- an approach that combines all elements necessary to build functional fitness: strength, endurance, agility. When we refer to “functional fitness” we mean fitness that helps you in your day-to-day life…lifting children & less-animated objects, maintaining good posture as you work and move around, feeling energetic and supple throughout the day. We don’t just mean the type of fitness that makes bathing suit shopping a less stressful experience, though that’s certainly a positive side-effect that you’d also enjoy.
- varied, so that boredom doesn’t set in (for your muscles or your brain) and lead you to skip predictable, repetitive workouts.
- efficient: workouts consist of a series of warm-up exercises, some training on the specific skills required to do the workout that’s on deck that day (e.g., proper form for a push-up, or a deadlift, or wall-balls, etc…..there’s some terminology that we use but nothing that you need to be intimidated by, ANYBODY can do this stuff, seriously), then the workout itself, and then a brief cool-down. Depending on the day, the main workout may last from 10 mins to 30 mins. From start to finish we’ll be done in 45-60 mins. Regardless of the duration of the main part of the workout, we promise that you’ll be sweating and breathing hard, and that each workout will help you progress towards your fitness goals.
- a supportive community of people who are striving to improve their fitness. We don’t compete aggressively against each other; we leave our egos at the door and support each other. Working out with a group provides encouragement and community that you don’t find with personal training, but avoids the impersonal anonymity that you sometimes find at larger, more traditional gyms.
