Strength Training at Eloquence

“Adding strength to function!”

What are Functional Movements:

Movement patterns you perform in your everyday life – upper and lower body pushing & pulling, hinging at the hip, rotation & anti-rotation, and your gait.

Why are functional movements essential in daily life?

Everyday your body is put in position to respond with strength or weakness. The ability to respond with strength is simple IF your body is prepared to do so. It will default to responding with weaknesses if it is not prepared. This process starts at a young age where you can develop positive habits and functional strength.

Summer 2022 Programs:

Mastery of Functional Movement Camp

Ages: 8-12
Cost: $175
June 27-30
Time: 9:00am – 12:00pm

Four-mornings where campers focus on mastering the most important functional movements. The goal of the camp is to identify weaknesses and be able to correct the movement patterns, then master each pattern. Campers will go through a variety of activities that will challenge their fitness levels and prepare them to move with proper form through life. We will work on squatting, jumping, landing, rotating, anti-rotating, agility, change or direction and so much more during this camp.
*There will be no weights added to any movements during this week’s camp.
