Just last month, we highlighted an article by our very own Michelle Scacchi about the importance of functional fitness. We are excited to learn that Michelle has been featured elaborating her views on Functional Fitness in the Club Business International magazine!
Club Business International (CBI) is the health and fitness industry’s leading magazine published by International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association (IHRSA).
Michelle notes that with the lockdown that was in effect earlier this year and the continued strain On outdoor activity during the pandemic, it is more important than ever to focus on functional practices.
She goes on to say:
“The special circumstances having to do with the pan-demic have led us to reexamine the role of functional fitness in different populations, young and old, alike. As people return to their routines, the best functional practices have never been more vital, especially given how many members have lost conditioning. Movement patterns—such as squatting, lunging, pushing, pulling, hinging, rotating, walking, and running—are essential for performing everyday activities, so we’ve put movement in the forefront of our fitness classes, across the board.”
Read the whole article on the IHRSA website using their e-magazine format.
We wish Michelle more successes going forward! Check out our schedule and come work out with her!
