 Perform better, look better, feel better

What’s the Difference Between Flexibility & Mobility?

Flexibility is defined as the amount of passive range of motion you have. It relates to how much a muscle can lengthen passively (i.e., with assistance). So if you’re on your back, and someone picks up your right foot to stretch and gently push your leg towards you, the point at which the leg stops moving indicates your flexibility.

Mobility, on the other hand, is how far you can move a joint through its range of motion under your body’s own control (i.e. without any external influence). If you lie on your back and use the strength of your muscles to lift your right leg, flexing at the hip, the point at which you couldn’t move the leg anymore would be considered your active range of motion – your mobility.

Being Flexible & Improving Mobility

While being flexible is great, our focus as personal trainers is to improve your mobility. We want a good range of motion in each joint, as well as the ability to master control of your body. Dynamic mobility exercises help to provide you with the strength and stability for improved range of motion, great posture and comfortable movement for life. This means being able to move easily, pain-free, into your later years.

Stretch & Strengthen Your Body

When people are looking to become more flexible, they often think this means doing lots of stretching and yoga classes. It can be tempting to join lots of yoga classes and jump into fancy moves like handstands! This might feel fun but it’s not the best use of your time. In our experience, it’s super important to first take some time learning a bit about your individual body and what help it will benefit the most from.

Which Areas Need Stretching?

Specifically, it’s key to know which areas need stretching, which need strengthening, and where your mobility is most limited. Our coaches will be able to assess your body and spot what different areas need work. They can support you with a program unique to you, designed for you and your body.

If you’re someone with lots of natural flexibility but little strength, your coach will tailor your program to develop strength that you can use to improve your control of movement and help you develop more mobility.

If you have little range of motion, but good control – then chances are you will need to work on improve both your flexibility, via a personalised stretching routine, AND your mobility. This will happen as your coaches introduce new movements. They will continually assess your performance and movement and adapt your exercises as you progress.

WHAT ARE YOUR FITNESS GOALS?

 

Can mobility work help my back to feel better?

Many of us spend far too much time sitting at a desk all day (especially thanks to online working in lockdown!), which we all know isn’t the best thing we can do for our health and fitness… In fact, our increasingly sedentary behaviour is the number one cause for lower back issues. It’s vitally important that you make an effort to get up and try to move a bit every hour.

As well as staying active during the day, incorporating mobility training will make a world of difference with lower back pain. Lots of our clients feel like new after just a few weeks of combining targeted strength training and intelligent stretching and mobility work.

In a way, these kind of mobility exercises are about training our body how to “be human” again and use our body in the way it was designed to be used. It can take some practice to learn and get used to moving your body in a new, different way, but it’s undoubtedly one of the best ways to support your joint health and work towards pain free movement for life.

Can mobility training help me if I don’t do sport?

Absolutely. Whatever health and fitness goals you have, including mobility work in your training is crucial when it comes to working towards easy, niggle-free movement, both now and in your later years. At Fitness Lab, we encourage people to think deeply about what “fitness” means. Sure, we all have aesthetic and performance goals to achieve in a short or medium time frame, and our coaches will make sure your training plan covers those as a priority. But let’s also think in a different way and look at our longer term health… We all want to be able to run around with our grand kids and pick them up without having to feel worried about “doing our back in”, or having to stand on the side lines when they play because of “dodgy knees”.

At Fitness Lab we offer a variety of nutritional support services from expert consultations with our industry leading Nutrition partners to to tailor made food delivered to your door with our Chef partner.

STRENGTH TRAINING

At Fitness Lab, we truly believe everyone should be doing some form of strength training. No other form of exercise matches this if strength and muscle gain is the end goal. This is of course obvious, but what is often overlooked is why we should aim to build muscle for more strength.

WEIGHT LOSS

Fat loss is arguably one of the most positive outcomes from exercise and directly leads to a large number of health improvements. Through an in-depth understanding of how the body functions and responds to certain training stimulus, your coach will tailor your training plan

A WORD FROM OUR HIGHLY VALUED CLIENTS 

 

TRULY PERSONAL – FULLY INCLUSIVE – DESIGNED FOR YOU  

    5 star review  I've been coming into Fitness Lab Soho for my PT sessions regularly for few years now as I find everything about it perfect. From the location of the studio, to the space and cleanliness of the gym but most importantly the team of instructors - they are very professional! After the initial consultation I was presented with an individual and detailed approach to my fitness needs (I have a shoulder injury hence needed to be careful). It has been extremely beneficial for my body and mind as well as helped me to get closer to my goals! If you're looking for an individually tailored fitness/diet programme give it try at Fitness Lab Soho.

    5 star review  I have MS so have limited mobility. Ash has drawn me up a program to strengthen my core and upper body using resistance bands. The exercises, their purpose, which muscles were being worked were all clearly explained and demonstrated. Very excited about getting into the routine of using the program and I'm sure I will be going back to Ash for add ons. 10/10

Client Results from Personal Training

“I was skeptical about trying online personal training to begin with – I didn’t think I’d find online training as effective as seeing my trainer in the gym face-to-face. I’m glad to say I was wrong! I’ve tried a few online training classes, but my remote training with Fitness Lab has been my best online training experience so far. It’s been 6 months and I have no plans to stop now. I’ve seen amazing results in terms of weight loss, overall fitness and best of all I am happier in my body than I have ever been. YAY!!!”

“Best online personal training I have tried. Really helped to keep me on track with my workout plan and diet during lockdown. The coaching is highly personalised and my personal trainer knows I have a busy life and gives me support me when it comes to finding time to exercise. Exercise definitely boosted my mental health during lockdown”

“I didn’t think online personal training was going to be right for me, but after giving it a go I’ve been pleasantly surprised. The coaching is highly personal and in a short time I’ve already seen an improvement in my fitness and body composition. I used to find myself dreading the gym but now I actually look forward to every training session. Excited to see my results in another 3 months!”
