What is FUNctional Training?


             'Functional Fitness' Means Training For Your Real Life

             WHAT good is having the sexiest biceps in town if you can't scramble up    

             subway steps with ease, run for a bus without knee pain or lift a toddler

             without wrenching your back? 

             That's the premise behind a new school of thought called functional fitness, 

             an approach that is transforming the techniques of many trainers.

             Functional fitness means that the goal of working out is preparing your body

             so it can perform daily activities -- walking, bending, lifting, climbing stairs --

             without pain, injury or discomfort.

        Depending on your height, 20-40

         extra pounds will take your from

         being at an ideal weight to being

         clinically obese.

                         What is your BMI?

       According to the Center for

        Disease Control and Prevention

        (CDC),  "Body Mass Index (BMI)

        is a number calculated from a

        person's weight and height.  BMI

        provides a reliable indicator of

        body fatness for most people and

        is used to screen for weight

        categories that may lead to health

        problems, such as heart disease,

        stroke, diabetes and certain forms

        of cancer."
