Become a Functional Training Member
Our specialized Functional Training programs are designed to enhance the quality of powerful movements by focusing on individual's personal deficits through full-body exercises. Correcting deficits such as mobility restrictions, mechanical instability, asymmetrical strength (one side is stronger than the other), coordination and balance allows your body to adapt to physical stress instead of breaking down.
Every member receives a Functional Movement Screen (FMS), a test designed to measure core strength and mobility and to assess deficiencies. FMS results serve as the basis for your individualized training program. All FT members are scheduled in a class program that fits their criteria and availability. Programs are designed by our elite team of healthcare professionals and evidence-based research. All programs are conducted in a small group environment under the direction of a strength and conditioning professional.
Our goal is to make each member move better, become stronger and reduce the risk of injury.
Functional Movement Screen (FMS)
Measures seven fundamental functional movement patterns to identify your movement limitations and muscle asymmetries. Results can also serve as the basis for an individualized functional training program to correct and improve your specific deficiencies and prevent injuries.
