Functional fitness is on the forefront of the fit-frontier and SICFIT Scottsdale is running ahead of the pack! According to biomechanic Greg Roskopf, “the key to functional exercise is integration. It’s about teaching all the muscles to work together rather than isolating them to work independently.” To us, it just doesn’t make any sense to exclusively do muscle isolation work in the gym when the body is designed to channel tremendous power from muscle system to muscle system. At SICFIT Scottsdale, we use functional fitness to train our athletes to tap into their personal-power-potential and use it to transform their lives both in and out of the gym!
