The Importance of Mobility!

Our Personal Trainers in Abu Dhabi know that there is a lot more to training and being fit than just walking in to a gym and bench pressing and squatting as much as you can. While lifting and pressing and much as you can is fantastic, how long can you keep this up? At some point your body will start taxing you for the amount of stress you’re putting into it.

This is why our personal trainers encourage flexibility and mobility training. Flexibility and mobility play a huge roll in overall health and fitness performance. Knowing how to structure your training routine so that it includes mobility, flexibility, intensity and recovery is what will determine whether or not you can do this for the years to come.

There are many different ways of performing mobility and including it into your program. If you do not have a personal trainer, we recommend hiring one so they can guide you through this process, but if that is not an option for whatever reason use YouTube or Google to look for different examples and start including them into your daily routine until you find what works best for you.

Our personal trainers recommend that you start every workout with a 5-10 minutes of a cardio based warm up followed by 10 to 20 minutes of mobility work and then ending your strength training with 10 to 20 minutes of stretching. If you do this consistently you will notice how much your overall training program will improve and also help you avoid injury as much as possible.
