Functional Training
What is it?

Eligibility: Military, DA Civilians, Retirees, Dependants (18+).

  • Functional training will aim to provide you with the strength, endurance, power, speed, flexibility, and range of motion you need to thrive through your life. We utilize basic functional movement patterns such as pushing, pulling, squatting, rotating, carrying and gait patterns (walking and running) every day. Through Dynamic Training, Metabolic Conditioning, and Extreme Training, our functional training program will utilize exercises that are aimed to improve your movement proficiency in these areas to give you an edge and enhance your performance, so you can achieve your desired goals in a safe manner.


The Program

  • Functional Training will operate in 6 week sessions with a two (2) week break in between sessions.
  • The program will consist of the following training concepts:
    • Dynamic Training- A training method with a focus on gymnastics, body weight, and functional movement exercises.
    • Metabolic Conditioning (MetCon) - A method of training that involves a very high work rate, using exercises designed to burn more calories during your workout and maximize calories burned after your workout, or your afterburn.
    • Extreme Training- A training method intended to focus on speed, power, quickness and agility.


Days and Times

  • Monday-Friday 6am-7am
  • Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 11:30am-12:30pm


Registration Info

  • Register at Graves Fitness Center or The Body Shop Fitness Center.
  • Active duty may register 2 weeks prior to the start of each new session.
  • Other military ID card holders and DoD civilians may register 1 week prior to the start of each new session.

Pay $71.00 for a 10 week session / Pay $36.00 for a 5 week session
Pay-As-You-Go: $7.00 per class for the walk-in fee

Fitness Class Fees
Fort Belvoir Sports and Fitness pays a contractor Non Appropriated Funds (NAF) in order to provide aerobics classes. Charging a small fee allows the fitness centers to recover a portion of the NAF costs as well as provide a highly desirable aerobics program. Without a fee based program, we would not be able to offer the quality or quantity of aerobics classes that we currently have. Thank you for your support.
