felt amazing. Looking forward to the gains pain 😂

Stephen C.

With the help of Ian Markow's great coaching I've gotten even better at getting in touch with my joints on an isolated level. I'm realizing more and more that FRC/Kinstretch IS FITNESS. This type of training provides you with the hardware(joints) necessary to do amazing things like capoiera, run, play sports, lift heavy things etc.

Will B.

I’m a PT myself, have been for 10 years and just wanted to thank Ian Shields Markow for putting the course together as it’s definitely helped me get a better grasp of the FRC concept and given me a library of exercises that I can implement with my clients - helping them move better too.

What comes with a subscription?

Unlimited Access

Your subscription includes unlimited access to all of our classes. We have included longer hour-long classes with focuses such as improving your bench press or your squat. We have also included shorter classes that can be easily added to what someone is already doing.


Self Assessment Video Series

When it comes to putting in work MTS does not like to guess. We have created a video series to assess your body head to toe including how to screenshot the necessary positions to establish a baseline. Week 1 you will know exactly where you are limited which will allows you to individualize your approach outside of class as well as maximize your intent in class. 

Kinstretch Pro Tip Video Series

We have put together a series of videos discussing the finer details of the training approaches we use. This series is the end result of working with a wide variety of students who can’t find the stretch, feel pain in certain places or can not get into a certain position. We have done everything in our power to give you the tools to individualize this membership to your own body in order to maximize efficiency and enjoy success.

Facebook Group

Joining the program will grant access to the Facebook group which will serve as a forum. All questions will be answered, students can post videos, and additional links can be shared.

We have organized our subscription in the most digestible way possible.

The truth is the science behind training can be confusing. With the acronyms, principles, and endless exercise options it can be hard to know if you are doing things right. 

For example, if you are working on your squat, you will find a complete class dedicated to the squat. Maybe your assessment highlighted a limited shoulder and you are doubling down on the shoulder internal rotation class. 

You have all the tools you need to effortlessly individualize this subscription to maximize your results. 

In order to ensure the correct form is emphasized we utilize two views allowing students to see all the details from different angles. We have screenshots of each exercise in class accompanied by the regressions, progressions, and focuses.
