Functional fitness

You may not be training to become a professional athlete but add functional exercise into your workout routine and you’re training for everyday life. Pretty cool, huh?

Functional fitness — think full-body exercises like squats, lunges, and lifts using light handweights — strengthens your body so that you can perform everyday motions easily and without injury.

That’s right: you can actually avoid throwing out your back lifting up a bag of groceries with the right functional workout. And if you are a professional athlete — good for you! —adding functional movements to your training leads to better muscular balance and joint stability.

It can even save your life!
