Get in Shape with “Real Life” Exercises through Functional Training
By incorporating functional training in a group training atmosphere, you’re helping your body to “function” better in everyday life, doing every day tasks. Training functionally means that you’ll use movements that imitate, in some way, your regularly used movements and body positions – strengthening your body and improving overall fitness in daily life.
*Fitness Fact: The functional training method has roots in rehabilitation therapy and is used daily in rehab, sports, and physical therapy establishments.
Now that we’ve had our functional training program for years, results are speaking for themselves. Members are raving about the program and can’t seem to get enough of it!
So what makes our program so successful?
It’s built around two solid goals and principles: RESULTS and FUN.
We create an atmosphere of fun, camaraderie, and friendly competition through group interaction, high fives, partner exercises and a “big finish” at the end of each session for a last pop of energy.
We advocate for educated trainers who understand body mechanics, physiology, progressions, and injury protection.
Our trainers are extremely passionate about fitness and are known as some of the best motivators around.
We educate our members not just on HOW to execute a move, but explain what the benefits are, which muscle group(s) it works, what modifications can be used and what progressions to add to step it up a notch.
Our education of members extends to explaining how and why a given workout is chosen for the day.
A Sneak Peak into our Group/TEAM Training Program

Functional Training Exercise Examples
If you have small children, you’re often bending over to pick them up and put them down numerous times a day. There’s not exactly a machine on the circuit to cover that range of motion, so your Trainer may have you lift a sandbag from a squatting position, place it on a shelf and then repeat the movement in the opposite direction. Trainers can add progression to add strength and increase the fun factor by getting your group involved with high-fiving or some kind of interaction after every 5 reps.
How often do you carry groceries or shopping bags from the car, up the stairs and into your home? We do it all the time, so why not train our bodies to handle that type of movement using heavy weights? Our trainers often set up plyometric boxes and have our members hold kettle bells, walking up the boxes, setting them down, and walking back down.
Other functional equipment that we utilize in our workouts and routines are ropes, val slides, Bosu balls, medicine balls, resistance bands, and slam balls.
