What is Functional Fitness? Functional Fitness is a series of movements that will benefit your body. It will correct compensations, wake up muscles that have been on a coffee break (possibly for years), get your stabilizing muscles firing and train them to balance in all situations. So often stabilization muscles, or balance in general, are overlooked. However, balance and stability and two of the most important elements of our day to day movement. If you train those stabilizing muscles to balance on things such as a Bosu ball (half ball) doing various activities to through you off balance, your body will be trained to keep you standing/upright, rather than lose your balance. You will be able to quickly react when you hit a patch of ice under the snow, catch the corner of a rug, hit a divet in the grass, step on a rock/pebble, or any other series of common events that happen regularly, that make you lose your footing. Avoiding the fall is avoiding the injury. When you've had an injury, such as rolling an ankle, you confuse the proprioceptors. They don't return to their uninterrupted state, without help. This is where functional fitness comes in. Think of it as physio meets fitness. Correct compensations and be balanced. The virtual sessions are offered through Skype and are private. You will simply need a space in your home where you can move freely. A yoga/exercise mat, or a mat of some sort is a good idea to add cushion for floor exercises and stretches. If you do not already have the appropriate equipment, then I can advise you what to buy. The one main component of this service that is not available through virtual sessions, is the kinaesthetic connecting of the muscles to the brain. During exercise, I palpate (a technique using two fingers to lightly tap on the muscle that has disconnected from the brain) the muscles that have stopped working, to reconnect them to the brain. Over time, palpation will wake up the muscle, just like tapping a sleeping person on the shoulder. I will rewire the circuitry of the brain and reconnect it to the "sleeping" muscle(s) through new synapses. This cannot be done through a screen. This doesn't mean that you will not receive benefit from the verbal correction and balance training; however, the correction verbally will take longer than if I were able to physically palpate the area. Payments for virtual sessions are made monthly (rather than by session), for the upcoming month/4 week period.
All sessions cancelled prior to 24 hours before the scheduled appointment time will be completely reimbursed. Any cancellations that are received the day of the appointment will be charged in full.
