Functional bias

We are biased towards functional movements in our program. Running, jumping, throwing, lifting, carrying, and climbing comprise the bulk of our training. It makes sense to us that if our objective is general physical preparedness for life, then we would want to develop an enormous work capacity in the movements found in our daily life. The luxury of the gym setting is that we can pick movements, select equipment, determine loads, and control volume. We can stretch into our full range of motion, and we can vary the stimulus as we choose. We can work on our weaknesses and get better at the things we’re not good at as a matter of choice rather than happenstance. We’re certain this is why our students find that the hour of sweat and toil in the gym makes their work and play outside of the gym feel easier.
