Do You Exercise for Life or Health? Or Both?
While many people think that exercise is only a way to get in shape or lose weight, it can also increase the quality of your life.


Exercise can help you balance, carry your groceries easier and keep up with your children better.

It can be the impetus for a specific life goal, such as weight loss or muscle building.

Or, it can be what trainers call functional.

What is the difference between functional training and goal-specific training? Which one is the form YOU should follow?

Knowing this difference will help you get the most out of the time you spend working out. Not only that, but it could help make a huge difference in your overall life.

Join special guest, Neal Pire, MA, FACSM, and Melanie Cole, MS, as they help you discover the best type of training for your life and your needs.
