Functional 40 - Strength & Mobility



Designed to meet the unique needs of adults over 40, this program empowers you to regain vitality, improve mobility, and enhance overall well-being.

Welcome to our Functional 40 program, a practical and comprehensive 8-week fitness journey designed to optimize functional strength and mobility for those of us over 40.


As we age, maintaining mobility becomes increasingly important. Our program includes dynamic stretching and mobility drills to improve flexibility, range of motion, and joint health, allowing you to move freely and confidently in your daily activities.


Our program focuses on exercises that mimic real-life movements, such as squatting, bending, pushing, and pulling, ensuring that you develop strength and mobility that directly translates to your daily activities.


Designed for beginners of all ages, Functional 40 utilizes a progressive approach to training, gradually increasing intensity and complexity as you build strength and confidence. Each workout is thoughtfully structured to challenge you while ensuring a safe and manageable progression.


Throughout your journey, I will provide you with comprehensive guidance and support every step of the way. Clear and concise instructions accompany each exercise, ensuring proper form and technique to maximize effectiveness and minimize the risk of injury.


Join a community of like-minded individuals on a shared journey to better health. Our online platform fosters camaraderie, accountability, and motivation, providing a supportive environment where you can celebrate successes and overcome challenges together.


So whether you want to improve your endurance to make it easier to keep up with your grandchildren; increase your muscular strength and conditioning, so you can finish a round of golf; or you simply want to lose weight and feel better, Functional 40 is designed to help you improve your balance and mobility, increase your strength and conditioning, and even lose weight and body fat along the way.


Our Functional 40 fitness plan is a goal-driven program. We take into account your medical, injury and physical fitness history, your current lifestyle, your present level of fitness and type of activities, your nutritional habits and more. This information along with your goals, interests and needs, allows us to create the most goal-oriented designed program that will make it easier for you to follow and achieve results.


We don't quick playing because we get old, we get old because we quit playing.

We are getting older. Period. There is nothing we can do to stop that, but we do have a choice in how we grow older. Once we are over 40, getting and staying fit becomes our way for controlling aging and reducing the effects of time on our bodies - and we will show you how to do just that.

Each of our online fitness programs are divided into four-week blocks. Once you have completed your registration and purchase of your online program, you will receive the first 4-week block of workouts for your specific program and will begin on the following Monday of the next week. 

In some cases, we will get you going sooner than this. We have implemented this "Following Monday" process to make sure that you have received your program materials and information and you are ready to go!


So even before you actually begin, you will have a clear roadmap and guidance throughout the program, helping you progress consistently and achieve the best possible results.


During this time, you will receive an email prompting you to download the App. From here you will be able to set-up your profile, review your program and fill out our health and nutrition questionnaires. At any time you can send us any questions or concerns you may have, along with discussing any customization that might be needed for just you.


Every four weeks you will receive a brand set of workouts. Each 4-week block is more intense than the last and will push you to your next level! So, be sure that you aren't skipping any weeks. Work through it and trust the process.

Your Road Map To Success


Over the years we have learned that setting goals that are physiologically realistic and within a designated time frame are the best ways for you to stay committed to any health, nutrition or fitness program for lasting change.


First, from a physiological standpoint, our bodies take time to adapt to change. Whether it’s trying to gain muscle, lose fat, or run a 5k, it takes time. Realistically, it takes 6-8 weeks to see noticeable and measurable results.


Second, there is nothing like a hard deadline or goal if you need the fastest results in the minimum amount of time. Whether it's a birthday, reunion, vacation, wedding or whatever, this is the program for you!


Last, and honestly most importantly, it is about commitment. The commitment you made to yourself when you decided to trust us with your health, nutrition and fitness goals. This commitment is what tells us that you are ready and willing to make the commitment to your health and fitness. Not only for 4 weeks, 8 weeks, but for life.


Putting Your Program Into 5th Gear


Your workout & nutrition programming should focus on making small, manageable changes in your lifestyle over the course of weeks, months and even longer. It's a long-term habit-based program focused on not only monthly progress, but life long results.


But there are times when it's ok to crank up your focus for faster results. This is where we have to accelerate our healthy habits and in turn, your progress. It’s for when you want to make your body transformation and even health, a top priority in your life over a shorter amount of time and kick ass with your workouts and diet.


As we start to crank up the workout intensity in your program, we are also going to crank up the nutrition intensity! But wait, hang on for a second… we are not actually going to do anything different than we do in your normal nutrition programming.


When we have months or years to build our habits, we gradually work on them all over time adding 1-2 habits at a time. But for the next several weeks though, you are going to sharpen your focus like a laser beam and compress them all into our Rules For Success.


Because this is an 8-week program, we don't have that kind of time, so we follow all the rules at once. They are simple, not necessarily easy, (I hope you don't expect easy for maximum results in 8 weeks), but these are fail proof steps (yes fail-proof!) to help you reach your goal and for life-long success!
