Would you like to feel ok during your daily activities, or would you like to feel great?  Think of movements you do throughout the day, also known as functional movements.  This might be new to you since we don’t typically think about these movements until we can’t perform them. 

Which functional movements would you like to improve upon?  Picking up your child or grandchild, carrying a heavy box, walking from the far-parked car to an exciting venue, lifting your arms overhead to try on a blouse at your favorite store?

So, what does exercise have to do with all of this?  Functional exercise trains and develops the muscles in a way that makes everyday activities easier, smoother, safer, and more efficient.  These exercises enhance your ability to function independently and improve your quality of life!

There is a specific protocol that must be followed for the safe progression of functional exercises.  Safety is key so make sure to seek professional help prior to beginning a functional training program!
