E X C I T I N G  N E W S ! ! !

I couldn't think of a better way to bring 2018 to a close and enter 2019, than officially opening F U N C T R A I N !

It has been a busy few weeks over Christmas, as the cleaning, painting and building all took place, but we got there!

Nestled on the picturesque Sketrick Island, Killinchy, Co. Down, FuncTrain specialises in: * Personal Training
* Movement Analysis
* Bespoke Programmes
* Sports Massage * Correctional Movement

Ahead of welcoming my first clients tomorrow, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped, supported and encouraged me to take the plunge and set up FuncTrain.

This is the start of an exciting journey, and I hope you will join me!

Gareth

Ironman finished and well done to all that took part in Barcelona. Now the dust has settled we can sit back and reflect on an incredible journey. I have nothing but admiration and a bucket load of pride for 3 guys I have worked closely with this year on the lead up to ironman Barcelona. Each with their own little problems and pains, hard work, determination and buckets of sweat and tears got them all to places they have never been before! Well done @markjadamson @mcagents and eddie johnston!Onwards and upwards for the next challenge!!! Need help yourself getting race ready? Dm for more info!!!

MY SHOULDER HURTS! 
Possibly the most common phrase I have heard this week. So let's try and shed some light as to why, how and what we can do to prevent it
Ok here goes 
1) it's cold and flu season. This affects the nervous system and can cause tension in common sights and cause pain
2) we don't use all of these cool muscles to bring the shoulder blades in towards the spine when we do pull exercises. Most commonly upper traps and levator scap win the competition and scapular goes up much more than in, causes excess stress and tension in the shoulders and neck
3) our press ups become shoulder press's, ok this is a lot more specific but think about it as it can apply to a lot of press exercises. As we get tired our hands move up past our eye line instead of being in line with our shoulders. Can cause pinching in the shoulder joint but also here causes our shoulders to shrug up again causing a lot of tension and possible pain.

These are just a few reasons as to what can be going on and does in no way encapsulate every possible reason why.
Starting thinking about all these things and what muscles should be working and you yourself can troubleshoot what should be happening. Need help, give me a shout!

Physiotherapists are USELESS!
Is something that was said to me a few days ago and it started an interesting conversation. A good trainer that I know got talking about some knee pain he has been having on and off for quiet sometime and had been to a physio for help. After a few sessions and exercises prescribed (he did them for a week or so) but to no improvement when he went back to his heavy lifting. Therefore felt a bit annoyed that it didn't work. 
Now I come across this a lot because people want a 'quick fix' for something that might have been manifesting over years of training with non balanced workouts, form etc. Now in my opinion everything that was done was correct I just think more time has to be spent educating people as to why these chosen exercises are specifically going to help not only in the short term but the long term so it doesn't happen again! Do we all feel too much pressure on time with clients that we have to fit it all in quickly so to get through our daily quota? Or what are your thoughts? #functionaltraining #wellness #healthylifestyle #strength #weightlossjourney #fit #rehab #rehabilitation #painfree #movement #posture #physiotherapy

What a weekend for @northdownhockey1896 5matches against some incredible teams and I hope all the team came away learning something a)about themselves and b) a new insight into the sport they love.
We pushed them way outside their comfort zone and showed them how to function better as individuals and as a team. Remember it's not only about pushing hard but how you mentally cope with it! #team #oneclub #hockey #fieldhockey #fitness #wellness #functionaltraining #recovery #teambuilding #belgium #preseason #mentalhealth #hardwork

Incredibly proud of my clients @mcagents & @markjadamson who completed the Dún Laoghaire #ironman 70.3 yesterday!

Well done Michael and Mark!

Rewind a few months, and people were telling them that to achieve something like this was impossible.

Through hard work and determination, here they stand at the finish line!

With the correct training anything is possible.

Train smart not just hard!
