What is Functional Fitness?
Functional fitness refers to the exercises you do to help better be able to move in your daily life. You work on twisting, lifting, pushing, bending, pulling, loading, hauling, and squatting. Functional fitness is not focused on a single motion or area of your body, but instead helps strengthen all your major joints.
The kinds of exercises you can expect to do as part of a one-on-one functional fitness program are:
- Pull-ups and push-ups
- Squats Rowing machine TRX (suspension training)
- Kettlebell work
- Ab and core exercises
- Upper body lifting
With a personalized functional fitness training program at Southpaw Fitness Fort Collins, you’ll get an intense mix of strength training and aerobic exercise. It’s similar to interval training as well, with bursts of intense activity followed by intervals of lighter activity. I style my functional fitness workouts as a sort of fitness boot camp that provides a whole-body workout.
The Benefits of Physical Lifestyle Training
Strengthening your whole body and refining daily movements like bending, pulling, and pushing has enormous benefits. Better movement patterns and more efficiency are two obvious advantages to completing an adaptive fitness program, but you may also see:
- Better coordination
- Higher calorie burn
- Improved agility and balance
- Stronger injury prevention
- Faster injury recovery
- Stronger core
- Better flexibility
- Better posture and less back pain
- Increased speed
- A deeper understanding of your body
By doing regular functional fitness programs with me at Fort Collins-based Southpaw Fitness, you’ll become more in tune with your body. You’ll feel stronger and faster and better able to anticipate what your body needs. This deeper mindfulness is also what leads to stronger injury prevention and faster recovery time.
Why Southpaw Fitness?
You can easily find functional fitness classes at a gym, but you are grouped together with several other people and don’t receive personalized attention. Why does that matter? With adaptive fitness, you must be sure you’re doing the exercises properly and using the appropriate amount of weight for your body. One trainer for 15-20 people means you are more likely to make mistakes that the trainer doesn’t catch, risking injury.
At Southpaw Fitness, all training is one-on-one, so you’ll have my full attention throughout your entire session. Not only will I develop a functional fitness program adapted to your needs, but I’ll also ensure you are carrying it out properly and constantly working toward improvement.
