Improve Core Strength, Balance & Endurance at Corpus Christi Gyms

Take a minute and think about your day. What are the activities of daily living you employ just to get the job done? From the minute you wake up and stretch — until your bleary eyes close in slumber — your muscles and joints work together to propel you through your everyday tasks.

Carrying a heavy toddler with associated gear. Reaching for those items hidden in the back corners of your closet. Hauling heavy tools or lifting hefty boxes. Squatting to clean up spills or carrying 8 grocery bags to avoid more than one trip.

We often don’t think twice about how we accomplish our everyday errands and tasks, but here’s the deal. Muscles and joints can experience strain and fatigue with repetitive and hardwearing movements — sometimes resulting in pain, misuse, and injury.

Functional training at our gyms in Corpus Christi is one way to condition and strengthen your muscles and joints to work together effectively and efficiently. It’s a workout that uses your own body weight as primary equipment, supplemented by additional gear such as TRX, battle ropes, kettle bells, sleds, plyometrics, stability balls, and resistance tubes.

Functional training tones and strengthens core muscles, yes — but it also revs your heart rate for increased calorie burn. Need more? Functional training also:

  • Improves balance and stability
  • Increases range of motion
  • Builds stamina and endurance
  • Targets specific areas (like shoulders, spine, abs, and legs) for optimal performance

In other words, functional training is fitness for everyday living — and it’s a great workout for every age and stage of fitness. You can start slowly and build at your own pace or take it to the max right out of the gate and charge toward next level greatness. Functional training works for gym newbies and pro athletes alike — and is even beneficial for those recovering from injury.

If getting started is your hang-up, we can get you over that stumbling block. Learn more about functional training at the Freedom Fitness location nearest you — and generate more power for everyday living!
