Rockwall Gym Functionally Fit Training Session

by studiofit

In a typical day, how often is a person required to do something that even remotely resembles a bench press?

Functionally Fit is an hour long training session that focuses on cardio movements and strength patterns that are designed to increase muscular strength and mobility for everyday movement. This workout focuses on exercises that mimic movements a person would encounter in his or her daily activities. A functional exercise is a compound movement that uses several joints and closely resembles what a person’s body might go through when they are cleaning the house or doing yard work.

Functional exercise replicates functional movement, the moves used to get average things done in a person’s daily life. Standing from a seated position, placing things overhead, pulling ourselves up, throwing, running and picking things up are all functional movements. A functional fitness regimen, would utilize functional exercises to address and enhance a person’s ability to successfully complete these types of everyday tasks. Functional exercise allows our bodies to perform the way they were engineered.

Functionally Fit is a highly customizable approach to fitness that could help to improve both a person’s exercise performance and daily life. The functionally fit class is good for all levels of fitness. This type of training, properly applied, can make everyday activities easier, reduce the risk of injury and improve quality of life.The instructors will give various options for each movement and exercise. These types of exercises put less wear and tear on muscles and joints, and help improve coordination, balance and stability. Expectations should be to take a person’s body from one level of functionality to a more optimal level until he or she ultimately reach their desired level of fitness and functionality.

Life is functional and you should be too!

A big thank you to Jim Floyd, my trainer for a decade, for convincing me that just because I can, doesn't mean I should bench press 400 lbs. Ego and 57-year-old joints don't always get along! If you're in the Rockwall, Texas area and don't use Studio Fitness Rockwall, you are using a second class gym. - Brad Boeke


I have to thank Jim Floyd for keeping me in such good shape! All day we have been descending into tunnels and uncovered ruins to see the discoveries of Bible times! I feel great. - Virginia Hodge
