Creating Functionally Independent Movers

stick mobility

Stick mobility is a system that enables an increased range of motion and enhances mind - body connection. As our society continues to become increasingly sedentary (excessive sitting etc.), we are seeing major problems occurring upstream in the knee/hip/low back areas. In order to compensate for this lifestyle shift, we remedy the issue by reconnecting with our foundation (feet) and adapting our “daily practise”.

The stick(s) provides leverage to access ranges you normally could not reach and will enable you to easily apply tension to strengthen them. With the help of the sticks and barefoot connection we are able to prime your positions, and then we introduce the kettlebell.

kettlebell

The kettlebell is simple yet elegant in that it has a vast amount of exercise potential. Kettlebell seamlessly combines strength training, cardiorespiratory conditioning, core stabilization, coordination, and dynamic mobility.

To further address this age of chronic low back/hip/knee pain, we believe the kettlebell is the best tool to assist in reversing these issues. The highly popular swing is an extremely effective exercise to produce power endurance and develop overall posterior chain strength. Developing this kind of power-endurance is particularly useful for both athletes in sport and even people who work at desk jobs that are developing postural issues.
