Functional Training imitates the natural everyday physical function of our daily activities. For example, we push (close doors), we pull (open doors), we bend (reach down to pick up items), we jog (when in a hurry). A functional training exercise program will consist of controlled weight bearing and or resistance movement that enhances the natural function of the body while also increasing stamina and flexibility.

Functional Training provides the tools for overall physical health. It combines strength exercises, core exercises, cardio-vascular exercises, and stretching exercises within the course of each set of movements. Everything needed to keep the body physically functional and ready to perform. It’s the perfect program for managing age.

The beauty of Functional Training is that it can be done individually, in a group setting (church, corporation, community center), the confines of your home, at the office with co-workers, or at the park with friends. The entire workout should take no more than 40-45 minutes.

The equipment best suited for Functional Training consist of dumbbells (5,10, or a 12 lb set), medicine balls (5 to 8lb), and a exercise matt. This type of equipment can be purchased by the participants or the organization overseeing the program.
As type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and obesity continue to rise among our national adults and children population, the need to find a cost effective way to help people become healthier and lower the cost of health care insurance is more important than ever. This is and has proven to be a major priority for the current and past White House administration.

The best way of getting America back in shape can be accomplished through Functional Training and a Basic nutrition program.

Traditional exercise programs have relied heavily upon health clubs and gyms to service the needs of communities. They have had a tremendous impact on the state of health in our country. However, a large segment of the population is still being left out because of the cost of gym membership fees. Functional Training Programs offer ways to reach communities everywhere for a fraction of the cost.
Proper nutritional guidance will be given to education participants on how to make better food choices. By having a basic knowledge of calories and how they work in the body can have a positive impact on how people look at food. Also, being conscious of food labels (protein, carbohydrate, fat, sodium, sugar) will promote a better educated nutritional community and consumer. The Basic Nutritional Program will give participants a clear understanding of protein, carbohydrates, and fats and how they function in the body.

The program will also teach participants how to count calories and which ones are best suited to help reach their particular fitness goals. It will also educate them about age management vitamin supplementation.
The Minister of Fitness focuses on creating certified personal trainers for churches and various community ministries. The Minister of Fitness training curriculum falls under the Functional Training Certification.

  • Heart disease
