Our
Story

Why do you train? I believe this is an important question that individuals should ask themselves before engaging in any form of fitness journey.

In today’s world we are targeted with quick fix solutions to our health issues, “8 weeks to abs” is an example of advertisements I have seen pop up all over my Facebook, along with this a substantial amount of trainers are led to believe that the only way to achieve a client’s weight loss goal is through HIT training.

The result is clients participating in programs that their body is not ready to partake in, with most individuals suffering from postural and mobility issues due to an increased sedentary lifestyle (office workers sitting all day) these programs may get some early results but will eventually most likely lead to injury and major setbacks.

I know this, as in the past I’ve been one of these trainers. I’ve also participated in these types of programs and suffered numerous injuries along the way to the point where I decided something had to change.

What
drives us

The reason I train is to improve my movement and health, not to participate in programs that are detrimental to my wellbeing. Learning how to do this has led to the establishment of Functional For Life.
