The physical fitness part of our ministry focuses on total body strength. Our class model is mobility, flexibility, stability, warm-up, workout, cool down every time. We include functional movement, isometric and hypertrophy exercises, accessory work, as well as mono-structural movement in strength and metabolic conditioning fashions.
Functional movement is movement based on real-world situational biomechanics. They usually involve multi-planar, multi joint movements which place demand on the body’s core musculature and innervation. For example, a squat is a functional exercise because it trains the muscles used when you rise up and down from a chair or pick up low objects. Lack of core stability, joint mobility, flexibility and balance increases the risk of injury all around; in sports and in everyday life, which is why this type of training is so essential for the human body.
Isometrics are exercises where your muscles tense up, but don’t actually move. In positions like these, the muscle fibers are activated but since there are equal forces against each other, there is no movement. Isometrics enhance stabilization, creating better functional movement while building strength at the same time.
Hypertrophy training is a term for exercises that specifically grow size of muscle cells. The most common type of muscular hypertrophy occurs with weightlifting. We use kettlebells in our program.
Accessory work are movements that steward the smaller support muscles to the big muscle chains. This provides strength and safety for functional movement that we need in every day life.
Mono-structural movement, otherwise known as “cardio” exercises. i.e. Running, Swimming, Rowing, Biking. The reason for this change in terminology is because the realm of aerobic exercise isn’t defined by a type of exercise, but rather by the oxidative metabolic pathway.
Metabolic conditioning simply refers to structured patterns of work and rest periods to elicit a desired response from the body. This desired response is usually to maximize efficiency of a particular energy system. The body has several different methods of getting energy.
All said, movement can look very different person to person, based on pre-existing injuries and conditions, age, etc. Our coaches are trained and prepared to handle it all, helping people to start moving and continue progressing.
