Fitat60 Functional Fitness

 

Functional Fitness is a classification of training that prepares the body for real-life movements and activities. It trains your muscles to work together and prepares them for daily tasks by simulating common movements you might do at home, at work, or in sports.

In this session it is important that you take the time to understand your own physical limits.  Work with your body and not against it.  And as always, speak to your healthcare professional before making any significant changes to your fitness or nutrition routines. 

You do not need to complete the whole routine today – important to work on getting the moves right, practice and become comfortable with them.  The intent of this program is to practice and progress yourself to a Functional Fitness movement called the GetUp (also known as the Turkish and our very own Fred is an award-winning champion of this move). 

We want to get you to a point where you are confident and comfortable to complete the GetUp and integrate this into your fitness regime a couple of times a week.

Posture is key and you’ll hear Fred talking about keeping a “neutral spine”.  Need help on this?

The GetUp

Once you have built confidence in the moves above, you should be able to bring them together into the GetUp.  Use the GetUp on its own (post a good warm-up of course) or as a finisher to any other exercise.

We have put together this video for you to use when not needing to complete all the other Functional Fitness routines above.

Good luck and you’ll be laughing with health. 

Sleep

We all know that sleep is vital to our heath and wellbeing, but 2 in 5 Australians aren’t getting enough.  Not so long ago, most people believed sleep was a passive activity during which the body and brain were dormant. However, studies have proven that sleep is a period during which the brain is engaged in a number of activities which are closely linked to “quality of life”.

Australia’s sleep epidemic

As the statistics clearly show, most of us are walking around half awake every day, which means in all probability we are not living a higher quality of life we could be and other areas of our lives can suffer. Both psychical and psychological problems can arise by not achieving enough quality sleep.

7x Signs of an unhealthy gut

Recent studies show the importance of the gut microbiome in our lives. But as our stress levels increase and we eat more processed and sugary foods, the gut suffers in many ways. On top of that, we damage the natural environment in the gut by taking antibiotics.

Fatigue: A symptom to be weary of

Excessive fatigue is a common health complaint especially among women. Aside from their families and the general pace of modern life, there are still other activities that a woman needs to attend to which may make them feel really tired. But today, doctors say, women are exhausted.

Peptides and their benefits

It may seem odd, but some of us use peptides without even realizing it. Insulin is probably the best example we can give. Insulin is the most commonly know peptide that is used to regulate the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and protein by promoting the absorption of glucose from the blood into liver, fat and skeletal muscle cells.

Lose weight and gain a decade

We hear it all the time…lose weight for your health. Few us however, realize the extent to which this is critical to their physical well-being and ultimately their life expectancy.

What is dry fasting?

“Dry fasting” is a diet fad being promoted online by lifestyle influencers. The idea behind dry fasting is to forgo drinking any water. Instead, you get water only from food sources, such as fruits and vegetables. But it is a dieting approach that is dangerously misguided.
