Mobility Class Description

CrossFit Progression’s Movement and Mobility class

  • This class is more than just stretching! We will be using CrossFit’s 10 foundational movements as a way to develop better quality movement and mobility. Each class we will practice one of the foundational movements and explain different¬†strategies¬†to ¬†prepare for and increase the quality of that particular movement.¬†

Class goals (from Kelly Starrett’s movement and mobility seminar)
