Stick Mobility is intended to help users increase their fitness, strength, mobility, muscle activation, movement and range of motion. It can also lead to faster rehabilitation due to injury.
The stick is used in conjunction with classes and exercises that utilize the flexibility and strength of the rod to propel your body into peak fitness.
Ideally, the 7 foot Mobility Stick and the 5 foot Mini Mobility Stick are sized for people who are taller than 6”.
We recommend the 6 foot and 4 foot Mobility Sticks for those under 6” tall.
The use for more than one stick is both a regressionary or progressionary aspect of our system.
Stability work can be challenging for some people, two sticks allow for that added stability so that the body and the central nervous system can learn to adapt to the new stimulus.
Some exercises and stretches test contralateral and ipsilateral patterns which require the use of more than one stick. Multi-directional stretching is a facet of Stick Mobility.
Some moves involve rotating the trunk in the transverse plane and pushing the arms in opposite directions to allow for optimal range of motion.
Stretches and movements may also involve hanging, twisting, pushing, and pulling in opposing directions to reach maximal ranges.
The double ‘Monkey Hang’ is a perfect example of why two sticks can be more beneficial than one in some cases.
Pro Model Version Mobility is for everyone, not just the small petite population. Our Pro Model stick is meant for people who are very strong and/or over 15 1/2 stone +. The Pro Model, at 1.5 inches in diameter, is ½ an inch thicker than the standard version.
Our clients with larger hands will appreciate the larger grip diameter. It takes much more force to flex this stick. This will give our larger clients more security when doing such moves as the “monkey hang”, which may put a large amount of flex on the stick.
Stronger clients will also enjoy the benefits of the Pro Model when doing the “human bow and arrow”, which requires force to push the stick away from your center line. The Pro Model is the latest tool in our Stick Mobility arsenal aimed at helping you move better.

The nature of the Mobility Sticks means that there may be a slight bend in the product either when you receive it or after using it for a while – this does not affect the integrity of the Stick or its functionality. Sticks with a slight curvature are not faulty and do not need to be replaced.
