Mobility classes are an important part of a balanced exercise program, and can assist with injury prevention as well as helping you progress with your training.

Our Mobility classes are run in Sydney – Observatory Hill and Jannali (Sutherland Shire) and focus on correcting common movement issues, such as:

  • Toe Touch
  • Deep Squat
  • Shoulder mobility over and under
  • Overhead shoulder mobility

A mixture of stretching and motor control strengthening will help improve your mobility and achieve your exercise goals.

Mobility classes address 3 key areas:

  1. Flexibility

    Think as this as how much range of motion you have in a joint when external force is applied.

    For example, you may use your other arm to bring your shoulder in front of your chest, or a partner could help you stretch your hamstrings out.

    These are both external forces.

    The first step is to return your joints to their acceptable range of motion.

  2. Motor Control

    Think of motor control as how much range of motion you have in a joint when just using the muscles to move the joint.

    For example a lying leg raise, you are lifting your leg with a straight knee through it’s range of motion.

    If you can get your leg to 90 degrees with assistance from a partner, but struggle to do the same using just your muscles, then you have a motor control issue.

  3. Stability

    The final stage is to ensure that your muscle have good stability.

    Using the deep squat as an example, this requires decent levels of flexibility and motor control.

    However if your knee rolls inwards when you squat, then you have a stabilisation issue in either your ankle or hips. This can lead to injury and should be addressed as soon as possible.
