How are corrective exercises different from other exercises?
As you move through your day, consider the positions your body and tissue must adapt to: sitting, reading, standing, walking, etc. Since most people do not have time to pay attention to every single way the body moves, we have developed a collection of exercises to correct the body through movement.
Why does Corrective Exercise work?
In your daily routine, there are certainly moments you feel body aches, soreness, and tightness. We have found that certain repetitive body positions through your lifetime accelerate the degradation of tissues in the body. Doing corrective exercise regularly throughout a week will change how your tissue responds and adapts to these destructive patterns in your body.
Where did these workouts come from?
The Living Functional Series has been designed from over 20 years of corrective exercise-based personal training by fitness pioneer, Sam Iannetta. His unique approach has led to the development of these exercise progressions. Every exercise is designed to address the poor structural adaptations caused by the repetitive positions and movements from our daily lives.
Our understanding and experience has led us to believe if there is a destructive pattern of movement, there must be a pattern of movement that counteracts the damage. The intention of every workout in the Living Functional Series is for you to correctly learn exercises proven to fix poor dysfunctional movement patterns caused from our unique lifestyles. Each work out series is inspired from our clients who have healed themselves through these exercises. If you practice these short and simple exercises 3-6 times a week, you will notice the positive affects of exercise designed for your life as it is.
Why doesn't this feel like an exercise video?
We are not cheerleaders, mascots, models, actors, or false hope. We’ve made each workout to feel like a personal training session and with the use of your computer, tablet, or smartphone you will learn about your body and how movement can lead to a more balanced and durable way of being. Trust that every exercise has been used and continues to be used by Functional Fitness USA Trainers every day. Again, we are not paid actors or celebrity hosts.
The Living Functional Series comes from our service and intention to help others heal themselves with corrective movement and awareness of the body’s true potential.
