Functional training will aim to provide you with the strength, endurance, power, speed, flexibility, and range of motion you need to thrive throughout your life. We utilize basic functional movement patterns such as pushing, pulling, squatting, rotating, carrying, and gait patterns (walking and running) every day. Through Dynamic Training, Metabolic Conditioning, and Extreme Training, our functional training program will utilize exercises that are aimed to improve your movement proficiency in these areas to give you an edge and enhance your performance, so you can achieve your desired goals in a safe manner.

The Program

Functional Training will operate in 6-week sessions with a 2-week break in between sessions.
