Mobility vs. Strength

Updated: Apr 19, 2019

Why is striking a balance between the two so important?

Often, we are drawn to one or the other. Do you find yourself stretching and doing yoga ALL the time leaving little time for resistance training? Or are you go, go, go enjoying the spinning classes, HIIT workouts and lifting heavy weights?

In my 10 years of experience working in the fitness industry I have found that clients are drawn to one or the other. When left to work out on their own, they often stick to what they enjoy and either do not know how or don't want to branch out into different types of training. If you want to experience benefits and see change happen in your body, mind and ultimately life, you need to challenge yourself. Sometimes that means trying something new!

Our body adapts to change after 6-8 weeks of a consistent training routine. We are creatures of habit. Sometimes healthy habits are great for us, however in the exercise world if you find yourself doing the same type of training excessively everyday, you can actually put yourself at an increased risk for injury. If you find yourself stuck in a rut, a Kinesiologists can help. We are trained to provide BALANCED programming that will yield true results weeks, months and years down the road.
