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: How much will this cost?
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 a Circuit Training Membership and a Cardio/Circuit Membership which you can pay for month-to-month!
Q: I have workout equipment at home. Can XO design a program for me?
A: Absolutely! There is an extra fee due to the time and resources needed to give you a plan that you can actually follow at home, however we would be happy to help you out! Please contact Karin about this option.
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.
