Here is a word from our Phoenix, Arizona branch of Functional Core Fitness:
I am Larry Arnold, and a "Functional Core" is what I offer. Back to Back
National Champion (University of Nebraska '94, '95), NASM certified
Practitioner of Muay Thai, Extensive background in Football, Basketball,
Swimming, Track and Field, and Bodybuilding. With more than 20 years of
athletic performance, and two national championships under my belt, I know
what it takes to be the best on the field of life. I have had the honor of
training with the best athletes in the world, and have designed programs
that challenge the best of the pros, as well as the exercise novice. I instruct
proper breathing techniques, accompanied by postural alignment to deliver
the maximum physical output that a human body can produce. Regardless
of your goals, learning the correct way to use your body is essential for
everyone. Whether you are trying to:
Take your athletics or body to the next level
Increase flexibility for better movement
Gain size/ speed / power
Obtain nutritional counseling
Decrease body fat
Tone your abs
or just feel better
- a functional core is the key.
While treadmills, bench presses and curls are important, I believe in working
the body the way the body works, as a unit. My brand of training can safely
burn as many as 1200 calories per hour, while keeping you mentally
stimulated. The key is to confuse your muscles by using constantly varied
training modalities. The most important factor is to have your exercises
assigned based on your current body alignment and development. Using
kettlebells, plyometrics, boxing and Muay Thai training, along with standard
practices, I can assure you of a complete and balanced body. Stretching
sessions, exercise balls, and balance/stability training are all useful tools
when preparing your body for increased stresses. It is those stresses that
cause the body to adapt by losing fat, or increasing strength. I look forward
to teaching you to identify your barriers, and to overcome them. I am
currently available for one on one or group training in the Phoenix area.
