Functional Fitness

Practicing functional exercises improves performance of everyday activities, enhancing independence, mobility and safety.

How It Works

Our Functional Fitness program is a personalized approach to health and wellness that works for everyone no matter their age or goals. It is a continual journey of education and discovery that teaches us how our bodies work, and how exercise can correct the pain that many of us deal with on a daily basis. Over a lifetime weak structural movement patterns while performing everyday activities will lead to back pain, neck soreness and tightness, knee damage, and other signs of increased wear and tear. These weak movement patterns also create general levels of fatigue and soreness.  Through neuromuscular training we can teach the body how to move more efficiently, and strengthen the muscles needed to do so; thereby, correcting painful movement patterns, preventing future injury, and improving performance in everyday activities. This program focuses on exercises that improve posture, structural integrity, balance, muscular strength, agility, and consciousness of how to move in a way that is best for your body. Each individual moves differently, which is why personalization of an exercise program is absolutely critical. This program engages the brain and encourages clients to connect to and understand their body. Movement analyses are performed on an ongoing basis by Functional Fitness certified trainers to detect weak structural movement patterns, replacing them with strength and function. Our functional trainers empower our clients to participate in and help shape their own fitness.
