Functional Performance Training

Functional Performance Training is the key to restoring function and maintaining an active lifestyle. Through activity and sport-specific training,functional training helps to train balance, agility, and power for your whole body. Functional training involves the same movements you use in your daily life.

Functional training emphasizes movement patterns which are important for daily tasks and sport or recreational activities. In contrast to traditional strength training which isolates individual muscles, We will guide you in functionally integrated patterns that you will use in pushing, pulling, lifting, or carrying activities. We can will help you gain a basic movement literacy in the fundamental A,B,Cs of agility, balance, and coordination.
