Free Up Your Body to Move Easier and Perform Better in Everything You Do
Train at Home
Before summer, I was training for a hiking trip that would have a 4000-feet elevation gain over 6 miles peaking at 13k. I used Mobility as a warm-up for my training sessions for about 50 sessions, 5-days per week, leading up to this trip.
While going on some acclimatization hikes, I immediately noticed how I could traverse over, under, and around rocks and dead-fall with ease. My flexibility, mobility, and strength at weird joint angles was incredible. After that experience, I use Mobility for 15-minutes as a warm-up for every single training session. Having it integrated with Praxis makes it really easy to go through.
But if you’re reading this, chances are none of it helped as much as you wanted.
That’s why we created GMB Mobility. It’s an easy-to-follow practice to help you do the two fundamental things you need to build useful mobility:
This is the same strategy top athletes use to make sure they can easily access all the ranges their sports require. But we’ve boiled it down to a simple practice anyone can use to move better in the gym, dojo, outdoors, or wherever you do your thing.
The key is bringing together the two key elements of useful mobility: stretching and movement.
If you ever got a new baseball or softball glove as a kid you probably remember stretching it every which way to try to break it in. But if you wanted it to fit your hand and work well for catching balls you had to actually use it, too. Mobility is like that. Stretching is important, but if you want it to help you move better you have to actually move, too. Here’s how it works:
Clinically-backed PNF-style stretching protocol for efficient improvement
Increase flexibility and strength into and out of stretched positions
Trains your nervous system to allow greater functional range safely
Stretching is followed by targeted locomotion exercises in the same ranges
Teaches your body to control your new ranges of motion
Integrates ROM into practical movements for athletic performance
But for most people it’s not just one move or position. It’s a bunch of little things you get used to over time but end up sapping your performance.
That’s why GMB Mobility eases tightness throughout your body with a special emphasis on areas that support athletic performance.
Moving athletically requires every part of your body working well together, but that doesn’t mean each part contributes equally. We designed GMB Mobility with special emphasis on the areas that give you the biggest dividends in how your body performs and feels.
At the core of GMB Mobility is a full-body practice for easing restrictions from your feet to your neck, so you never have to cobble together different routines to hit all the important areas.
Each full-body session emphasizes one of the key body areas or ranges for athletic performance like your hips, shoulders, legs, or torso. So the flexibility and mobility you build translate directly to better performance.
Your hips and spine have more impact on how you move and perform than any other part of your body. So hip and back mobility is baked in throughout the program to give you a foundation of pain-free mobility in everything you do.
But anyone who’s done flexibility work knows consistency is key. So we organized GMB Mobility in a way that keeps you moving forward and learning new things while still getting better at the important stuff, so you look forward to seeing what’s new in each session.
We designed GMB Mobility with a cyclical structure so you’re not just doing the same few stretches day in and day out. Over the course of 42 sessions you cycle through different focus areas, looping back to revisit each one multiple times for continuous improvement with no boredom or stalling.
Start loosening up your whole body with focused progress in your hips and back. Incorporate with the first functional movement progressions to start moving better right away.
Build on your foundational mobility by cycling through legs, shoulders, and other important joints and ranges. Deepen your proficiency with basic locomotive skills and begin practicing next progressions.
Deepen mobility in all major body areas for noticeably more ease and freedom in athletic movements. Incorporate movement play as you get freer and more controlled in your fundamental movements.
We designed GMB Mobility to be repeatable with continuous results, so whether you start it again right away or come back to it in a year, you can keep improving your athletic mobility for life.
And the whole thing lives on our intuitive online platform you can access from anywhere.
You have a life with responsibilities, priorities, and stuff you enjoy. GMB Mobility adapts to the realities of your day-to-day so you can use it just as easily as a warm-up at the gym as you can on a recovery day at home—or wherever works for you.

I'm only on the 13th session of GMB Mobility and already I have gone days without pain in my whole body, especially my back. I have stopped taking my daily pain reliever. I feel free in the sense that I can move in a way that feels natural.
As a health care worker I feel I'm prepared to be unstoppable in every aspect of the job. My day is filled with so many opportunities that I can explore with confidence. Thank you to the GMB Team for making a incredible product. I will recommend you to all my friends and family.
I didn’t really understand how to stretch before or how to breathe while stretching. Grouping of specific areas also helped a lot because I didn’t understand that before either! Also the videos are short and to the point which is great because stretching is boring enough without having to listen to someone talk about it for hours or having to fast forward to the relevant parts. I really liked the format.
