Steve was co-owner with Marcus Riggleman of Phoenix Fitness in Allentown, PA where he oversaw member services, equipment management, and fitness training. After meeting Bob Cooley, Marcus and Steve opened the first Studio 16�A Meridian Stretching Studio � in Bethlehem, PA dedicated entirely to Resistance Stretching.

Steve says: "Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching is the ultimate in fitness training. After meeting Bob, I dropped 30 pounds of un-needed mass and actually became stronger! I now enjoy weight training without suffering from the characteristic aches and pains often associated with strength training. I now look and feel the way I always wanted and I keep improving everyday. The emotional and psychological benefits from Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching are the parts missing from most physical training. My life is now moving in the directions that I have always wanted."

Steven is a NASM certified personal trainer. He also spent four years in the Air Force serving our country.

Anne Tierney met Bob Cooley while completing her Masters degree at Lehigh University. Immediately upon being stretched she knew it was something that every athlete not only would love but also desperately needed, especially at the collegiate and professional levels. Day after day, year after year athletes are constantly adding stress and tension to their bodies � Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching finally offers a way to take it all out. Over past several years she has worked with Steve Sierra, during which she has gained experience working with an Olympic-hopeful swimmer, golfers, and collegiate-level basketball and football players. By working directly alongside Bob Cooley and his top trainer, Steve Sierra, her education has advanced at a great pace and she has acquired invaluable information and experience due to her direct association with the two of them. They handle the most extreme, unique, and difficult cases as well as the top-tier athletes and executives. As a Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching Instructor, she has learned the concomitance between the physical body and psychological, spiritual and emotional traits.
