A Pair Of Weights
Body That's Ready To Move
Whether I am training clients in their home or in a private gym facility, we don't need a bunch of fancy equipment to target the necessary areas for functional training. What is Functional Training? For most training purposes, it involves exercises and movements that closely resemble the way their bodies are already need to move. This might mean training someone to fully engage the core so they can sit up and lie down without pain after recovering from a cesarean delivery. Or it might mean training shoulder mobility with functional range of motion exercises to help a power lifter better execute a move. On either end of the fitness spectrum, there are a variety of exercises that require little if any equipment to improve movement and function, whether it's a client's first time training ever, or they're looking for something to compliment their current training regimen.
I also enjoy training clients with little equipment because in reality, very few of us have access to every kind of weight machine available, let alone the time to use it every day. For those who may be at a loss for how to work out without specific machines at their disposal, my training helps show clients how to target every major muscle group no matter where they are. My most successful clients are the ones who take our creative routines and commit to doing even just a couple sets of a few exercises for fifteen minutes a day when they are traveling or experiencing an exceptionally busy work week.
So if you've been sitting on that gym membership, hesitant to cancel it even though you only make it there once or twice a month, consider taking that automatic monthly withdrawal and investing in a one-on-one personal training program that will actually work FOR and WITH you. After all, it's about finding YOUR fit, YOUR healthy and YOUR happy!
