Mobility, Flexibility, Yoga, and Guided Partner Stretching

Mobility vs Flexibility vs Yoga vs Stretching

Paul breaks down the differences between mobility, flexibility, yoga, and stretching in careful detail.  Without sufficient mobility you cannot be all that you wish to be.  This applies whether your chosen craft is golf, strength training, CrossFit, or endurance running.  You are not as efficient as a runner, you are more likely to get injured as a golfer, and will be slower in CrossFit.

Core and Lower Mobility

Mobility Exercises TuneUp

Our Mobility Sessions are designed to help you move better. We test your movement, and determine what is not moving well. We analyze how you compensate when you lift, turn, or step. We figure out what causes your pain, decreases your performance, or limits your range of motion. And we fix it with tools and techniques like corrective exercise Mobility WOD, Scraping (Graston), Kinetic Taping, FMS, and More.

Mobility TuneUp is about learning to move better. Why do you need Mobility TuneUp?  It’s because improvement begins and ends with good, quality movement.
