Hiking. Skiing. Golf. Walking. Gardening. Dance.

Move right so you can do what you love, safe and strong for many years.

Functional Fitness means focusing your training with movements that optimize your body’s motion, flexibility and control through all joints and tissue for all life activities. This is especially important in the Hips, Ankles/Feet and Thoracic Spine. When these very important areas lack the requisite mobility & range of motion and the stability & control to perform your favorite activity, they can cause dysfunction elsewhere in the body. Increasing YOUR performance whether it is for a specific sport, for overall health and fitness or rehabbing from an injury will be enhanced significantly when these resources are restored into your global movements. The goal is to train your movement biomechanics so you can perform better in Your life’s passion

Fitness Philosophy

What the heck is Applied Functional Science™?

Applied Functional Science™ is Functional Fitness at it’s best.

It is movement analysis and training rooted in the physical, biological and behavioral sciences that views movement as a chain reaction or continuum to train for functional purposes.  Have you ever had a sore spot or one that lacks mobility or strength? Have you tried specific stretches or exercises to help but with no lasting results?  Looking at the your movement through the AFS™ lense can identify which parts of your body may be contributing to the movement deficit. By tweaking your movement or position you might just get the results you want. The Mobility and Stability exercises should then be targeted to help YOU keep the results.

So what's class like?

3D Movement.

Each session is designed to be a well-balanced program that moves your entire body in 3 Dimensions moving every bone, joint and muscle in your body as an integrated whole.

Sometimes weights, balance and resistance equipment, Pilates Equipment and sometimes just an open room where you will leverage your own body weight are used in class. Sometimes you will jump or hop or jop! You will learn some exercises that you’ll actually enjoy doing!

The classes are kept small to give you personalized coaching, encouraging your success and transformation through movement tweaks that help you specifically. Ensuring your movement is bio-mechanically integrated so you can move to your highest potential.

The Gray Institute’s Applied FunctionalScience™ and 3D Maps™ is an overarching bio-mechanical system of full body movement supported by exercise science and the newest findings in fitness that effectively exercises muscles together as part of a chain reaction, in 3 dimensions: you walk away from class stronger, more mobile, stable and more able. And you never really walk away from class, because this kind of integrated training is important for your body throughout your life. Make a class a regular part of your week throughout the year!
