What does it mean to be in shape, it means being able to look good.
What does it mean to be fit? It is a measure of your actual fitness, not how good you look. Can a bodybuilder run 10 kilometers? Can a model who has starved herself for days for a shoot do the same? Probably not but some would say that they are in good shape.
At JETT Training are measure of fitness is functionally strength.
Functional training is a classification of exercise which involves training the body for the activities performed in daily life.
The functional aspect of training is the primary focus of JETT Training – demonstrate the two Turkish get-ups
How many things can you see in your real life within these two movements?
Get answers from the crowd…
Simple things like getting up and down off the ground, sometimes with something in both hands…like a baby.
Being able to kneel, to stand, to reach for something, to handle weight over your head, take things on and off of a shelf or in short being able to handle your ADLs (Activities of Daily Living).
This functional aspect of Training is always the first goal of JETT and this is achieved in a few ways.
As mentioned we use Functional Training exercises
We also give all of our clients a Functional Movement Screen that is designed to identify possible asymmetries, which of course ensure better functionality and a reduction of possible injuries.
We must not forget that cardio vascular health can be functional as well, because if you don’t have it…well you can’t really function very well. That being said we have a strong focus on cardio vascular health as well. We provide programs for our clients, I am opposed to charging people to hold their hands while on the treadmill.
The last component of course is diet. If you are obese, then you can throw functional out the window. I have struggled with the best approach to this most important issue over the years. We now use a nutritional line of products called Isagenix and have espoused their approach and it is working well for our clients.
Put all these things together and you and everyone you know can be fit and eventually in “shape”.
That being said who is a candidate…very easy everyone because we all need it.
More specifically who do I want (I’m very selective).
I like daytime availability!! That means:
I like stay at home Mom’s
I like those business owners that have control of their schedules
I like people that want to be fit
I like people that want to be functional
I am an easy sell, just listen for people while you have your business lunches…are they complaining about what they are eating and how it will effect there waist line
I’m all about weaving things into conversation…listen for these things
Listen for people who you are talking to about their New Year’s resolutions
Listen for people complaining about an injury…we specialize in post-rehab work
Listen for those who may be or soon to be pregnant…I have a pre/post natal certification
Listen for anyone who wants to “Look and Feel Better”
