WHY do we believe so passionately in developing strong, functional bodies??
Let's say that a strong, functional body is a brand new set of tires:
Pumped up and have great tread.
Now let's say that a weak, poorly functioning body is an old set of tires:
Flat, bald and uneven.
Which set of tires is going to be most efficient when transferring power from the car to traction on the road? Clearly the brand new ones. The old tires will skid, do a poor job of transferring power and are a good chance of one or more of them blowing out at any second.
If you are exercising on an old set of tires (a weak and poorly functioning body) then you had better expect that you will struggle to transfer power, you'll be unstable and that you are at a much higher risk of a blow out!
Your exercise goals might not necessarily revolve around quality of movement and stability but I can guarantee that a strong, functional body they will help you get results quicker and more safely.
Want to lose weight?
Get strong and functional first, everything will work better and you can exercise for longer and more often
Want to tone up?
Get strong and functional first and you will speed your metabolism and burn fat more efficiently
Want to put on muscle?
Get strong and functional first and you will build muscle quicker due to more efficient movement
Want to stop getting injured?
Get strong and functional first and injury will be a thing of the past due to vastly improved stability
Want to perform better in your sport?
Get strong and functional first and the improved combination of mobility and stability will transfer to your sports specific skills
WHAT is a strong, functional body?
Stability + Mobility + Ability to move efficiently = "A Strong, Functional Body"
HOW do we develop strong, functional bodies?
We work on the following competencies:
-Stability - Activation drills and balance
-Mobility - Release drills and stretching
-Motor Patterns - Movement drills and awareness
-Strength - Lifting using resistance
-Fitness - High intensity work with short rest periods
