What is functional training?
Functional training is a variety of exercise routines that are designed to make your body better at performing particular movements.
Will functional training benefit me?
Absolutely, functional training can be used on all levels from gentle, beginner routines up to professional athletic sports routines.
One way functional training can be used, is for rehabilitation purposes. For people who may have suffered injury or complications, functional training will help to improve very basic bodily movements, getting you back on track physically.
On the other end of the spectrum, Functional training can help you with sports training and athletic movements. For example, mimicking movements performed in sports such as football, rugby, martial arts and many more. Training these movements in the gym using functional training will help you perform them better when you need to, be it in competition, training sessions or in that important match.
