Functional Training Programs
At the end of each four-week period, we take a close look at your progress.
The process continues like this for the duration of the 12 weeks. At the end of the 12 weeks, we take a look at your progress and other factors and determine how to move forward.
Functional training is the combination of two or more training styles. The reason for functional training can be that you have dual goals, such as muscle toning and conditioning, or if you prefer variety in your exercise.
Regardless of the reason, as your personal fitness trainers, we can create a functional training program that combines the different training styles you like. Interested in cardiovascular conditioning and building muscle? We can create a challenging program for you. We can create a program that gives you the best of each, among others, and our personal experience as well as experience training others in functional training, body sculpting, powerlifting, running, bodybuilding, and other training methodologies.
No matter what you want to combine, we can create a functional-training program that fits, and we will be there to help you every step of the way. On top of that, we are always available for support via email, and available for calls as needed.
What to expect from the online cross-training program
After you pay for the program, we send you an email confirming payment. This email includes new client intake paperwork that everyone must sign, such as the new client questionnaire and health questionnaire. You fill these out, return them to us, and we review them. If we have any questions, we either ask via email or schedule a time to talk on the phone. If there are no questions, we move on to the next step.
Based on the information provided in your intake forms and through our communications with you, we create a 12-week online functional-training program customized to you, that:
- Is built around your schedule
- Focuses on the type of exercises you like and will help you reach your goals
- Follows the principles of exercise programming such as specificity, periodization, progression, variety, etc.
- Is 12 weeks in length
The program will be built according to your skill level, among other factors. Why is this important? This helps determine:
- Frequency of training (number of sessions per week)
- Length of sessions (time spent during a single session)
- Time between sessions (number of rest days between workouts)
- Total rest days per week
- Type of exercises included
- Volume (exercises x sets x reps)
- Rest intervals (how long you rest between sets/exercise)
- Load used (weight used on specific exercises)
- Type of progressions (which variable changes over time)
- Rate of progression (the pace at which intensity increases)
