Our exercise philosophy is based around the simple concept of "Functional Movement".
So what does that mean?
Well plain and simply it's just Primal Physical Activity!!!
And basically, that's just all-body movements in realistic, lifelike patterns.
Here's an example. Rugby players are not trained to run just forwards and backwards like a sprinter, beacuse if they get tackled from the side their body will have no "experience" of how to cope with that event. So they tend to train explosively, powerfully, side-to-side, randomly. Conversely there is not much point in training Usain Bolt to hop backwards...
Is doing 5 or 10km runs really what you want to do, or is it what you think you need to do? How useful is it to catching a bus, running up the stairs to a meeting, chasing your child who ran into the road, or bolting after the escaped dog? Not very! It's great for charity events, but not much use in real life.
Using a rowing machine maybe great if you want to be a rower, but can you carry heavy shopping bags through a shopping centre, or hold a box above your head?
Does what you've done previously really replicate what you do day-to-day in your normal life...?
So the training needs to be applicable, but it also needs to be whole body, which is extremely time efficient, and fun!
Another example for you. Take 1 minute and do bicep curls, take another 1 minute and do pressups. Which one is likely to have burned more calories, got your entire body working, raised the heart rate? Bicep curls may make your guns look bigger but that's not much good for anything else unless everything else is developed at the same time!
there are also lots and lots of ways to make press-ups entertaining--not so much with bicep curls...
We've been fortunate to have been trained by one of the best in this area and his instruction closely aligned with what we found to work for two middle aged, working parents! We've also done our research and closely follow the thought leaders in this area, so we're well abreast of not only the latest thinking, but the best and most logical thinking!
Constant movement, constant challenge, constant variation .
By employing perpetual motion during the session we maximise efficiency, therefore getting the most value for you from your money! You won't get bored, you'll be kept guessing and most of all you'll enjoy coming.
