Spending hours in the gym with no results?
At Body Focus Fitness & Performance you'll be introduced to the Functional Fitness and Interval Training or FFIT System (TM), a workout system developed after months of real world testing on people from all walks of life. The FFIT System is based on addressing what I call the Physical Essentials(PE): strength, endurance, power, balance and flexibility. This is accomplished by employing a variety of workout methods and strategies all centered around learning and performing the Foundation Movements and their variations. These movements train and develop the basics of human physical functional and comprise the platform on which this system is designed. The beauty of the FFIT System is that it is infinitely scalable; it is as easily applied to a college athlete seeking maximum performance as it is to a women in her 50's looking to increase bone density.
Personal Training should be just that; personal. At Body Focus Fitness & Performance you won't just be doing a "cookie cutter" workout; your workout will be designed specifically for you, based on your goals, current condition and past experience.
Our Personal Training programs start with a thorough evaluation. After a completing a health history and being cleared to engage in exercise, assessments of strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness are conducted to establish a starting point for your program. We will also identify any physical deficiencies that may exist and will address them if they fall within the scope of our program. We will discuss your goals, both long and short term, and outline the best plan for achieving them.
Group Exercise is a cost effective alternative to personal training. You still receive direction and motivation from a trianer, but in a group setting There are three types of exercise classes regularly offered: the FxT Boot Camp, PowerFit Cross Training and ExtremeFit. Each of these classes are taught by a certified and knowledgable instructor who uses their experience to create a unique and effective workout. Information on each class can be found here.
Kettlebells and Olympic Weightlifting are two staples of our programs that maybe unfamiliar to the average fitness buff. We believe they offer such unique benefits that their inclusion in any fitness program is vital, and we are experts at teaching both. According to an 8 week Olympic weightlifting program study conducted by Dr Michael Stone, participants lowered their resting heart rate by 8%, lean body weight increased by 4%, fat dropped 6%, and systolic blood pressure decreased by 4%. And according to a study by John Porcari, PhD at UW-Lacrosse, a 20 minute Kettlebell workout burns as many as 400 calories while offering benefits equal to running a six minute mile or uphill cross-country skiing. The reason for these fantastic benefits is very simple. The exercises employed in both Olympic weightlifting and Kettlebell lifting are full body movements, requiring virtually every muscle in your body to activate during each repetition. Not only does this increase the intensity of the exercise, but it has the very fortunate effect of making your body work better as a unit, increasing your "functional fitness". These two modes of exercise will make you physically better at whatever you do.
Sports Performance programs should be designed not only for immediate results but should also be designed to lay the foundation for future impovements, while ensuring performance longevity and injury prevention. We will analyze your seasonal cycle to make certain that you are addressing what you need to be at the right time so that you'll be at your peak when the game is on.
Post-Rehab exercise is in many cases the final step in returning to a healthy, active lifestyle after an injury or illness. Maintaining or improving on the gains made through medical, chiropractic or therapuetic treatment is the aim of our Post Rehab programs which we provide for clients who have been referred by their physician, physical or chiropractor. Increases in functional fitness, strength and range of motion are the main focus, ensuring that you get back in the game as soon as possible.
