We are social beings.

And therefore we are thoroughly conditioned by society and culture to the point of habituation and unconsciousness. It's not possible to pay attention to the myriad of stimuli bombarding us. We 'get' socialized regardless of awareness or choice.

Functional Fysical Fitness

The five components of fitness are sequential and interdependent. It is necessary to address them in proper sequence.  Functional  Fysical  Fitness is the re-integration of natural movement.

Human Function is intimately connected with health, and to improve our function is to improve our health and well-being. It is important to recognize that our function is related to our habits, and change takes time.

THERE IS NO QUICK FIX! Healthy function is a result of lifestyle and activity. How long did it take to get your body into the condition it is in? What is a realistic time frame to expect it to change?

All About F3

Exercise is Medicine! We are physical beings. We live and function in the physical realm. This 'outer' physical realm affects and is affected  by 'inner' processes: mental, emotional, spiritual, relational as well as social, vocational, environmental, nutritional and financial. F3 helps all these through the 'doorway' of the fysical.

Creatures of habit.

What we don't know is hurting us. To change habits requires awareness, knowledge, effort and time. There is much to know and consider when addressing lifestyle change towards greater wellness.

What is Human Function?

How does a Human Function?

Asking what is human function is meant to be thought provoking.  Simple movement requires a myriad of functions to occur.  To be knowledgeable about exercise you have to be knowledgeable about the human body, and not just "book" smart, but also experientially movement smart.

Human Function is insidiously and regularly dis-integrated by modern culture.

Dys-function happens for 4 reasons;

1) Underuse,

2) Overuse,

3) Misuse,

4) Injury. 

Every individual develops their own unique weak links, which then translate into limited, improper or under-utilized function. It is necessary to address these weak links to improve function.

You Body is the only instrument you have to 'Function' in life.

How well does yours function?


Although we live in the so called information age, we grievously lack helpful, accurate and clear information about human function. This can be exemplified by the physical and health state of the population around us.*

*(1 in 4 adults and 1 in 10 children are obese. 9 in 10 adults have 1 risk factor for heart disease, 4 in 10 have 3 or more risk factors.)

The human being is the most complex organism in the known universe. Human function is extremely complex and is affected by countless factors and habits.

Functional      Fysical      Fitness   is   "The Human Body's Owner's Manual"

and can help you achieve lifestyle change that is results producing and achievable. 

Human Function happens from the inside out, NOT the outside in! 

Functional Fysical Fitness is based on two fundamental principles;

  • the chain is only as strong as the weakest link and, 
  • health, fitness and wellness are processes not destinations.

The human body is an integrated chain. By strengthening the weak links in the chain, the entire chain is strengthened. The body is also an integrated, dynamic organism, not an isolated static object, and needs to be treated as such when prescribing effective movement.  

Functional Fysical Fitness is based on natural integrated movements of the human body, not isolated muscle action
 and has developed a unique formula for designing and implementing an effective exercise program, F3 = S5.

F3= Functional  Fyscial  Fitness

S5 =  Stamina

comes before strength. There are 5 muscle actions that produce movement, and they need to be balanced to achieve skeletal coordination and stability. 
strength involves progressively overloading the neuromuscular system. The more you do, the more you're able to do.
