Functional Fitness Classes.... What is that???
Functional fitness is nothing new, really, it's just basic calisthenic style exercises that help to improve strength, range of motion, balance and coordination, stimulate brain memory, create happy hormones for improve mood, reduce stress and anxiety, and aid in fall prevention, reduce injuries, and identify signs of dehydration... and this is just a few of what my LIFT 2 THRIVE Super Seniors learn about in my on going classes.

When purchasing bodyweight training equipment, purchase a product that allows you to move in all three planes of motion, not just two. Rotational movement is key to proper bodyweight training exercises and real life movement and this can be accomplished with the CrossCore180® Rotational Bodyweight Trainer™ www.crosscore-usa.com

The CrossCore® Lat Row Progression, or “Reverse 180”, begins as a single arm row, then progresses into a single arm row with hip rotation and then finally finishes as the “Reverse 180”. Both the CrossCore® Lat Row Progression and Chest Press Progression can be done with varying degrees of hip rotation by keeping the feet pointed straight ahead as you rotate the hips or pivot the feet to keep the spine more properly aligned. But no matter your foot placement preference, you gotta PULL THE PIN!

I get asked this question quite a bit. The research is in and if you are already a fit adult at any age, I may add, you may be ready for it. I recommend you working with a certified personal trainer who can safely access when you are ready for this type of training. A researcher by the name of Tabata found that 8 rounds of 20 seconds of bike riding followed by only 10 seconds of rest increases fitness levels, decreases body fat and will even help you lose weight. This study was done with a cardio type of training and not heavy weight lifting like they do in Crossfit.
