VASA’S FUNCTIONAL TURF TRAINING AREA:
INCLUDED IN BASIC, FITNESS AND STUDIO MEMBERSHIPS
Functional training refers to the types of movements that mimic those you would perform in your everyday life. These exercises are not specific to one area of the body the way a “leg day” or an “arm day” would be. Rather, these movements use multiple major muscle groups working together. Some common functional training workouts include walking lunges, stepping onto an elevated surface, push-ups, medicine ball slams, and jump squats.
BENEFITS OF OUR FUNCTIONAL TURF TRAINING AREA
STRENGTHEN YOUR ENTIRE BODY
Functional training encourages your body to work together as a whole rather than focusing on specific parts. This method of exercise comes with a variety of benefits that will help you in your daily life including improved balance and coordination, increased speed and mobility, reduced risk of injury, and overall athletic improvement. Plus, performing movements that work the entire body at once makes for an efficient and well-rounded training routine.
HOW TO USE FUNCTIONAL TURF
A VARIETY OF EQUIPMENT FOR MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY
The functional turf area has an assortment of equipment to help you both work out and recover. Here you’ll find kettlebells, medicine balls, mats, foam rollers, stability balls, Bosu balance trainers, sandbags, TRX Suspension Trainers, battle ropes, and dumbbells. Whether you want to focus on mobility, strength, power, or endurance, these tools will help you get in a great workout in a small space, so you don’t have to traverse across the gym for each new movement. Warm up, set up circuits or exercise pairings, and cool down all in one area.
