Let’s get functional, functional!
It’s ok, you can pretend you weren’t just singing along and channeling your inner Olivia Newton John (but nobody will believe you)!
Let’s discuss functional fitness for a moment… I’m going to take a shot in the dark and guess that part of the reason you work out is so you feel better and are better able to perform your normal daily activities. Carrying heavy stuff over a long distance quickly (or at least without dropping it), keeping up with you kids, running with your dog, playing a different sport without getting injured. Even if you do face an unfortunate injury, you’ll recover faster due to your strength and fitness level.
Well you’re in the right place because that is EXACTLY what CF is all about! Our goal is to increase your strength, balance, endurance, adaptability, speed, and more while keeping you injury-free and just sore enough :).
Maybe you’re more into the strength side, and maybe you’re more into the endurance side (thank you, warmer weather!), and either is ok. In fact, they complement each other perfectly. You will become a better, more well-rounded athlete by working on the stuff that you’re NOT good at (hmm, imagine that). And even though you may despise it at the time, you’ll be thankful when you’re able to avoid that collision on the field, or you get a PR on a lift, or to have the confidence that you can and will finish a big race without specifically training for it. Because you’re a CFer, you have the mental and physical training and toughness, and you KNOW you will do it!
