Tyler has put together an absolutely phenomenal team, and the holistic and tailored approach towards helping his clients/members meet their goals truly stands apart. Despite my incredibly fluid and demanding work/life schedule (travel requirements for work unexpectedly exploded right after I began the program), the team has been simultaneously adaptable, patient, and yet appropriately encouraging to help design and implement a program that will get results. Super positive, clean, professional, and motivational environment – can’t say enough good things about the FE ecosystem and experience thus far. 👍🏼👍🏼
Great experience. My coach, Ann-Marie, is attentive, responsive and encouraging. She prepares challenging programs, customized to my goals. Everyone on the staff is friendly and supportive.
The coaches, the atmosphere and the other people that come to this gym, makes the difference
I have been a member of Functional Effect for over 5 years and highly recommend this facility to anyone interested in lifelong health and fitness. No matter what your age or fitness level, the trainers at FE can meet your needs and goals with safe, individualized programs. In addition, the members are super friendly and supportive. You need to visit this facility and get additional information. They won’t disappoint!
After my back pain came back, Functional Effect was able to get me on my feet again. Always a great place to workout with no judgement! Thanks FE team!
Do not pass this place up! It’s not a gym, it’s a community. They provide personalized fitness programs asked on your goals, and offer challenging/fun/fresh group workouts every week.
I have been going to Tyler for a number of years. He trained me pre stroke and now post stroke. Over two and half years ago I had a basilar artery stenosis (stroke) I lost breathing, voice and swallowing as well as weight loss and muscle tone. Tyler along with many others worked with me to bring me back to near normal. In May I turn 80 and am very thankful for all the help and support I have been given.
Tyler not only worked on my body but also was very encouraging in helping me over come the depression that comes with a stroke. I highly recommend Tyler and Functional Effect.
Two years ago, I decided that I desperately wanted to age better than most people I see. I wanted to be able to put on and tie my own shoes, to reach overhead, to stand up tall, etc. I had recovered from a frozen shoulder the previous year and that required a lot of physical therapy. My therapist, a very bright and caring woman told me I was not moving well in so many ways. She was willing to work with me, but the cost of that was prohibitive.
Months before I had seen Sarah at my gym. I was always very impressed with her, so when she told me she had her own gym and was married to a chiropractor who also worked at the gym, I was intrigued! I kept her card, but did not act on it for several months. Life happened and I stopped working out.
One day I was talking to one of my patients and decided to take my own advice and get active again. I could get back to my usual gym, but was not impressed with the trainers I saw there. So, I called Sarah and set up my appointment.
I will tell you it has not been an easy journey. I realized that despite being very active my body was not moving well. Patterns had been established over time that were now causing me discomfort and even pain. I could not get up off of the floor without using my arms. My squats were atrotious! My core was weak! More than once I was brought to tears as to how hard my brain had to work to understand how to move better! Without the encouragement of Tyler, Sarah, Andrew, Dave and the rest of the staff, not to mention the other awesome clients, I think I would have thrown in the towel a long time ago.
So it has been a little over two years, I have gained muscle, improved strength, toned quite a bit, lost some weight and best of all MOVE BETTER! I quite honestly do not SEE the changes, but am often told that I look younger than ever 🙂 I do FEEL the change!
It is very difficult to get bored at Functional Effects- my program changes just when I have mastered it, there are regular challenges and the place is just fun! I can interact with others, or zone in my own little world. FE helps me to take care of all of me, including managing stress, learning how to be more mindful, and give myself a break!
FE has made a difference in my life! Thank you FE!
The fitness assistance, direction, and training I receive from Functional Effects is always evolving, adapting, and working specifically towards my needs. I cannot ask anymore from the crew at FE. I rely on them for guidance, and training, whether for basic fitness or for intense training such as preparing for a Triathlon. The staff is friendly and attentive, and it’s a great environment to be in all the time. FE is for everybody. When I first started over 2 years ago, I was far from being fit, but I was never intimated by their programs. I cannot encourage people enough to join FE. You will get a lot of attention, and compassion from everyone.
I always rely on Dr. Reynolds to help me with health related questions from aches and pains, to nutrition. He takes a holistic approach to health and it’s great to work with someone who is incredibly knowledgeable about the body, health, and well-being. Even better his services are so well priced and I always feel I get more than what I pay for.read more
Before finding us, what was your struggle? What were your biggest frustrations?
I wanted to lose weight and I had broken my knee and was getting back to my routine of playing tennis but was suffering great hip pain and was having trouble keeping up. Wanted to get back to where I was but was having trouble.
