Mobility for Endurance Athletes

When it comes to performance gains, mobility work is something that is often overlooked as a performance enhancer. If your body isn’t moving optimally, how can it perform optimally?  For many age group athletes, mobility training is the low hanging fruit that could help boost performance but, much like strength work, it’s something that gets overlooked. Regular mobility training allows for greater range of motion, improved movement efficiency, and decreased risk of injury. What endurance athlete doesn’t want that?  Join Phaedra Kennedy for a 30 minute full body mobility session, designed to help improve your circulation and improve post workout muscle tension.
