Functional Training incorporates core strength and mobility. Instead of isolating one muscle group (Example - bicep curl), Functional Training incorporates the entire body moving through several plans. (Example - woodchop). The benefits of this style of working out include:
*Increases the ease of everyday life
*Increases your strength and endurance
*Time efficient workout - burns calories and builds muscle
*Increases flexibility, balance and coordination
*Helps to reduce risk of injury.
So whether you are marathon runner, weight lifter, teenager, mom or grandpa try to add some functional exercises into your weekly workouts. If you're still not sure where to start, let our personal trainers help!
