I note he said **ever** I get that...did the pro tell you to work on your flexibility? My point is if you were a dancer or gymnast as a child consistently (I am not talking recreational classes (which are classes like once a week for just an hour or 2) the chance is more likely your were flexible. Regardless of how you are born; because pretty much after 8 y/o flexibility is pretty much a learned behavior for 90% of the population. Most kids after 8 years old who joined my classes weren't flexible naturally; I didn't say 'ohhh they just don't have it genetically'. The students worked at it; through dedication and stretching after a year or two they were flexible.
