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.
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.
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.
