Certified Personal Trainer (SFC) based in the vibrant city of New York. My philosophy centers around prioritizing technique above all else. Drawing from my extensive background as a former professional dancer, I not only teach but also strive to educate individuals about the intricacies of flexibility and technique. Upon obtaining my certification as a Personal Trainer, I was driven to blend the art of dance with flexibility training. In my classes, whether for groups or individuals, I seamlessly integrate elements from Horton, Ballet, and Graham techniques, while emphasizing fundamental stretching anatomy. Whether you're a novice or have a decade of experience in flexibility training, my approach is personalized to suit any (your) level. My training style offers a comprehensive understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects of stretching and flexibility, which you can directly apply to disciplines like yoga, dance, or simply enhancing your overall well-being.
The best part? No prior experience is required. Flexibility training, often underestimated in the realm of fitness, becomes a focal point, allowing you to gain insights into flexibility, technique, and strength. Every session covers the benefits and drawbacks of proper flexibility technique training. I provide hands-on demonstrations and instruction in various flexibility methods, along with techniques aimed at enhancing your range of motion. Encompasses warm-up routines, targeted stretches to improve specific movements, and complete body sequences that can be incorporated into a variety of flexibility poses. Each class and session is tailored to accommodate individuals at their respective skill levels, whether they are beginners, intermediates, or advanced practitioners. I extend a warm welcome to individuals of all ages, shapes, and sizes. I look forward to working with you soon.

'Believe you can and your half way there." 'I've been coming to Wade's class since Jan and everytime I leave its like a feeling of relief and empowerment ... Stretch class has become a hobby of mine it's not about just doing a split or being the most flexible to me it's coming to class giving your all and being better than when you first walked in.'

'm really liking Wade Bryant's flexibility class. Even being a few decades older than his average client, with the dings on the chassis to prove it. The vibe is serious - everyone is doing intense 'me' work because the slow deliberate pace means we have to confront some discomfort (possibly including emotional).
That being said it's a very supportive class. I'm pretty new in the group and already feel part of it. Also in every class so far there's at least one moment of surrender to the stretch. We hold long enough to reach that point, and it's pretty transcendent every time. Inspiration through perspiration (tbh, sweat ).
We are all in different places on our flexibility journey and Wade Bryant wants to know where you're at. You get a form to fill out about physical issues you're working around (my case arthritis in one knee and recent knee replacement the other), so if you need to adapt or even skip a movement you're treated like a grown up about it,Highly recommend if you want to get some forward momentum rather than stay in your comfort zone.
After a mere few sessions, Wade utterly transformed my body's flexibility. I have danced all my life, and yet Wade introduced me to entirely new stretches that pushed my body to its limits in the best way possible. I feel a marked difference in my hamstring and hip flexibility after working with Wade for just a short time. I feel truly lucky to be training with Wade, and highly recommend him to any dancers, yogis, or hopeful humans who want to be astonished with what their bodies can do!
I suffered an injury in 2022 where I fell and hurt both knees and ankles. I had surgery on one knee and will be getting another one soon.
Through this process, I did not get quality treatment from physical therapy which caused a lot of muscle loss and muscle tightness which resulted in the sciatic nerve to get activated and prevent me from getting out my seat. I got admitted in the hospital for 20 days in July. I came out to see a few specialist and the spine doctor told me my hamstring are very tight. He said the treatment is exercise, stretch, and massages.
I went to inquire about yoga but the class was to expensive. Then I saw Wade posted a sale and I booked it! I was nervous and saw a wonderful talented group. I didn’t think I was meant to be in the class but Wade listened to me and he works with my condition.
Thanks to Wade I am doing much better. I can stand tall, and I am walking better. I recently got evaluated by my physical therapist she said I am more flexible and my balance have improved.
Everyone in the class is so supportive. I don’t only go to the class because I need to stretch but also I feel comfortable and it helps me with my mental health.
Wade motivates people to do more and he motivated me to do more. The class is my place to forget about my stressors. The class good for the body, mind and soul. I have never been to one of Wade classes that I haven’t laugh. I really recommend the class!!
Thank you so much Wade for everything!!
Benefits of Flexibility
Improved Range of Motion
Enhanced flexibility allows your joints to move through their full range of motion, which can help in activities like bending, reaching, and stretching. This is particularly important for athletes and can also improve everyday activities.
Flexibility can improve your posture by allowing your body to maintain proper alignment and reduce the risk of developing musculoskeletal issues like chronic back pain.
Reduced Risk of Injury
Flexible muscles and joints are less prone to strain and injury. Stretching and flexibility exercises can help prevent muscle imbalances and reduce the likelihood of strains, sprains, and other injuries.
Better Balance and Coordination
Improved flexibility can enhance your balance and coordination, reducing the risk of falls and injuries, especially in older individuals.
