Steve Freides – Flexible Steel Instructor Specialists

Biographical Info

Steve has been a Flexible Steel Instructor since 2014. As he recovered from a back debilitating back injury that left him bed-ridden for 2 months and walking with a limp for over a year, he quickly learned the future health of his back depended on his mastery of both strength and flexibility.  Steve went on to set multiple state, national and world records across multiple federations in the dead-lift while also learning to perform a suspended side split.

Steve’s careers have not been in athletics but in music and computers.

An active performing musician and a private music teacher, he also serves as StrongFirst’s Director of Community Engagement and Administrator of the StrongFirst Community Forum.

Steve thinks everyone interested in taking the best care of their bodies and their minds should become Flexible Steel.
