The FIITBOX Functional Fitness classes are designed to put your body through natural movement patterns. The program uses functional exercises to strengthen and condition the body, therefore improving muscle tone, power and endurance.
In The FIITBOX TRAINING Program, we do not use machines. Our philosophy is all about moving the body and targeting every muscle. We incorporate balance, stability, strength, and skill components thus reducing the risk of injury during daily activities. Additionally, each class will include a cardiovascular training component to help improve body composition and metabolism. Weekly programming will utilize a combination of The FIITBOX’S favourite exercises:
• CONDITIONING (concept 2 rower, air assault bike, running, etc.)
• BARBELL (squat, deadlift, clean, presses, etc.)
• DUMBBELLS (lunges, presses, rows)
• GYMNASTICS (handstand holds, push-ups, pullups, and other bodyweight exercises)
