Functional Training

Functional Training is exercise that trains the body for daily life activities.  Physical and Occupational Therapists often use functional training to retrain their clients that have movement disorders.  While this type of training is great for anyone training for a sport,  it is also beneficial for any individual looking to perform daily life tasks (or sports) more easily and without injury.

While weight training machines are a great way to train your muscles, they target and isolate specific muscles in one plane.  Equipment used for functional training involve mainly weight-bearing, multi-jointed exercises that utilize core muscles of the abdomen and lower back.
