Isometrics: All You Need Is You
Your trainer may throw a few isometric movements into the fitness mix. Bulk up with knowledge via Groupon’s intro to isometrics.
Charles Atlas, the mail-order fitness king, made his famous transformation from 97-pound weakling to “The World’s Most Perfectly Developed Man” partly by standing stock-still. In his system of self-perfection, he often used moves that pitted muscle against muscle without moving the joints, which is also known as isometrics. These kinds of exercises were ideal during the Great Depression because they required little to no equipment. Press your palms together, hold a plank position, push against a wall, or flex your biceps and you’re increasing tension and placing beneficial stress on your muscle fibers even though you’re not going anywhere. You’re also not requiring much from your joints, tendons, or connective tissue, so isometrics can be an excellent way to maintain muscle even while recovering from an injury or a career as human pretzel. People with arthritis who experience pain with movement can also find them beneficial.
Because they involve holding one position, isometric exercises are tightly targeted on relatively small sections of muscle. For that reason, you probably won’t find a strength-training program that relies on isometric moves alone—in order to develop strength across your entire range of motion, you need to stress the muscle at every angle.

About Functional Sports Performance
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We offer private, semi-private, team, and corporate training. The three things that differentiate us from our competition is the focus on results whether it is somebody trying to lose weight or teams training to be successful against other programs in competition. Second, our focus on customer satisfaction and making sure the each person has an individualized experience when they are in our gym. Third, all of our coaches are CSCS certified which is the highest level of certification anyone can achieve in the fitness industry.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The inspiration to start and run our own gym was seeing and experiencing, a lack of training guidance in drop-in gyms (ie – 24 hour fitness of LA fitness) or being guided in a direction that would either cause injury or turn off people that were in route to their goals. This in turn would move people away from achieving their own goals and succeeding in making the lead healthy and fit lifestyles.
What do you love most about your job?
The thing we love the most about our jobs is the relationships that we are able to build with all of the people we help and the look of happiness when they know they are able to obtain their goals.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
One of the best reactions we’ve ever gotten from a client was with someone who had seen different trainers and physical therapists for an injury that would not go away. After spending one month training with our program, the injury was not only gone, but the area that was incredibly weak was made strong enough so that they were able to compete again and be pain free for the rest of their competitive season.
