Timothy Agnew, BA, NCTMB began his study of human anatomy in 1982 at the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL. In drawing the human figure, he realized he could apply his new knowledge to help his occasional competitive running injuries. After working in the art field in various capacities, he returned to school and earned a degree in English literature while working as a certifi ed personal trainer. Seeing a need for a more hand’son approach to wellness, Timothy shifted his studies to physical therapy, and applied to different programs in the hope of once again returning to school. When a client introduced him to renowned kinesiologist Aaron L. Mattes, he became fascinated with kinesiology and its more specific focus on human movement. After serving an internship with him, Aaron convinced Timothy to pursue kinesiology as a course of study. He completed the ATC (Athletic Trainer Certified) course requirements under the guidance of Dr. Carl Cramer at Barry University in Miami, and finished the program at the University of South Florida. Upon completing his college track, he became a nationally certified massage therapist. He continued his studies in orthopedic rehabilitation, including symposiums with the Cleveland Clinic of Sports Health, focusing on upper and lower extremity dysfunctions. Having begun training in the Japanese martial art aikido in 1991, he applied the philosophy of aikido with his kinesiology knowledge and opened a private practice concentrating in rehabilitation. At his clinic in Sarasota, he specializes in improving the quality of life for his patients, which include Olympic athletes, renowned artists and dancers, as well as stroke, MS, and Parkinson’s patients. Timothy has been an educator in the health fi eld for over 15 years, presenting his modality Clinical Flexibility and Therapeutic Exercise (CFTE) seminars to international and regional conferences, students, and the general public. He is a member of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and served as a continuing education provider for the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and currently the National Certifi cation Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB). In 1998, Timothy formed Intent Multimedia, an educational media company that produced the DVD’s CFTE: Assisted Clinical Flexibility, and Dynamic Flexibility: a Safe and Effective Self-Stretching Program, as well as the The Dynamic Flexibility Manual: a Safe and Effective Self-Stretching Program. Timothy continues to play an active role in the production of his media, including human anatomy animations used in his videos. He also wrote, directed, and edited his most recent DVD, designed for the general public. His current project is a brand new edition of the Dynamic Flexibility manual that is to be used with the Dynamic flexibility DVD. An avid reader and writer, Timothy’s short stories have appeared in The Roanoke Review, Skylark (Purdue University Calmont), and the anthology A Cup of Comfort, and he has won regional awards for his fi ction. He continues to teach and train in aikido, a true study of human movement. He lives with his family in Sarasota, FL and can be reached at www.stretchme.com.
