Establishing a regular exercise routine is a great way to show your body you care and is much less painful than swallowing a greeting card. Today’s Groupon is a love note to the bonecase you cherish most: for $29, you get six group training sessions and nutritional coaching (a $180 value) at Funktional Fitness, located in Gilbert.
The muscle manufacturers at Funktional Fitness eradicate lethargy through a total-body approach that employs six different workout styles. With a packed weekly schedule of more than 30 group sessions, clients can tone their organ shells in 55-minute bursts of weightlifting, rope jumping, and other cardio and strength-training movements. The studio dedicates a day of the week to each of the six techniques, kicking off with intense strength training on Mondays and following through with regimens designed for endurance and mobility, core-building and conditioning, as well as functional training that readies bodies for day-to-day combat with the neighborhood bully's commitment issues. TRX workouts subject exercisers to bodyweight-based suspension training, and the kettlebell classes take advantage of grab-friendly weights designed for low-impact lifts and swings.
Bodies tend to break down in the absence of proper fuel, which is why Funktional Fitness helps trainees navigate the gnarly worlds of nutrition through discussion, planning, and explanations of why people shouldn't eat gasoline. These nourishment gurus emphasize the importance of fruits and vegetables in maintaining corporeal vigor, taking a big-picture approach that recognizes the merits of a healthy, balanced diet, rather than calorie counting.

After earning reputations as elite trainers throughout the East Valley, NASM-certified personal trainers Luis Galindo and Jeremy Jones pooled 30 years of combined fitness experience to cofound Funktional Fitness.
