WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL TRAINING?
Functional training trains complete body movements, as opposed to isolating one muscle at a time. This provides you better muscular balance and joint stability, while decreasing the chance of injury. Lean and defined muscle tone is attained throughout this style of training because of the multitude of directions and multitude of muscles and stabilizers utilized throughout each exercise. Functional Training studies have also shown users to have a 58% greater increase in strength over fixed-form groups (machines). Their improvements in balance have been 196% higher over fixed groups and also reported an overall decrease in joint pain by 30%.Our methods focus on improving your STRENGTH, ENDURANCE, and MOBILITY.
How is Funktional Fitness similar or different from Crossfit?
We are similar to Crossfit because: We both utilize functional training movements and strength programs. We both build great community and camaraderie, and we both care about our members results.
We are different to Crossfit because: We do very little Olympic lifting with barbells. And we don’t do competitive workouts against other times.
How is Funktional Fitness different than a Box Gym?
At Funktional Fitness we incorporate movements that mimic life’s everyday activities. We utilize methods like PHA (Peripheral Heart Action) which involves training your whole body in a session, thus increasing blood circulation and producing the best results by lowering body fat, and increasing your lean body mass. We train movement, not muscles. All of our workouts are planned a month in advanced. And you are always led by a Coach.
I see I can choose from Private, Semi-Private, or Group Coaching, what are the differences between the three?
Private Coaching focuses on nutrition guidance, your own training needs, and assisted stretches designed exclusively for you. Semi-Private Coaching is a smaller groups of 2-5 people, therefore attention is to each person than a large group and movements can be adjusted easier to meet the needs of everyone in the small group. Group Coaching incorporates a lot of the same movements and exercises, but in a group setting of 10 – 20 people. The benefits of GroupFit are camaraderie, cost, and the frequency of your workouts.
*ALL of our programs are lead by one of our highly trained and certified Personal Trainer (Lifestyle and Fitness Coach).

If GroupFit is what I want and need, is there a type of condition that I have to be in?
Yes, we recommend that you are free of joint painful problems, good basic cardiovascular health ( jogging 450 meters (one block) and good joint mobility.
