Russell Stolzoff, founder of Stolzoff Sportworks, describes how Sports Rolfing is a perfect complement to Strength & Conditioning. The marriage of these two approaches is a win-win for athletes seeking to take their performance to the next level
Russell Stolzoff, founder of Stolzoff Sportworks, explains how Advanced Sports Rolfing is able to balance, align, and integrate the body to enhance the performance of professional athletes, such as Devin Taylor, DE of the Detroit Lions.
I would say the biggest spot I notice it in is in my releases, off the line of scrimmage. One thing I've always battled is having tight hips. I feel like my hips and hamis are a lot looser and I feel like my releases are a lot more fluent. I feel like I get off the line a lot easier now and I think that's because I've been staying on top of it, working with Russell, and Russell's done a great job on following up.
I'm entering my 13th NFL season. In 9 of those 12 seasons, I played all 16 games and have never played less than 14 games. That's a remarkable feat in today's NFL! Of course, I've been very fortunate to avoid a serious injury. However, my ability to stay on the field and perform at an All-Pro level 6 times, is more than a matter of luck. It's about preparation and a pro-active approach to staying healthy--what I call prehab. The best form of prehab I've found is Rolfing. I could not have stayed on the field and played at this level without my career-long dedication to Rolfing. Last season with the Seahawks, I started working with Russell Stolzoff of Stolzoff Sportworks. Russell is taking Rolfing to a whole new level with professional and elite athletes. I played every game, felt fresh, and as John Gruden said about me on Monday Night Football 'his legs are alive and it shows on film.' My legs are my livelihood and the return on investment that Rolfing has provided has paid dividends. Don't delay. Check out Stolzoff Sportworks. Your body deserves it.
Rolfing Structural Integration gives me that edge and working with Russell Stolzoff has exceeded my expectations. My alignment and balance have never been better. His work not only speeds my recovery after getting banged up, it helps prevent those nagging injuries from developing into something that would sideline me. After a couple of sessions Russell could just examine me and go straight to an area where I was having trouble.
Recently, I tried a new approach. I did a series of Advanced Sports Rolfing sessions with Russell Stolzoff. He is a true master of his craft. My body has never felt better and it’s taken my alignment, balance, and mechanics to a whole new level.
