WAIT! Before you join a gym this week…

^Look how happy I am with how well I move! Jk. I just think this pic is silly.

What if you joined a gym, went religiously 3x per week for 6 months, and THEN found out that you were wasting your time?

You spent 72 hours figuratively working your butt off but actually didn’t accomplish much physical change.

Don’t let this happen to you!

All over the country, gyms have awesome promotions running right now, targeting people, like you and me, who crave self-improvement in the coming year.

People will be signing up left and right with the best intentions.

Will you be one of them?

I hope you will be!

But before you jump into the trendy class your gym offers, I hope you’ll take a moment to read

Why Functional Foundations Should Be Your First Step


I mentioned recently that I attended group fitness classes with a friend last week. I feel weird calling out the specific program.

So, for the sake of simplicity and anonymity, I’ll henceforth refer to it as Mess Lil’s Pody Bump.

For those of you unfamiliar with Pody Bump, this is a 50(ish)-minute class wherein the instructor leads the group through a fast-paced, low-weight, high-volume “barbell workout.”

The website boasts that one will “perform 70-100 repetitions per body part totaling up to 800 repetitions in a single workout.” Wowza!

Have you ever been to a class like this?

First, let me admit that I think most of Mess Lil’s classes are super fun, Pody Bump included.

Second, the instructors are typically great at leading highly-motivating, energetic classes.

Clients come back, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, loving every second of their workouts.

This is awesome.

What’s NOT awesome is that, from my observations this past week and in many instances previously, the most passionate of Pody Bumpers are likely doing 15,600 improper reps per  body part per year.

That’s a lot of knee discomfort.

That’s a lot of shoulder discomfort.

That’s a lot of elbow discomfort.

That’s a lot of effort and exhaustion–and time!– for not a lot of benefit.

If you’ve been to group fitness classes before, I’m sure you’ve seen it. You’ve seen terrible technique. Perhaps you’ve been guilty of terrible technique!

(No shame, if you have. It’s really not your fault.)

Perhaps you have literally no idea how your technique is, and you just haven’t gotten around to figuring that out yet.

That’s why you need Functional Foundations.

You’ll learn how to do a squat properly–that is, in a way that feels good AND accomplishes the goal–so that you can do ANY WORKOUT PROGRAM and get the best results possible!

Don’t do 15,600 “squats” this year, only to abuse your knees, burn a fraction of the calories you could be burning, and not see the physical changes you could be seeing.

Better to put in the time now than to regret it later.
