Vinyasa Flow - Yoga is a great way to improve your mobility as it promotes myofascial release, which is release deep into the soft tissues of your body. Adding regular yoga classes to your fitness routine will increase your flexibility and range of motion, increase muscle activation and decrease your risk of injury as your body becomes more pliable. Plus, it has the added benefit of keeping your mind calm and centred. Book in.
TRX Suspension - Flexibility and mobility are two different things, and one doesn't always lead to the other. Flexibility is the total range of motion around a joint in a passive exercise, while mobility is the amount of functional movement around a joint while in active motion. TRX benefits both, by adding resistance and leverage to a stretch, meaning you can safely move the body through a greater range of motion than you might otherwise be able to, improving your overall body mechanics and posture.
