A Balancing Act

What’s better: bigger or smaller?  How about stronger or weaker?  Is it possible to be small and strong or big and weak?  Really if you think about it, a 400-lb person might be stronger than any of us because every time he / she stands up it’s a 400-lb squat.  Think about that for a second…

Strength comes in all shapes and sizes and your body will adapt to the challenges you throw at it.  If you want to bench press a car, that’s cool even though there’s a very small chance you’ll ever need that skill.  But maybe you’d rather carry your kids / moving boxes / groceries without getting hurt.  Or climb the stairs without getting winded.  Or even get up from the couch without throwing your back out…  What we do is all about functional fitness: training to be better at everyday life activities.  And based on the progress of our CFers, it’s safe to say everyone is doing an excellent job.  But if you’re ever in a situation where you need to bench press a car you’ll probably have to rely on adrenaline to help you out.
