John Watson is a functional fitness trainer serving the East Hartford CT area.  His Glastonbury CT studio, Movement Training by Design, welcomes people from all walks of life. Although you may be physically fit, there may be room for improvement in how WELL your body moves.  Movement is a combination of flexibility, strength, endurance and power. The purpose of functional fitness training is to help your muscles learn to work together. When muscle groups are exercised together, they learn to perform everyday activities with efficiency. Muscle groups which have been strengthened work efficiently, make it easier to lift, pick up low objects, and move without injury.

Functional fitness movements that use multiple muscles and joints prepare the body for common activities such as vacuuming, shoveling, and squatting to pick up a low object. There are five movement patterns that must be mastered. They include hinging, rotational movements, pushing/pulling, lunging, and squatting. People of all ages and any fitness level can be trained to move better, with strength and confidence. Students start by using their own body weight for resistance and weights may be added later in the training. Call 860-970-8575 for more information.