I strained, or pulled, or did something goofy with my lower back doing some deadlifts. It was a wake-up call for me. I hadn’t been prioritizing movement quality as well as I could. That's when I decided to get back into GMB.
I decided to sign up for Mobility. It makes for a great warm-up for my other training. I hit those movements and I just feel good. With my deadlifts I feel a lot more comfortable when I get down into the initial lifting part of the position. That reflects progress with my hips. With my shoulders, I used to get very tight in my chest and I would just have a little bit of random aches and pains here and there. I don’t ever have those anymore. And then with my back, I haven’t injured it since doing Mobility.
I want to be able to do the things that I do until I’m in the dirt. Mobility keeps me feeling good. I just don’t know what I would do in its place. I can’t think of a better alternative. To me, it’s the best option right now to keep moving.
Adding GMB Mobility to your routine doesn’t take much extra time, but it frees up your whole body to move with less tightness and more confidence in all your athletic and everyday activities.
Even if you can’t start immediately, or if you need to take things slow, that’s just fine. You can start when you want, take as long as you want, and repeat the program as many times as you want. GMB Mobility is yours for life including all future updates.
Give GMB Mobility an honest try. The fact is if you do the work, you will get results.
After 45 days if you’re not moving measurably, noticeably better, we don’t want your money. Send us an email, and we’ll give you a full refund that you can put towards a gym membership or a yoga mat. You can see all the details here.
Previously I was either doing dynamic stretches and static/PNF stretches separately. Now in my static/PNF stretching I always use the pattern of dynamic stretching followed by PNF as described in FF. I find the dynamic movements make the PNF less uncomfortable so it’s easier to spend more time stretching.
I also think that it reduces injury because the movements make me stronger near the current limits of my flexibility. The increased strength is difficult to measure but my kicking (tae kwon do) is much improved. The pancake stretch described in the program is one that I do nearly every day now.
I came to you 7 weeks ago and enrolled in the Mobility program as a 59-year-old with a hip problem. I'm now moving around like a 20-year-old! I've just enrolled for the Elements and Integral Strength programmes. Thank you GMB, for the wealth of knowledge and the work you all put in.
We’ve also taken the liberty of including the answers here, since the questions aren’t very enlightening on their own 😉
Every few months, we update all of our programs based on client feedback and new things we’ve learned. You’ll never have to pay for the most recent version.
You’ll never lose access to your programs. If you have to take time off, pick right back up where you started. Your training materials are always available.
If you ever get stuck or need help, you can easily send a message and get expert support from one of our coaches. We’re here to help.
Fo sho! GMB Mobility is a general mobility program, so it’s not specifically tailored for any sport, but we’ve selected exercises that will open your hips and shoulders, release tension in the back, free up rotation around your core, etc. It’s a great complement to your regular training, and the flexible scheduling makes it very easy to fit into your schedule.
We recommend 30 minutes, at least three times per week. But if you can only fit in 15 minutes some days that’s totally fine. The program will adapt to the time you have.
Most likely. If you are very overweight and unable to stand/sit from the floor without assistance, you may need to focus on weight reduction first. Otherwise, weight should not be a major issue. If you try the program and ever find that a particular exercise is difficult or painful, our support team will be happy to help you find a way to make it work.
Yup. This is not a workout. You might find yourself sweating a bit or breathing a bit heavier than usual, but as a general rule, this work doesn’t requires a great deal of strength or endurance.
Of course, if you’re completely out of shape we do encourage you to work on that, and we’ll do whatever we can to help. But there’s no minimum fitness prerequisites for Mobility.
Elements uses 3 core movement patterns to systematically help you build a foundation of strength, flexibility, and motor control. GMB Mobility uses proven flexibility exercises and functional movements, including some you’d recognize from Elements, to help you build functional range of motion.
We’ll hold hands and sing Kumbaya. Just kidding. Since you get lifetime access, many people opt to repeat it again immediately. You’ll know what’s right for you when the time comes.
That’s really hard to say. Lots of things can cause back pain, many of them requiring medical attention.
What we can promise is that you will ease restrictions, improve joint integrity, and build your kinesthetic awareness and control in the underlying structures where dysfunction can sometimes lead to back pain. In other words, we’re striking at a few of the root causes of some types of back pain.
