Improve How You Move With This Free Mobility Workout

Get ready to stretch the possibilities of your training with our brand-new Sweat program, Mobility & Strength in Motion.

Created by New Zealand-based trainer and mobility specialist Kelly MacDonald, this 6-week program is designed to increase your range of motion, flexibility, strength, posture and body alignment to help you move every day with more freedom and confidence.

Rethink what you know about mobility training, because this program is about so much more than a good stretch.

“Mobility is often thought of as just stretching, but it is so much more than that,” explains Kelly. “Mobility is about the ability of your joints and the strength of all the stabilising muscles to get your body into different positions."

In each session, you’ll find a warm-up, activation, combined mobility and strength exercises, and a cooldown. Ready to give one of the most in-demand training styles in the Sweat app a go? We’ve got a free workout from week one of the program.

You'll need access to the following equipment to get started:

  • A pair of dumbbells
  • A yoga mat
  • A fitball
  • A foam roller
  • A resistance band
  • A slant board
  • An incline bench
