Functional Fitness


September 27, 2015 – 


The history of fitness is very interesting and follows the path of evolution of mankind. Man had a constant voice in the back of his head saying, “Run for your life?” Physical development followed the natural path that was determined by the practical demands of life in a wild landscape as well as the vital need to avoid threats and seize opportunities for survival. Ironically, today many of us may find it challenging to get up off the floor.

Over recent years new and interesting fitness gadgets have been invented to strengthen muscles so we could move our bodies better. Not too many years ago gyms offered a plethora of machines to go and SIT on to imitate fitness. The popularity of training equipment, systems, and fad diets is mostly the result of marketing and not a genuine attempt to help a generally out-of-shape society reach higher levels of fitness and well-being. In this age, when our homes and gyms are cluttered with fitness gadgets, the simplest and most effective method for developing strength and losing fat has largely been overlooked – knowing how to move your own body safely (what we call Functional Fitness).

Call it what you will but if you are not able to comfortably squat down and get back up without any effort … there is trouble ahead. The Functional training we do at FIT works! You are using your body in a functional way and differently all the time! The one problem that we all face in this day and age is our busy schedules. My daily reading at the side of my bed today reads “There is time and space for everything I want to do today.” Huh … maybe my busy body should prioritize.

IF you cannot comfortably squat down and tie your shoes then it is time to relearn how to do just that and get better from the ground up. Call today!

In good health,

“So many older people, they just sit around all day long and they don’t get any exercise. Their muscles atrophy, and they lose their strength, their energy and vitality by inactivity.” – Jack LaLane
