300% Improvement Beyond Stretching

"Microfiber Reduction increases flexibility 100-300% beyond stretching."
Somax Performance Institute (web:, the world leader in analyzing, measuring and improving sports performance, is proud to announce that their sports analysis videos have surpassed 1.6 million views.

Many viewers have praised the Somax videos for helping them improve their performance in golf, tennis, track and baseball.

"We enjoy helping recreational and competitive athletes learn how to videotape, analyze, measure and improve their own sports mechanics instead of trying to copy well-known athletes, who often succeed in spite of their inefficient movement patterns," says Bob Prichard, Director of Somax Performance Institute. "We ask athletes: why try to imitate pro athletes when you can develop more efficient movements on your own with our analysis system and your home video camera?"

These enjoyable and instructive sports analysis videos are available for viewing on the Somax website at

The Somax RSSSA Analysis System details

RSSSA stands for Range, Sequence, Separation, Speed and Alignment
  • By measuring Range, or how many degrees the parts of the body move, Somax has been able to predict injuries in athletes as much as a year in advance, as well as improve running pace by more than a minute per mile in just a few weeks.
  • By measuring Sequence, or the order in which athletes move the parts of their body, Somax has been able help athletes increase the length of their drives off the tee and home plate by 20%.
  • By measuring Separation, or the amount of time between movements, Somax can identify areas where athletes can improve their performance while at the same time reducing effort.
  • By measuring and improving Speed, or the speed of hip rotation, Somax has almost doubled racquet head speed in tennis players and added 25 mph to golf swing speed in less than four weeks.
  • By measuring Alignment, Somax has improved accuracy in golfer's drives from 55% to 92% and reduced chronic injuries in runners.
The Somax RSSSA system of analysis has been proven to be not only simpler than computerized analysis, but more successful in identifying inefficiencies that can be improved to boost performance.

Microfiber Reduction

Microfiber Reduction is a proprietary form of connective tissue massage developed by Somax to release microfibers, or mild scar tissue, that have developed in the connective tissue between the muscles as a result of sports impacts and overuse like lifting weights or running. These microfibers accumulate over time, making athletes stiffer with age. Microfiber Reduction reverses this age-related stiffness, improving flexibility 100-600% beyond what stretching alone can do.

About Somax Performance Institute

Since 1970, the Somax Performance Institute has helped athletes of all ages improve their performance by improving their efficiency--rather than their strength and endurance. Their 17 Olympic athletes have won 44 Gold Medals and have set 11 World Records. Their pro golfers have won the US Open as a rookie, increased their putting from #113 to #1, quadrupled their tour income and increased their longest drive from 295 to 400. Amateur golfers have increased their distance, lowered their handicap and eliminated back pain.

Runners have cut a minute per mile off their running pace and swimmers have cut their stroke count in half while improving their swim times.

Baseball players have increased their long ball from 400 to 480, their bases stolen from 14/15 to 32/33 and their income from $500K to $1.75 million.
