Functional fitness is all about training your muscles to help you function outside of the gym. It means working out to be adaptable, dynamic and ready for whatever the world has to throw at you – like those heavy grocery bags that you have to carry up 2 flights of stairs! Functional training uses multi-directional, multi-joint and multi-muscle exercises to get your whole body working together. The keys to being functionally fit are muscle strength, balance and agility. Doing exercises for these key areas will also give you a bonus benefit of core stability!
