Our methods work for EVERYONE

Dietary Restrictions

We work with you on your nutrition based on your lifestyle and physiological needs. This is about changing habits within YOUR existing lifestyle. Diet and nutrition are NOT a one-size-fits all solution.

Existing Injuries

We have customized plans for clients to work around any existing injuries. We will discuss with you any potential limitations and help you to create a plan to meet your goals. 

Limited Time

We use "intensity enhancers" to minimize time in the gym and maximize results. Most of our clients train 2-3 times per week with weights and 3-4 days per week of cardio with a heart rate monitor.

Stacy left her full-time position as an executive working for a major accounting firm three years later to also pursue a career as a trainer. Click here for our About Page.

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.

What Functional Strength Clients Say!

Seven years ago I was caught by the Iron bug after reading the Purposeful Primitive. I have been following Marty Gallagher's work ever since. When Marty mentioned remote coaching on his RAW podcast I decided to inquire about his services. I love lifting weights and knew this was my chance to take my gains to the next level..

Using Skype and my pre-recorded training sessions as tools Marty has been able to significantly improve my techniques. This accountability has kept me highly motivated to improve my strength gains week after week. Not only have I gotten stronger Marty's vast knowledge has improved both my cardio and nutrition goals..

I am now feeling stronger and fitter than ever before. Working with Marty one-on-one has had a great influence on me and my transformation goals.

Being a trainer & coach, and having done many courses in the health and fitness industry, there is no substitute for working 1-1 with experts who have been in the trenches for decades at the elite level. Nutrition, lifting techniques, cardio, and programming are all discussed each week and adapted where necessary.

Using my weekly pre-recorded videos to analyse my techniques and make adjustments I have been able to completely revamp my deadlift and squat technique. It feels as if Marty is in the room training me. These technique adjustments have eliminated the knee and back discomfort that I used to experience.

Even when picking up an injury (unrelated to exercise and training) Marty adapted the lifts to allow me to keep training and progressing, when normally without his guidance, I would have stopped to rest.
