Five Things I Love About Functional Training
The Work Ethic
It isn’t easy. It promotes hard work that you will rarely find outside of competitive athletics. Compared to conventional fitness programs, the work ethic, discipline, and commitment of the members is unparalleled.
Improved Training Methods
The competitive, free-market nature of CrossFit has lead to a variety of developments in the way we train athletes now. Competition has elevated the expected standards of fitness and coaching. Good coaches are constantly seeking out eduction from a variety of experts and improving upon their own methods.
We promote a simple but sensible approach to nutrition. I am a fan of the Paleo/Primal framework as it is applied to nutrition as it makes sense from a both a physiological and behavioral standpoint. Unlike some of the other communities in the fitness industry, the CrossFit approach to nutrition is healthy and sustainable.
Renewed Interest In Weightlifting and Powerlifting
Functional Training Programs have indirectly promoted growth in sports like Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, and strongman around the world.
There is a strong, socially-based impetus that motivates our members to give their best effort at every training session and continually support each other.
WHAT DOES VO2 OFFER?
VO2 is a unification of health and fitness and a community of people who enjoy each other’s company and training together. It’s a social phenomena.We are the opposite of headphones on, lone wolf, keep to yourself on a treadmill at low intensity.
