Functional Training

Building strength, stability, power, mobility, endurance and flexibility


Functional training helps provide you with the strength, stability, power, mobility, endurance and flexibility that you need to thrive as you move through your life and sports. You use basic functional movement patterns like pushing, pulling, hinging, squatting, rotating, carrying and  gait patterns (walking and running) every day. Functional training utilizes exercises that improve your movement proficiency in these primary patterns to give you an edge and enhance your performance so you can achieve your goals safely and with good health.

Why is Functional Training Important:
Life is unpredictable and unstable. So why would you develop your training using stable and predictable routines and equipment? No matter your fitness goal, treat variety and practical application as critical components of your training. You don’t live in a vacuum, so why would you train in one?

Why you should use TRX for Functional Training:
TRX Training challenges the entire body in every plane of motion with versatile, scalable tools that anyone, anywhere can use to perform exercises that improve movement on the field or in life.
