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%.
How is Funktional Fitness different than any other Gym?
At Funktional Fitness we incorporate movements that mimic lifes 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 use no machines and focus on training movement, not muscles. And we have no membership fees.
I see I can choose from Private Training or Unlimited Group Training, what are the differences between the two?Private Training focuses on nutrition guidance, workout programs, and assisted stretches designed exclusively for your needs. Group training incorporates a lot of the same movements and exercises, but in a group setting. The benefits of GroupFit are camaraderie, cost, and the frequency of your workouts.
