The goal of Functional Strength is to share with trainees the proven modes and methods, techniques and tactics passed along to us by our world champion mentors. These signature techniques are the foundation of the Purposeful Primitive philosophy.   Used by the very best in the World to become stronger and leaner, the Purposeful Primitive training template can help trainees to exercise critical thinking as it relates to physical training, nutrition and the subtle psychological aspects of the transformative process.  We have expropriated the methods used by these greats and utilize this information to transform clients all over the World. 

Increase in Strength

Make strength and power gains of 20-50% in 90 days

Athletes new to this system routinely make dramatic, verifiable progress which is the norm and not the exception.

Our system is time-compressed & minimalistic stressing training intensity over volume. This intense effort produces maximal results in far less training time. 

Prevention of Injuries

Hardcore training is optimal for injury proofing

Our strategy has the additional benefit of dramatically reducing injuries by eliminating gaps of weakness.

These techniques work muscles maximally over a full range-of-motion. Ligaments and tendons are strengthened making muscle insertion points far more resistant to tearing. 

Health and Longevity

Retard the aging process & retain muscle function

The continued use of intense minimalistic strength training enables the retention of muscle function and power late into life.

Using our system can increase power and performance deep into your 40s, 50s and beyond maintaining the strength of a fit teen into your 70s.

The exciting thing about our methods is that this system can transform anyone whether an elite or average person with a minimal amount of time commitment. The Purposeful Primitive signature techniques increase raw strength and power to a significant degree in a relatively short time-frame. When enacted with the requisite intensity and exactitude, this simplistic yet sophisticated system of strength is without rival. When physical capabilities and capacities are improved trainees become more resistant to injury and retain function as they age. Our protocols provide increased strength and vitality while strengthening the human guide wire system in such a way as to reduce and prevent injury.

By improving the five biomotor benchmarks of strength, speed, endurance, agility and flexibility the trainee is made stronger, fitter and more capable, regardless the task. The dilemma is obtaining these important biomotor attributes without having to devote an inordinate amount of time to obtaining strength and stamina.

Marty Gallagher and Stacy Gallagher were married in 1999 and moved to rural Waynesboro, PA. Marty walked away from his full-time job as a COO of a  major political fundraising firm to become a full-time writer and trainer. She left her position as an executive working for Arthur Andersen two years later to homeschool her learning disabled/hearing impaired daughter.

The Gallagher’s home has been a rural destination for world champion athletes, elite tier 1 military spec ops fighters and many of the world’s leading fitness experts and authorities. They have been immersed in a monk-like fitness lifestyle for over 20 years focusing on the tools of what they call the transformative template. Together the duo pursue what Gallagher labels, “The Tao of Fitness.”
