Frequently Asked Questions
What machines do you have?
MFF does not have the array of machine-based equipment commonly found in a gym. For many people machines limit full ranges of motion and can decrease core stability due to the reliance on back or chest supports. Our programs are built around 3-dimensional movements aimed to carry over to your activities of daily living. These movements incorporate the entire body, as we use every day, versus isolating joints as seen with machines. Equipment is available to assist or increase resistance as needed.
I have trouble with my knees, low back, shoulders, etc., is MFF right for me?
You are the exact person MFF can help. We understand that most individuals have a history of joint injuries and surgeries that may limit their movement capabilities, such as squatting, and that is ok. MFF starts with a strategy session to better understand any joint issues. The strategy session also includes a movement-based screen to determine the mobility and stability of each joint, which establishes a baseline for your program. Our programs are designed with progressions and regressions in mind since every situation is a little bit different. A coach will always be available to provide an exercise that is best suited for you.
When can I workout?
Members must workout during a scheduled session time. Sessions are offered during the mornings and evenings and are scheduled for one hour. Each session is actively led by a coach, who will ensure proper form and adjust any exercises as needed.
What is small group training?
Small group training consists of 2-6 people being trained by a coach. A program is followed with progressions and regressions for each exercise to accommodate all ability levels. Each participant will be guided by a coach to ensure proper form and that exercises are appropriate. Small groups provide a fun, motivating environment during each session.
