[/caption] Start the New Year off right! Functional Fitness 204 will be offering our January On-Ramp starting Jan. 9, 2011, at 8 p.m. The On-Ramp is six sessions with special dates and times for the holiday season. Join us to learn all about how Functional Fitness can change your life! The on-ramp program is used by various Functional Fitness gyms around the world as a way to integrate new people into the program. Unlike a traditional gym, we don’t just sign you up, hand you a towel and cut you loose among the machines. You are the machine, and we want you to know how to use it properly and safely. In our six-class program, you will learn exactly what Functional Fitness is and why it works. We’ll teach you exactly how to perform all the movements you’ll need to find success in the gym. Don’t worry if you don’t know what a kettlebell is or how to do a barbell snatch. We’ll show you! Some of the movements you will learn include several variations of the squat, as well as the press and the jerk, the deadlift, the clean and the snatch, the kipping pull-up, the kettlebell swing and much more. We’ll make sure you know what you’re doing and can perform all the movements safely and effectively. We believe mechanics and consistency come before intensity. During on-ramp sessions, we’ll also slowly ease you into the intensity of Functional Fitness workouts to make sure you’re working at a challenging but appropriate level. You’ll work hard, but you will work at your level. You absolutely do not need to “train” to come to these classes. Whatever level you are at is fine, and if you are feeling intimidated, put your mind at ease: we will make you right at home! Finally, on-ramp classes are a great way to meet other people who are learning the same things as you. The On-Ramp is $157.50 (tax included) for six sessions, and you need to be at all six sessions for entrance to our group classes. You must make all six sessions. If you would like to continue the program at the conclusion of the On-Ramp, you can purchase a monthly membership. Here’s the schedule: Session 1: Jan. 9, 8 p.m. Session 2: Jan. 11, 8 p.m. Session 3: Jan. 13, 8 p.m. Session 4: Jan. 16, 8 p.m. Session 5: Jan. 18, 8 p.m. Session 6: Jan. 20, 8 p.m. To register, sign up online here.
