XO FAQs

Q: Where’s all the fancy strength machinery?
A: At XO, your good looks will be more than skin deep. Let us explain. Your body is the most complex and amazing machine ever. Typical strength equipment was designed for body builders to isolate individual muscle groups or “Mirror” muscles (the one you see looking in a mirror). That’s not how we live our lives.  Picking up a child, walking, stepping up a curb or just getting groceries out of the car are all incredibly complex movements requiring muscles to act in a symphony of motion. Machines work muscle in isolation. Life demands muscles to work in integration. So where’s all the fancy machinery? You bring it through the door with you and we work it in ways that will amaze you and support your everyday life. We really CAN help you look good, feel great, at any age !
Q: What is Functional Exercise?
A: Exercise that is truly functional supports your Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s). Picking things up, bending, twisting, lifting, walking, stepping, and getting out of a chair are all examples of the normal demands you place on your body. The next time someone says a piece of machinery with a cushy seat and padded handles is ‘functional’ simply ask yourself how it relates to your life. Perhaps the most functional thing about most equipment is getting on or off the seat!
Q: Why does XO cost more than a monthly club membership?
A: First, we have ways to fit ANY budget. Some people will train with us EACH and EVERY time they exercise while others will stop in once a week for some fine-tuning. We also offer group training at a fraction of the cost of personal training.
Q: I have workout equipment at home. Can XO design a program for me?
A: Absolutely! You can meet with a trainer once a week for a great workout and get an exercise program for the rest of the week. Another popular option is to do your cardio workouts at home and focus your weekly personal training sessions on strength and balance.
Q: I already belong to a club. What can XO offer me?
A: All of our services are available to you. You can join our small group training for the comaraderie of a group with the personal attention of a trainer or work one-on-one with you to to ensure proper form and safety.  There is no monthly membership at XO, so it’s not like joining another club.
Q: How is a group training different than a class?
A: We do things differently at XO Fitness. We are not like the typical health club where they hand you a class schedule and send you off on your own. We begin with a private training session to establish what it is you want to achieve and determine your current fitness levels. We’ll show you how to use all the equipment in advance so you know what to expect and how to do the exercises safely and effectively (it’s not like your first day at an aerobics class of 20+).
