What is functional fitness?

Functional fitness is a classification of training that prepares the body for real-life movements and activities. Also known as functinoal triaining or functional movement.  It trains your muscles to work together and prepares them for daily tasks by simulating common movements you might do at home, at work, or in sports. 

Movements such as squatting, reaching, pulling, and lifting will be made easier with functional fitness integrated into your exercise routine.  Functional fitness is focused on building a body capable of doing real-life activities in real-life positions, not just lifting a certain amount of weight in an idealized posture created by a gym machine.

There are a couple components of functional fitness. Before you can move freely in your everyday life without worrying about injury, you must nail the basics. These include strength, balance/coordination, power, range of motion, and mobility. Zeroing in on these aspects of your training will have numerous benefits that translate to your everyday life. Movements such as walking, jogging, running, sprinting, jumping, lifting, pushing, pulling, bending, twisting, turning, standing, starting, stopping, climbing, and lunging will be made easier while training to improve functional strength.

In summary, functional fitness is something that is rooted in all of us. Our bodies were developed with the intention of having all of our muscles work together and support each other to accomplish certain movements and tasks.
