Keep Yourself Safe and Healthy with Exercises to Help With Real-Life Activities and Movements

Exercise influences how we age and helps us stay healthy.

Regular, everyday activity, provides more energy, a lower chance of injury as you age, and improves your ability to fight chronic conditions.

But this doesn’t mean you have to do heavy-weight training exercises.

What Is Functional Fitness?

Functional Fitness is the body’s ability to perform tasks (exercise, movement, and maintenance) to maintain health and well-being. It’s a process or cycle that continually strengthens and modifies the body in response to a stimulus.

Functional Fitness is not a single technique, exercise, or exercise combination, but rather a method of exercise that integrates each component of fitness. The elements include cardiovascular, muscular, stability, flexibility, and endurance.

What Do Our Trainers Think About Functional Fitness?

“Functional Fitness is very important and helpful as you age as it develops your mobility and strength. With a little effort and proper instruction, you can experience a drastic improvement in your mobility.”

Regular Fitness for Everyday Activities

After the age of 30, our muscles start to break down. To reduce the speed of how fast this happens we need to keep our muscles engaged and continuously have everyday movement.

But this doesn’t mean you have to work out and train like an Olympic athlete through traditional strength training. You can get a great workout using a few simple tools and weights that will prevent muscle breakdown and help overall fitness. It’s less about targeting multiple muscle groups and looking at your workout routine as an entire body workout.

A Few Tools and Systems We Use:

  • Kettlebells
  • Power Training
  • TRX® Band Training
  • Strength Training
  • High-intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
  • Metabolic Conditioning
  • Cardio
  • Endurance Training
  • Functional training

Through regular exercise, you’ll feel more energetic, stay functional so you can do the things you love, and maintain a healthy body. Additional benefits include improved posture, minimizing risks from falls, and staying strong.

The Importance of Functional Training

We know that when it comes to health and fitness the two most important things are – Move Your Body and Maintain Your Body.

In order to benefit from exercise, the body needs to be built up to be able to do the types of movements that it uses during activity. Functional training is not just strength training or bodyweight exercises, but rather strengthens the body so that it can do the types of activity it will be doing in everyday life.

But Functional Exercise Has Other Benefits

Adding to the ability to perform daily activities and common movements easier with less worry of injury, feeling more energetic, and looking better. The new functional training you do also helps to regulate and improve internal functions.
