Smarter Fitness Training
If you’re like most folks, you’ve tried a lot of different avenues when it comes to fitness.
You’ve likely joined a couple gyms in the past, maybe tried yoga classes, or even trained for a ½ marathon. We all want to be fit, to look and feel great, so we try out different methods, hoping that we find one that is fun, realistic, and most importantly, it delivers results.
A lot of time and money goes into this experiment, and oftentimes, we’re left feeling disappointed. We begin pondering questions like “Am I just not working hard enough?” or “Am I not working out long enough?” Frustrations rise, motivation dwindles, and all of the sudden, you feel like you’re back to square one.
Our Functional Fitness classes are the answer to the problem!
We’re here to change the way you see fitness & to get you the results you’re looking for!
Community Driven Results
Here’s a question for you…
Do you perform better at a task when you are (a) held accountable or (b) not held accountable?
It’s easy, right?! We are much more likely to perform well on a task where people are counting on us, where people care whether or not we succeed; that’s why the community at our gym matters as much as anything else. When you’ve got others around you, cheering you on to complete your workout, you’re going to work your butt off! And when you’ve got your friends and coaches waiting for you to show up, you’re going to find a way to make it to class!
Accountability is King, and there’s no better accountability than a team of guys and gals who want you to reach your goals.
How We Do It…
We Make It Fun
When you show up to the gym and do the same thing, day in and day out, you get bored! Variety is the spice of life, right? We keep our program varied so that every time you come to class, you’re doing something very different from your last session.
We Make It Realistic
We know that you don’t have the time to commit several hours of your week to exercise. With our emphasis on intensity, you’ll reach your goals by showing up (and working hard!) three or four times per week– that’s it!
We Deliver Results
Our program uses movements that are similar to those you use every day, making them not only safe, but highly effective. You’ll do things like deadlifts, running, and push-ups. You’ll learn Olympic Weightlifting to become more powerful. You’ll jump, squat, run, bike, row, push and pull! You’ll flip some tires, do some jump rope and pull a sled! When you combine all of these functional movements with high levels of intensity (which you’ll learn how to do), you get results!
Who Is This For?
Functional Fitness classes are for those that want to get fit and have fun in a group setting.
There are no prerequisites for joining Functional Fitness classes. You don’t need to be a certain age, a certain weight, or at a certain fitness level to join– everyone is welcome to be a part of this amazing group.
All you need to bring with you is a positive attitude, a eagerness to learn, and a willingness to work hard. We’ll take care of the rest!
Functional Fitness is a workout program which consists of constantly varied movements and intensities. The 60 minute class starts with a briefing going over what you’ll be doing for that day, followed by a warm-up. Each day can vary so on some days you’ll be working on your Olympic Lifting while on others you’ll be doing a high intensity type workout… maybe some skills work too… and on other days a mixture of all of the above!
I've been training with Mark for nearly four years now - I'm the strongest and fittest I've ever been and now more than ever I'm motivated to keep challenging myself. Mark puts a great focus on technique, he teaches you what will cause injury and he never pushes you beyond your real limits - removing the fear of injury. I like that he does the hard yards with you - he doesn't suggest a challenge and leave you to it. He's alongside you the 10kms, or waste deep in mud or giving you a leg up. I literally don't know what I would do without him.
I've been with Mark over 4 years. During that time he has helped me recover from several injuries. - one of which had been ongoing for over 3 years. He then worked on mobility and strength exercises which turned this often injured muscle group into a strength of mine. Mark balances a unique understanding of the body with a plethora of exercises to meet your fitness goals, reduce injury risks and build strength, stamina and muscle.
Mark as a trainer is not only helpful and supportive but also an educator. You learn about how to train yourself and more importantly why you are doing the exercise. 2 months in and I actually look forward to training. Feeling fitter, more on point and just all round better for it.
