So, WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL FITNESS?
New to FUNCTIONAL FITNESS? Heard some buzz? Here's the scoop.
In a nutshell, Functional Fitness is constantly varied, functional movements, performed at high intensity.
Why constantly varied?
Routine is the enemy for mind and body. Not only do routine workouts become boring, but your body also quickly adapts to your routine and stops progressing.
What are functional movements?
Functional movements are compound, efficient movements which maximize work capacity while utilizing various muscle groups simultaneously to complete a task. You perform functional movements daily throughout your life.
Why high intensity?
If you train to become proficient in functional movements at high intensity, you will make tremendous gains in all aspects of fitness and performing such movements at low intensity throughout your day will become second nature.
Is Functional fitness for everyone?
Absolutely! Functional Fitness is scaleable to all fitness levels, ages, genders, sizes, experience, disabilities, etc.

CHARITY OF THE MONTH
Our Charity of the Month is Barbells For Boobs.
Barbells for Boobs® is a 501(c)3 nonprofit breast cancer organization dedicated to the early detection of breast cancer, with an emphasis on women under the age of 40 and men. We believe that everyone has a RIGHT to know if they are living with breast cancer.
Each year CrossFit affiliates around the country raise money for this important cause, an effort that typically culminates with the workout “Grace.” Our event will be November 11. To raise money for this cause you must go to www.barbellsforboobs.org, set up a fundraising page, and join our team “CrossFit 103 & The Squat Academy.” You can then share it with your friends and family on social media. That’s it!
We are hoping to raise $5,000 as a community. The fact is 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. 7% of those women will be under the age of 40. Let’s help raise money to ensure all those who need to be screened can get screened.
