I think it is safe to say my life is fitness. Ever since lifting my first sand filled weight in my grandparent?s basement at 12 years old, I have loved exercising. I have since taken that love of exercising for myself and found that even more so I enjoy bringing fitness to others. Helping people fulfill their personal health goals whether it be weight loss, strength gains, sports performance, or any other of the various goals everyone has, I strive to make each person?s path as fun and beneficial as possible. Some of my greatest joys come when a client reaches their goal, or when they go onto continue on their own in fitness with the knowledge and confidence I have been able to help bestow.

I've worked with many clients in developing the fundamentals of the sport as well as having fun, tough workouts involving boxing as a tool to increase clients stamina, strength and coordination.
Senior Fitness: Working directly with older populations over the past five years in a totally retiree based facility, gives me a good perspective of what is needed to help maintain a pain free and active lifestyle throughout our entire life. A focus for improving the individual clients Activities of Daily Living and helping to promote a overall healthy and active lifestyle may be needed for any client, but holds even more importance as we age.

10/10 Great Workout
 
By Alyssa A / Centreville, VA, USA

Kettle bell exercises/workouts require a lot of attention to form and technique. Kavon does an excellent job of breaking down the fundamentals of each kettle bell exercise in a way that's easy to understand. I also enjoy attending his weekly kettle bell classes because we learn something new every time and I always get a great workout!

 
10/10 Great workout
 
By Rob Ferguson / Arlington, Usa

Kavon does a great job and I really enjoy taking his classes. Kavon is also helping my son with form and getting into kettlebells. I highly recommend Kavon and Functional FitnessVA.

 
10/10 Preping for Olympic Trials
 
By Tom / Falls Church, VA

I had microfracture surgery on my right femur in March of 2009. I was told i would be unable to run prior to end of aug. This posed huge issues, as I had US Olympic Trials for the sport of Skeleton at the beginning of October.

I was at a total loss for how I could train for the biggest races of my life, without being able to run or sprint.

Enter Kavon Atabaki. Kavon was able to train me how to properly use the kettlebell to increase my explosiveness and train my aerobic and anaerobic systems, all without my feet ever leaving the ground. We started with the most basic of actions and progressed all the way to 60 minute Viking Warrior workouts. I made my trip to Olympic Trials in October and blazed some personal records with my pushes and my total down time! I'd only been able to run for 6 weeks and I was performing at a higher level than ever before. This was all thanks to Kavon and his skills with the kettlebell.



 
9/10 Awesome Workouts
 
By Greg / Falls Church, VA USA

Kavon provides me with great workouts, they really challenge me. He is a stickler for the fundamentals, doing the exercises with proper form and safety. I feel much stronger in my lower body and legs along with added flexibility.
