Functional training has become a word that is often thrown around and can mean various things. While enrolling in functional training sessions with Garrett, you can assure he will take into consideration, not only your health & fitness goals, but the quality of movement.
First and foremost, this means you will be put through a thorough movement screening similar to the Functional Movement Screen (FMS). With Garrett’s sports medicine background, he will breakdown any faulty movement patterns with more in-depth testing to determine the cause of your dysfunction. This information will be incorporated into your program and with home recommendations to restore balance within the musculoskeletal system and optimize function.
In addition to an emphasis on moving better, Garrett believes in consistency and accountability. Whether you want to do several sessions per week or have a program created for you with periodic check-ins, you will receive individualized attention. Instead of creating a one size fits all offering, Garrett molds the program around each individual client. This leads to a more successful approach.
The first session begins with an initial consultation which includes:
- Review of health history, previous orthopedic injuries, and discussion of nutrition, sleep, and stress habits
- Discuss goals, and expectations of functional training
- What is your “Why?”
- Complete baseline testing if needed: body fat assessment, weight, girth measurements, exertional testing, and movement screening
Each functional training session includes:
- Corrective exercise if needed
- Dynamic warm-up
- Speed, agility, and power development (*client dependent)
- Resistance training
- Core-specific training
- Cardiorespiratory trainin
- Cool-down and stretch
Regardless of your health and fitness goals, functional training is the most valuable way to get you there. If you are willing to invest the time and effort, more efficient movement and goal attainment are soon to follow. To read testimonials about Garrett, click here.
