What is FIT?


Functional exercises are designed to train and develop your musculoskeletal system to make it easier and safer to perform everyday activities such as getting up from a chair or the floor, climbing stairs, carrying groceries, running to catch the bus, or playing a game of basketball with your kids.  It is about integrating and teaching all of the muscles in the body to work together synergistically. 

A functional exercise challenges balance and coordination while simultaneously improving strength and range of motion.  Developing better functional fitness will help prevent injury and improve your quality of life.


Integrative exercises focus on flexibility, cardiovascular fitness, core stability, balance, power, and strength. 

Incorporating these components in every program enables you to meet your fitness and lifestyle goals.  Over time you will see improvement in your quality of life, body composition, endurance, and sports performance.
