Foundation of fitness at Mississauga Elite

Summer is done, fall has more or less started and we are looking at a nice influx of new members

When new students come to the academy we try to get a good gauge of the over-all training goals, regardless what direction you are looking to go with your training a solid fitness base is a must.

With gym’s packed with people not making any notable progress towards their fitness goals it was only a matter of time until; they started thinking there was something wrong with the system, It took a while but a large amount of people did and started focusing on whats is now popularly known as  functional training.

Using some new tools to get the job done generally this was a better bet for people than banging out heavy weights in the gym with poor form, or taking the slow and steady route via the treadmill and stair-master for 30-45 mins a day.  As always though the team at elite training centre are looking to raise the bar even higher.

The road Beyond Functional Training

The down side of the tech revolution is the average person  works long hours at a computer desk or work station in positions far from ideal for our health.

On average we also spends too much time sitting down; as a result we all know someone suffering from a bad back or another from this familiar laundry list of health problems

  • Lower back pain
  • Tight hips
  • Upper back tightness
  • Poor posture
  • Restricted breathing
  • Shoulder pain.
