GMB – Mobius – Agility and Coordination for Athletic Movement
IS MOBIUS FOR ME?
If you’ve already done our Elements program or you want to boost your agility and control for your martial art, CrossFit, or strength training, you’re ready for Mobius.*
- Want to improve your performance in your sport, martial art, or other discipline? Use Mobius alongside your usual training to develop better responsiveness and control in dynamic situations.
- Looking for something to complement your strength training? You can use Mobius as a warm-up or active recovery to boost your athletic awareness and coordination.
If you’re just starting out with this sort of training we recommend Elements.
THE 4 BASIC ATTRIBUTES OF ATHLETIC AGILITY
Lots of people would love to move with more intuitive confidence and grace but don’t know where to start. Mobius makes it simple. We broke down athletic agility into four underlying attributes that the program helps you build.
Control in All Directions & Angles
Most “athletic” training is focused on strength and explosiveness, usually in straight lines. But real sports, martial arts, etc. happen at all angles. We’ll help you prepare your body to move in whatever ways the situation demands.
Dynamic Strength & Responsiveness
Real life comes at you fast. Knowing how to do something perfectly in isolation only goes so far when you have to adapt quickly to other people and complex environments. We’ll help you build resilience and confidence to respond quickly to unexpected factors.
Spatial Awareness & Proprioception
When someone says they’re “clumsy” they mean they don’t know how their body is moving in relation to their environment. We’ve chosen specific movement patterns to help you build your sense of body and spatial awareness.
Fluid Linking of Complex Movements
Great athletes aren’t just good at sport-specific skills like shooting a basketball or doing an arm bar. What sets them apart is how they move between skills quickly and smoothly to accomplish their goal. We’ll help you develop the body control to move fluidly between complex skills.
These attributes might not sound sexy—which is why most people never work on them outside of higher-level athletic coaching—but they’re your foundation for feeling more confident and controlled in dynamic situations.
And it actually doesn’t take that much to start improving them. The key is focusing on one of the most neglected areas of movement skill: transitional movements.
FUNDAMENTAL TRANSITIONAL MOVEMENTS
There are thousands of YouTube channels where you can learn sport-specific skills, but what’s harder to teach are the skills between the skills that make you better in all your sports and activities. We boiled it down to 4 classes of transitional movement that develop your body’s athletic attributes so you can move with more grace and agility in everything you do.
Rotations & Twisting
Unless all you care about is the 100 yard dash, chances are the activities you enjoy don’t happen only in straight lines. We’ll help you build mobility and control in rotational and twisting movements so you can adapt to whatever life throws at you.
Getting Down & Up
Something you hear in virtually every activity is some form of, “Bend your knees!” We’ll help you build strength and confidence through the whole range of bent-knee positions, from standing, all the way down to the ground, and back up.
Falling with Style
If you’ve ever pushed the edges of your athletic abilities, you know that sometimes you end up on the ground. And fear of falling is one of the biggest barriers to giving your all. We’ll help you get comfortable with rolls and other ground movements so you can fall with style.
In a lot of sports, the most you have to do on the ground is get back up. But we’ve chosen ground transitions that will develop your shoulder strength and stability and improve your hip mobility, to make you better in all your activities.
MAKE COMPLEX MOVEMENTS FEEL SECOND NATURE WITH SMART PROGRAMMING
In a dynamic athletic environment you don’t have time to think about which skill to use, or where your arms and legs need to go. You need your body to just know what to do. The programming in Mobius will help you progressively master and internalize these skills, so they’re ready for you when you need them.
1. Skill Acquisition
You start with the fundamental progressions of each skill, training your body and brain to get the basics right before moving on to more advanced variations.
2. Skill Progression
As you master the basics, you’ll practice progressively advanced variations to build competence and confidence in each movement.
3. Skill Combinations
As you get more coordinated, you start linking moves together in fun, challenging combinations that teach your body to adapt in more complex scenarios.
4. Creative Play
By the end of the program you’ll be ready to start linking the moves together in your own creative ways, and incorporating your skills into all your activities.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We’ve also taken the liberty of including the answers here, since the questions aren’t very enlightening on their own 😉
What equipment is required for Mobius?
No equipment needed—just a little bit of floor space. And you’ll probably want to start out on a softer surface like a carpet or a mat.
What’s the difference between this and Elements or Vitamin?
Mobius is a structured program for building transitional skill. It’s designed as a next step after Elements for people who want more agility.
Vitamin is an exploration of various movement types for developing general motor control and building practice habits.
They have completely different exercise selections and practice styles to carry out their purposes.
Is there an app for this program?
It’s built from the ground up to work great on your phone. You can even add a button to your home screen for easy access. You just use it through your browser instead of downloading it through an app store.
Is Mobius okay for women?
Absolutely. The movements you learn in Mobius will help anyone move with more agility and confidence.
Am I too old or fat or (fill in the blank) to do this program?
It all depends on your current capability level. Mobius isn’t a beginner program. If you’re just starting out or coming back to training after a good while away, we’d recommend starting with our Elements program. It’ll help you build the foundation you need to do things like Mobius with confidence.
But if you’ve been training consistently and have a solid foundation, Mobius will help you take your agility to the next level.
How long do the workouts take?
Mobius sessions are adjustable depending on how much time you have that day. So if you have 15–45 minutes two or three times a week, that’s enough to get good results.
What kind of results can I expect?
Mobius will help you build agility, coordination, and responsiveness for all your activities. What that feels like is being able to move with more confidence and grace, especially in dynamic environments like sports fields, martial arts mats, or games of tag at your kid’s birthday party.
Will I lose fat or gain muscle by going through this program?
Mobius is designed to help you build athletic agility, not change your body composition. So while you’ll probably build some strength and muscle, don’t expect big changes in the mirror just from doing this program.
