Cory Gossett

"One of the aspects I appreciate most is Kenton's dedication to functional strength and movement training. It's not just about building vanity muscles but being functional and ready for everyday life. His holistic approach has transformed not only my physique but also how I approach fitness in general."

Functional movement focuses on exercises that mimic everyday activities, enhancing your body’s ability to perform tasks efficiently and safely. Unlike traditional workouts that isolate individual muscles, functional training emphasizes movement patterns that engage multiple muscle groups simultaneously.

By incorporating major movements such as pushing, pulling, rotation, and carrying, functional training improves strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination. It also promotes better posture and reduces the risk of injury.

My functional training service is designed to help you master these essential movement patterns, empowering you to excel in your daily life and fitness pursuits.

Functional Movement


Muscle Growth

Pushing movements involve exerting force away from your body using upper and lower body muscles.

Upper Body Pushing includes push-ups, bench presses, and overhead presses. These exercises target muscles such as the chest, shoulders, and triceps, enhancing upper-body strength and stability.

Lower Body Pushing movements include squats and lunges. These exercises target muscles such as the quadriceps, glutes, and hamstrings, improving lower-body strength and power.

By mastering pushing movements, you enhance your ability to move objects, open doors, or push yourself up from the ground.

Pulling movements involve drawing objects towards your body or pulling your body towards an object, engaging both upper and lower body muscles.

Upper Body Pull examples include pull-ups and rows. These exercises target muscles such as the back, biceps, and forearms, enhancing upper-body strength and posture.

Lower Body Pulling incorporates movements such as deadlifts and hip hinges. These exercises target muscles such as the hamstrings, glutes, and lower back, improving lower body strength and stability.

Mastering pulling movements aids in lifting objects, climbing, and pulling yourself up.

Unleash Your Power

Enhance your mental and physical power with personalized strength training from a dedicated fitness professional.


Carrying movements involve transporting objects from one place to another, often requiring stability and coordination. Examples include farmer’s walks, suitcase carries, and overhead carries. These exercises target muscles throughout the body, including the core, shoulders, and grip, improving overall functional strength and endurance.

Mastering carrying movements assists in carrying groceries, moving furniture, or lifting heavy objects safely.

Rotational movements involve twisting your torso or limbs around a central axis. Examples include woodchoppers and cable rotations. These exercises target muscles throughout the core, including the obliques, abdominals, and lower back, enhancing rotational strength and stability.

Improving rotation helps in activities like swinging a golf club, throwing a ball, or reaching for objects in different directions.
