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.
