About Stick Mobility

Stick Mobility is a training system that improves your flexibility, strength, and coordination.

The system combines joint mobilization, strength training, and active stretching to increase athletic performance, reduce risk of injury, and accelerate recovery.

The exercises use our custom-designed Training Sticks as tools to improve range of motion, muscle activation, coordination, and body awareness to build a strong foundation for better movement.

Our system is based on the scientific principles of leverage, stability, feedback, irradiation, isometrics, and coordination and is accredited by:

– Personal Training Academy Global
– National Academy of Sports Medicine
– Aerobics & Fitness Association of America
– National College of Exercise Professionals
– National Strength & Conditioning Association
– Alberta Fitness Leadership Certification Association 

We focus on helping coaches, athletes, and medical practitioners. 
From pro athletes to personal trainers, strength and conditioning coaches to physical therapists and chiropractors. 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 such as Paul Casey, Jason Day, and Dustin Johnson have implemented Stick Mobility with their trainers to increase mobility to improve their swing, rotational power to hit the ball further and reduce their risk of injury. (Our Golf Mobility Program won Golf Digest Magazine’s 2019 and 2020 Editors Choice Award for the Best Fitness Stretching Aid.)

Dennis Dunphy

Dennis’s first endeavor as a fitness professional began in 1999 at 24 Hour Fitness and soon after started his own training business. Many of his clients are 40+ who experience physical issues and pain, and his greatest reward comes from helping others improve physically and mentally. His journey has led to an ever-increasing knowledge of the human body and how all the body’s systems work in unison, which led him to co-create Stick Mobility in 2015 to help others achieve better movement and health.