How did your struggle and frustrations affect your life? What did you feel like before you made your transformation?
I felt demoted. I played competitive tennis and I used to be a court 1 player and now played court 4 due to my limited mobility. My team didn’t have the confidence in me to even play me in our playoff matches. I was left off the line up when I was once a key contributor.
How did our program help you?
I feel stronger, have regained my team one spot with great mobility and feel great. Haven’t lost 20 pounds but I feel and look better.
How is life different for you now?
I have more energy, can move better and feel I can protect myself from future injury because of it. This is the only exercise routine I have ever been consistent with. I love the FE community and can’t imagine my routine without it.
Functional Effect is something special. I’ve been to other gyms and worked with other trainers at several places, and I can honestly say FE is a level above them. I am 50 and just tested for my black belt, and the structured workouts I did with FE were essential to this being a success for me. Andrew, Ashley, and Jodie worked with me and really helped me focus on good quality of motion. My core strength has never been better. The gym has a great energy and I look forward to showing up.
Joined FE in November of 2020.Best decision I could have made for myself. The coaches are awesome and very knowledgeable! They are always present, making sure the members are working out properly and safely. At 60, I never imagined having so much strength. The coaches change up the routines so the workouts never get boring. I can’t imagine not being a part of this group. Thanks FE!
I’ve been at FE for awhile, but not totally committed to their program. Take too many days off or go absent for a couple weeks. Life gets in the way, right? Well their coaches were always positive and kept me motivated when I was there. Great group of people who work and workout here too. It’s a hidden gem! The last 5-6 months I’ve been more consistent and I’m doing things now, that I couldn’t do in my teens and twenties. I’ve committed to the program, been consistent and seeing incredible results. Highly recommend this place. One stop shop. Thank me later.
The Coaches at Functional Effect are amazing! They know their business and will help your get to your goal – whatever that is, large or small. They love their clients and genuinely take interest in everyone. I don’t think there’s another gym that compares.
Great workout today with Willie ! He helps me to work hard and get the results I’m looking for.
This gym is a diamond in the rough. I am so thankful I found Functional Effect. The instructors are awesome. They care and are deeply involved in every session. There is a clear advantage to working with their coaches. I feel better, I look better, I’m always looking forward to my next workout, etc. This place has made an impact on me, my wife and my 13 year old son as we all attend individualized session just for us.
Dr. Tyler does an awesome job treating my whole body. The staff keeps me fit and injury free. They address the whole body, mind connection. It’s my happy place!
FE is the best. I have a chronic back injury, and I have never felt better. (most docs want to do surgery on me) The trainers have me doing things I thought I would never do again. They have a very scientific approach to training. I am getting much stronger and I have not felt this good in years. You get a very individual approach to your training. They pride themselves on unlocking just what you need. All with no stress or pressure.
Functional Effect Fitness & Rehabilitation is a well-educated group of fitness specialists that truly understand human anatomy and physiology of the body. With this knowledge they are able to help you reach your fitness goals in a faster and safer way. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!
Dr. Tyler and his staff at Functional Effect have helped been great! Dr. Tyler has a great way of explaining what you are doing right and also wrong. He explains it in an easy to understand way, so that I can try and prevent the issues I was having.
In truth, for years I mostly thought of my body as that thing that moves my brain around and helps me put nutrition into my food hole. I was self-aware enough to realize it wasn’t a particularly accurate or healthy perspective. So I joined FE about six months ago to get to know my body again: how it works, what it needs, and how to live with it.
I’ve been dragging my feet with this testimonial because it would be so much more satisfying to say my body and attitude have been transformed. In truth, I’ve put on muscle steadily, my percent body fat has improved somewhat, I’m a bit more toned, have better range of motion, improved stamina, and flexibility. All good outcomes. It’s been a lot of work so far, with a lot more to do in order to reach my goals.
The good news is Sarah and Tyler have built a great facility meant for the kind of work I need to do. They’ve given me guidance, direction, and a plan to follow. Trainers Andrew and Dave have motivated me, been generous with their time, and genuinely caring (but not so caring I feel uneasy).
The FE community is welcoming. Though, I don’t like people and try to avoid direct eye contact. But that’s fine. It’s the kind of place that most anyone can feel comfortable to come and make steady progress. I kind of love it.
A Wonderful Experience for this Senior woman, from the Trainers to the Dietician to the Chiropractor! So thoughtful, compassionate and understanding! Enjoyed my time with this group, and then I moved away. Highly Recommend going here for Full Service Health help!
Dr. Tyler is the greatest! He will always tell you the truth and assist in anyway he can.
