FLEXIBILITY + STRENGTH + COORDINATION
Stick Mobility combines joint mobilization, strength training, and active stretching exercises to increase athletic performance, reduce risk of injury, and speed recovery.
ABOUT OUR CLASS
Our Active Recovery class is taught by 3 advanced trainers with a combined experience of 8+ years. We primarily use mobility sticks but incorporate other techniques to enhance your mobility journey.

WHAT IS STICK MOBILITY?
Stick Mobility is a training system that improves your mobility, stability, and strength.
The system combines joint mobilization, strength training, and active stretching to increase athletic performance, reduce risk of injury, and speed recovery.
The exercises use the Mobility Stick as a tool to improve range of motion, muscle activation, coordination, and body awareness to build a strong foundation for better movement.
WHY ARE STICK MOBILITY EXERCISES MORE EFFECTIVE THAN BASIC STRETCHES?
Stick Mobility uses the formula: joint range of motion + joint stability + neuromuscular drive = mobility.
Stretching by itself lacks these crucial elements. We know that our muscles get tight for a reason, and no matter how much we stretch, without the right strength levels, they won’t let go. This is typically caused by weakness in one area causing tension in another.
For example – tighten the hip flexors, like you do when you sit down all day, and your hamstrings will become overactive when you extend the hip. Tightness makes you more susceptible to injury.
The neuromuscular drive benefits from Stick Mobility come as your body is better able to coordinate your muscles as one unified mechanism to produce movement. The better balanced your muscles are, the better they can coordinate your kinetic chain.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF STICK MOBILITY?
Through combining joint mobilization, strength training, and active stretching with the Stick Mobility system we have seen users improve their:
Functional range of motion
Protection from injury
Recovery from injury
Recovery from exercise faster
