Functional Training incorporates many of the activities we do in everyday life, performed across multiple planes of movement. The commercial functional training machines carried by Fitness Equipment sales embrace that fact and allow strength training to be more applicable to the everyday movements of the human body as well as sports specific training. In addition to building strength, significant improvements in balance and coordination are primary benefits of the unrestricted motion of functional training.
Your body’s core muscles are the foundation for all movement, so core stability training is essential to daily living and injury prevention. Functional Training engages these core muscles, and often more than one joint, all working together and equally. Stabilizers and core muscles are employed to build true overall strength.
