How to Stay Functional and Fit!!

Oct 21, 2015 Eric Toussaint 6 Comments

I have been personal training for nearly twenty years, and it has be a pleasure to watch the field evolve. The training methodologies that are currently available for trainers and exercise enthusiasts are amazing.

The way I trained “then” and “now” are radically different. I won’t bore you with all the comparisons, but will outline what I think currently is the best approach.

There are three levels that need to be addressed:

  1. Structure – You need to make sure that you actual structure is in good order. I currently like the Chiropractic Biophysics approach to address this issue. Check out http://www.gotyourbacktotalhealth.com
  1. Function – Once you get your structure where it should be, you need to make sure that you are functional and have no asymmetries. I recommend an FMS Screen (http://www.functionalmovement.com) – we provide that www.jettllc.biz
  1. Training – Find a trainer that espouses the the first two “levels of need” and that focuses on training in a way that provides real strength gains that have real world applications. There should be a good blend of FMS corrective movements, functional movements, and work on flexibility and balance.

Now once you find all this, yes it’s a tall order but doable, it comes down to one thing – compliance. The ball is now in your court…

Be happy be healthy
