Stick Mobility Level 1


Stick Mobility is a training system that improves your mobility, stability, and strength.

Stick Mobility combines joint mobilization, strength training, and deep fascial stretching to increase athletic performance, reduce risk of injury, and speed recovery.
This Certification will revolutionize the way you train personally and with your clients. Level 1 takes you through joint mobilization, stretching, strengthening, and positional isometrics. You'll learn how to integrate these aspects into your one-on-one and group training sessions. We'll show you simple and effective ways to enhance mobility, body awareness, coordination, and strength with the combination of leverage, irradiation, articulation, and isometrics that will unlock the inhibited movements that prevent optimal function and health.

Our system is designed to be used as a companion to any training modality, or as a stand-alone program. Each trainer in the Stick Mobility family has their favorite method of training, whether it's kettlebells, barbells, or bodyweight movements. Regardless of what modality you specialize in, Stick Mobility will blend seamlessly into your program and make you and your clientele move better.

The Level 1 Certification is a two-day course that is primarily hands-on. We keep class sizes small so you can learn the fundamental principles and movements that will give you a solid foundation to build upon. The course is 20% lecture and 80% hands-on and may be physically and neurologically demanding. In preparation, we recommend watching our online Fundamentals Video Series available on our site or YouTube channel.

Workshop Coach
Dennis Dunphy
Dennis Dunphy is a co-creator/owner of StickMobility. He has been coaching in the fitness industry since 1999. His journey has seen him evolve into understanding the impact of mobility and its central importance in our daily lives.

Dennis grew up in Buffalo, NY and has always been actively involved in athletics, especially hockey. He has called San Jose, CA his home for the past 20 years now.

He holds an extensive background in several modalities such as kettlebells, Animal Flow, Indian Clubs, and mace training to name a few. He joined forces with Neal Valera and Mitch Taylor to create StickMobility 4 years ago. They have developed a system that teaches how to mobilize joints, activate & strengthen tissues, improve coordination, and increase body awareness and performance. All of this with a specially designed, strong flexible stick.

Stick Mobility FAQs
Is there any prerequisite for this course?
There are no prerequisites for this course.
Who should attend this course?
Personal Trainers, Strength & Conditioning Coaches, Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Yoga, and Pilates Instructors, as well as athletes and personal users looking to deepen their mobility knowledge and skills.
Who is using Stick Mobility?
We work with athletes, coaches, and medical practitioners from various areas of sports, fitness, and healthcare. From pro athletes to personal trainers, yoga instructors to kettlebell specialists, bodybuilders to chiropractors and physical therapists. Each one of them views movement from a different perspective. We work with them to understand how to apply the Stick Mobility principles into how they view movement with the goal of helping them reach their full potential.

Some professional sports teams who use Stick Mobility include The Cincinnati Bengals, The Raiders, LA Rams, The Baltimore Orioles, LA Angels, Atlanta Braves, San Diego Padres, LA Kings, Anaheim Ducks, Philadelphia 76'ers, Indiana Pacers, Minnesota Timberwolves, and the Denver Nuggets.

PGA Golfers, Paul Casey, Jason Day and Dustin Johnson have implemented our system with their personal trainers to help increase their flexibility and rotation.
Why are Stick Mobility exercises more effective than basic stretches?
Stick Mobility uses the formula: joint range of motion + joint stability + neuromuscular drive = mobility.

Stretching by itself lacks these crucial elements. We know that our muscles get tight for a reason, and no matter how much we stretch, without the right strength levels, they won't let go. This is typically caused by weakness in one area causing tension in another.

For example – tighten the hip flexors, like you do when you sit down all day, and your hamstrings will become overactive when you extend the hip. Tightness makes you more susceptible to injury.

The neuromuscular drive benefits from Stick Mobility come as your body is better able to coordinate your muscles as one unified mechanism to produce movement. The better balanced your muscles are, the better they can coordinate your kinetic chain.
What are the benefits of integrating Stick Mobility into my training program?
    Through combining joint mobilization, strength training, and deep fascial stretching with the Stick Mobility system we have seen users improve their:

    • Functional range of motion
    • Joint stability
    • Balance
    • Posture
    • Full-body strength
    • Coordination
    • Tissue quality
    • Athletic performance
    • Body alignment
    • Muscle activation
    • Motor control
    • Body awareness
    • Reduced risk of injury
    • Recovery from injury
    • Faster recovery after exercise
    Do I need more than one stick?
    We recommend purchasing a bundle of 3 sticks (two long sticks, one short) in order to utilize the full range of exercises in the training system and videos. Having multiple sticks gives you access to a wider range of full-body stretches and strengthening moves, allows you to efficiently work both sides of the body at once with two tall sticks, and access the short-stick-only specific exercises.

    The use of more than one stick is both a regressionary or progressionary aspect of our system. Stability work can be challenging and two sticks provide 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. Stretches and movements may involve two sticks while hanging, twisting, pushing, and pulling in opposing directions to reach maximal ranges.

    *Good for you, we offer 2-day live workshop which includes Stick Mobility Bundle!*
    What is the Mobility Stick made from?
    The Mobility Stick is made with a custom blend of synthetic plastic and natural rubber designed to achieve the balance of flexibility, strength, and grip needed for the full range of Stick Mobility exercises.

    We describe the Mobility Stick as a simple tool used to create tension, leverage, stability, and body awareness. It provides kinesthetic and visual feedback to users and coaches.
    Are there any special care guidelines for the Mobility Stick?
      • We recommend you do not expose your Mobility Sticks to prolonged extreme temperatures as this may compromise the structural integrity of the sticks.
      • Do not leave your Mobility Sticks inside your vehicle in hot temperatures as this can cause unwanted bending of the sticks.
      • Store your sticks either upright or if horizontal support the stick at each end and in the middle to avoid potential bending over time.
      • When in use we recommend spinning the stick after each rep so you don't always bend the stick in the same direction.
      • One objective with Stick Mobility exercises is to create tension by flexing the stick. Although rare, excessive over flexion of the stick can result in stick damage and breakage. The sticks are built with a custom blend of materials designed to achieve a specific balance of flex and strength. Excessive over flexion is not part of the training exercises and not required to achieve the benefits of the system. Please follow the flexion examples from our training videos and/or the guidance of a Certified Stick Mobility Instructor.
