Read more about The Mobility Project, led by Chris Kalisz:
Have you ever watched the way a baby crawls or how a monkey swings from tree to tree? Have you seen the way a cat will stretch itself out or how a frog can launch itself long distances with such grace? The one thing that the baby, the monkey, the cat and the frog all have in common is mobility.
Fitness is only a small piece of the puzzle that is movement and mobility. The definition of mobility is the ability to move or be moved freely and easily. Our mobility is at the center of every other fitness aspect, ranging from strength, endurance and flexibility to balance, agility and speed. When the body is able to move in the manner it was originally designed to do, pain and stiffness are reduced and function and performance increase.
The human body is one of the most complex and fascinating pieces of equipment ever designed. Imagine that we have the most intricate piece of software, the human brain, paired with the most intricate piece of hardware, the human body. We have the ability to mimic almost any animal movement pattern from climbing, crawling, running, and rolling to swimming, swinging, jumping and twisting. The software and hardware are in place; however, we seem to have lost the manual to our own equipment.
The Mobility Project introduces new concepts into the “traditional” ways of thinking when it comes to fitness, offering participants the ability to actively make a change in the way they feel, the way they move, and the way they view fitness.
JoyRide’s new class, JoyMoblity, is a foundational and functional movement and performance enhancement program that infuses a combination of yoga-like stretching, creative dance, martial arts and animal flow patterns.
“Chris changed my life after I was scheduled to have surgery on my IT Band this Christmas. I have been a dancer my entire life, and over the last two years have been in extreme pain. After 3 doctors and 4 physical therapists, with little to no relief, surgery was offered as the BEST option. I worked with Chris for 5 sessions before going back to college and his mobility project took my pain from a 9 out of 10, all the way to a 2 out of 10. It’s the best I have felt in 3 years and I haven’t even thought of surgery since Chris!” -Allie Daut
