What is the best Functional Exercise

There is no such thing as a best functional exercise. There are only exercises that are functional by the nature of that exercises ability to help an individual with a specific goal or issue.

How do you pick what exercises is right for a specific client.

I created a system of analysis by using a clients specific movement patterns to assess where the problems in their movement are. Only from that point can I prescribe an exercise that is actually functional for that client. In other words. I analyze the client then prescribe exercise to correct or improve an issue.

Is your system hard to learn

Yes, It is a science and an art and that is why it is hard to learn. Many trainers have come into my facility thinking that they can shadow a session or two or ten and learn how things work. Very quickly they learn that clients are all different and that takes a lot of attention to detail.

How long have you been training clients to have your level of experience.

I have been training clients for over 30 years and have been a professional personal trainer (no other income source) for 21 years.

How long have you been doing Functional Fitness.

I have been training people in Functional Fitness (my system) since long before it was a catch phrase. 20 years.
