Functional Training

Program is postponed indefinitely due to Covid-19

Fort Belvoir’s Functional training program aims 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.


Military, DoD Civilians, Retirees, Family Members (18+)

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:

Recovery Room

Located in the Kawamura Human Performance Center.

The Recovery Room features 3 NormaTec PULSE Recovery Systems for use on legs, hips, and arms.

Normatec boots are available first-come, first-serve basis.

  • Monday - Friday.
  • 7:30 a.m. - 7 p.m.
  • Each session is limited to 30 minutes.

NormaTec PULSE Recovery Systems are dynamic compression devices designed for recovery and rehab. Normatec boots help patrons recover faster between workouts by reducing muscle soreness and improving circulation.

The session will then begin by compression of legs or hips (depending on the attachment being used). Similar to the kneading and stroking done during a massage, each segment of the attachment will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release. This will repeat for each segment of the attachment as the compression pattern works its way up the limb.

Learn more about NormaTec PULSE Recovery Systems on their site.

Eligibility: Active duty, retirees, DoD civilians, contractors, and family members (18 years of age or older).
