Functional Training at Gold’s Gym.
You may not realize it, but even the simple tasks you perform every day are a work out for your muscles and joints.
Pushing a vacuum, lifting grocery bags, climbing stairs, toting toddlers (and their assortment of strollers, toys and gear) – may all be part of your daily routine — giving your heart, muscles and joints a workout. But think about it. If you’ve neglected exercise for awhile and your body is not in proper shape, you could easily strain a muscle, tear a ligament or injure a joint.
Functional training at Gold’s Gym in Douglasville (Chapel Hill) is a workout that prepares your body and primes your muscles for those everyday tasks. We’ll help you be at your strongest and functioning best every day.
What exactly is functional training?
Your own body weight is the most essential equipment for a functional training workout. Combining resistance and free weights, battle ropes and kettle bells, functional training strengthens your core with short repetitions of intense and varied exercises. Not just for boosting strength and stability, functional training also improves range of motion and increases your heart rate.
Even though you won’t see aerobic equipment in our gym’s functional training studio, you’ll still get a great heart-pumping workout. Each activity you move through targets specific muscles and joints, so you’ll work your shoulders, spine, abs, legs and calves. When you’ve completed one set of repetitions, you’ll start them over. Your muscles learn to work together as you move through the workout, increasing your heart rate, revving your metabolism and burning calories.
You’ll also find you have improved stamina and endurance.
Even though these are high intensity workouts, you can exercise at your own pace. Start slowly if needed, and work your way up to the best physical shape you’ve ever experienced. Functional training is available with a personal trainer, who will get you started on the best workout routine for your fitness level — and coach you along the way.
To keep your fitness routine exciting, alternate your functional training routine with one of the many other services at our health club in Douglasville. Try out cardio training or energetic group exercise classes.
