Fortitude Training Systems
WHAT IS FTS?
Small group training program that focuses on building strength in the body and mind. FTS is not a large class format typically seen in most gyms. While many programs today use high intensity cardio to burn calories and make you sweat, FTS emphasizes technique, quality of movement, and muscular strength. Why build strength? Strength training has many benefits you can't get from other forms of exercise including:
BETTER INSULIN SENSITIVITY
INCREASE IN BONE DENSITY
INCREASE IN MOVEMENT QUALITY FOR DAY TO DAY TASKS
BOOST IN CONFIDENCE
REDUCED ACHES AND PAINS
HIGHER QUALITY OF PERFORMANCE IN OTHER SPORTS AND ACTIVITIES
When Lydia first began FTS she was unable to squat more than a quarter of the way down to the parallel. She struggled with knee pain and was hesitant to lift weights. After a couple months of training she was able to perform a full depth squat to parallel without any pain. She also had struggled with elbow tendinitis which quickly dissipated after a few weeks. Lydia has lost inches off of her waist and hips which has given her a great reason to buy new clothing. She is a very dedicated individual, and we can't wait to see where she goes!
Tammy, 53, started her training with FTS after a big "wake-up call" in the doctors office. Her cholesterol had risen high enough that was of concern, especially in light of a family history of heart disease and stroke. Her doctor gave her some time to get her cholesterol under control and she did just that! In a little over five months of consistent training she was able to drop her LDL by 25 points, total cholesterol over 30 points along with losing three inches off her waist and three and a half inches off of her hips. She has also lost 12 lbs. and she continues to show up to every single class- that's dedication!
