As an exercise philosophy, functional fitness training works to adopt and develop exercises that allow individuals to perform functional task, which require core stability and flexibility for activities of daily life and recreation. Functional fitness primarily involves weight bearing activities that concentrate on core muscles in the abdomen and low back, while incorporating techniques for decreasing muscle tension to improve joint mobility (flexibility).

Gym Machines vs. Functional Fitness

Gym machines target, isolate, and train specific muscles and do not bear any relationship to the movements people make in their regular activities, daily life, or sports. This is more for gaining muscle mass, and does not relate to the real world environment.

Our personal trainers use functional fitness to integrate all aspects of the body, while reprogramming the muscles to work together rather than isolating. This is found in rehabilitation training, sports conditioning, cross training, and activities of daily living.

We develop a Senior Balance Program in senior living facilities and retirement homes that focus on increasing vestibular awareness in real world situations, confidence building, and improving balance. This program allows for more activities in senior living facilities, and an option for residents to improve their balance weekly with individual care. We start with baseline measurements of each individual using the "Dynamic Gait Index" and provide a 7-week course that helps them strengthen their core and improve balance.

Balancing requires processing of the sensory system (vestibular system, vision, and perception of pressure and proprioception), while the motor system simultaneously controls muscle actions. These systems must detect changes in body awareness with respect to one's environment.

There is an age-related decline in the sensory and motor systems to act concurrently. As a result, the elderly have an increased risk of injuries and falls. In fact, one in three adults aged 65 and over will fall each year, risking a hip fracture, concussion, or other conditions. The amount of assistance and support that an individual needs to conduct activities of daily living (bathing, walking, and grooming) depends on their level of balance. Standing upright and, postural sway are items that we focus on when conducting our class to ensure our students are safe in their living facilities.
