Functional training became popular in response to the demand for exercisers to increase their competence in both sport and activities of daily living. Many training styles today are too unidimensional and do not address the body as a whole. Exercises are focused on isolation of muscle groups and often the superficial “mirror muscles” are the only beneficiaries during the workout. Muscles were made to work collaboratively, not independently. A program that places too much emphasis on individual muscles will inevitably lead to imbalances, decreased performance and potentially chronic pain. Functional training delivers what its name alludes to…enhanced function! Isn’t it nice to know that the work you are putting into your training program is helping you to feel better and be more competent the rest of the day? The exercises performed are total body in nature and use fun and different implements like kettlebells, battle ropes, sandbags, suspension trainers, and a variety of balance equipment.