I’ve had an exceptional experience working with Sarah over the past few months. What stood out to me was her ability to develop a customized plan that specifically addressed my goals. This let me know that she was truly listening during our consultation, and that she valued my opinions. Honestly, this can’t be said about most fitness coaches I’ve had in the past. I really appreciate her comprehensive and holistic approach. She asked about both short and long-term objectives, movement assessments, past nutritional formulations, stress levels, sleep, etc. I told her that I was getting ready for a two week-long trip to Alaska, with several demanding ascents. This fit into the overarching goal of being ready for mountain hunting every fall. Once the assessment was finished, she dialed in my workout schedule and accompanying diet. I was surprised to see how minimal the workout schedule was considering how physically demanding the trip was going to be. She put me on a two day per week full body routine (I was used to a 5-6 day per week bodybuilding split). Nevertheless, I put my full faith in her and followed the program to a T. I dropped almost 10 pounds in 11 weeks, and breezed through every climb. I thought I was in shape on past excursions, but this was noticeably different. I think the accountability of having a trainer like Sarah pushed me through a plateau that I had been experiencing for quite some time, and it felt good to see results again. I’m excited to continue working with Sarah, and I feel confident that not only will I be in peak condition in the fall, but also for some loftier goals I have for the future.
YOU need to experience the Functional Effect. Your complete transformation doesn’t stop at fitness and rehab. You’ll leave there a better person physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally! You’ll be surrounded by the best coaches in the fitness industry and a community of encouraging members that you’ll know by first name by the time you walk out the door on your first visit. The gym goes by FE, and not just for Functional Effect but as I know it… Family Effect(Home).
I’ve been going here for years. Great people, knowledgeable coaches. Awesome clientele. Lots to say, not enough time.
Dr. Tyler Reynolds is a body magician! We regularly see him and are very pleased with his diligent care, knowledge base and overall quality of service. He strives to be available and accommodate our hectic schedule as well. Couldn’t recommend him enough.
If you want a good time… don’t ask for Dom! I kid, he knows how to make you laugh as you feel like you are dying cause you’ve never worked out before. Andrew’s great at making you feel uncomfortable… in a good way. Willie, he’s always eating. All these guys know how to judge you. They are skilled in telling you what you’re doing wrong. At the same time they hype you up when you’re doing it right. They are like cactus. Wrigley, is the best gym dog ever… though the drool may be worked on. I recommend this place… but I also hate myself for going. 10/10
I have had the privilege of working with a phenomenal health coach, Sarah. I can not express how grateful I am to have had the opportunity to work with her. She has deep knowledge and understanding of various aspect of health and wellness including nutrition, exercise, stress management and overall lifestyle habits. She customizes the plan to fit your lifestyle. Her positive attitude and motivation are exceptional Thanks to her expertise, guidance and genuine care, I have experienced positive transformation in my health and overall life. I highly recommend her as a health coach and their fitness center.
After working out at XSport Fitness for over two decades I found a new home after working out at Functional Effect Fitness and Rehabilitation. I enjoy showing up to the gym daily and being greeted by the coaches and other members. The coaches care about you and set up a workout routine that challenges you and is geared for you. I feel I get more out of this gym than the big gym I have attended for decades.
“I’m too busy to work out”, “my schedule is too chaotic/abnormal”, “I do not have the time”.
I’m sure these statements ring true to many that read this. As a nurse practitioner in one of the busiest level one trauma centers in the country, these statements are something that not only I said myself, but I commonly hear amongst my peers. Healthcare professionals are notorious for poor self care including sleep hygiene, diet and exercise/movement. How can we as health care providers care for patients to the best of our ability when we don’t care for ourselves?
I cannot thank or say enough good things about Sarah Fischer Reynolds and the Functional Effect family. Sarah and their entire team always take a holistic approach when working with clients. When Sarah sat down with me and asked me what my goals were for my health it was all encompassing including my physical activity, diet and overall wellness. She really drives home the importance of the basics of sleep, movement, nutrition, hydration and mental wellness. Also when designing my program she took into account my actual level of stress I’m under daily at my job, time constraints, etc. instead of throwing a blanket program at me which could be even more harmful.
I can truly say with the help of Sarah and the Function Effect family I am bettering myself as a human being which makes me better for all of those around me including my spouse, family, friends, colleagues and patients. My experience with this team has always been one of support, encouragement but also holding accountability. Thank you Sarah and team! You are changing lives daily!
At FE you will always find a welcoming environment. The staff is educated and committed to helping you achieve your goals and be the best version of you.
