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. 

Follow the fish, workout in the water

It is a little old-school, but water aerobics are set to make a comeback with trainers now featuring heavily on social media.  Water aerobics not only can help you get the most out of your aerobic workout, but as a lower impact option it can also do a lot more, as well.

Tech for healthy ageing

A new type of workforce empowered by modern technology and undergoing online training and virtual assistants, telemedicine doctors, homes equipped with useful sensors, and smart robots as companions is the likely future we will experience. It is now starting to see the light of the day.

Benefits of HiiT

Formerly referred to Interval Training now HiiT (High Intensity Interval Training) has taken the world by storm. HiiT is great for building strength in your muscles. It is simple, use them or lose them! It is also very good for heart health. The heart is, after all, a muscle too.

There is a protein that can slow down ageing!

“How can I slow down the ageing process?” – A lifelong question that a lot of us have asked and continue to ask! Scientists have identified a protein in our bodies called Nuclear factor erythroid 2 [NF-E2]-related factor 2, commonly known as Nrf2.

Eat Your Age

Recent studies in nutrition science have shown that diet plays a key role in ageing gracefully. We’ve assembled a stack of research on the best food choices you make to improve your ageing.

The importance of resistance training at any age

Some get into resistance training through engaging in particular sports, however it doesn’t need to be any more complicated than adding some weights to your current fitness routines. Honestly, having a can of beans to hand is all you need. Resistance training is important as we age to ensure we maintain our strength to do everyday activities.

Fast Fat Burning Workouts

Here’s an idea for an outdoor workout that literally takes 10-20 minutes and will have you drenched in sweat and pumped up by the end.

How to meditate
