Functional Training: What is it and what are the benefits?

If you’ve browsed gym schedules, chances are you’ve seen a functional training session, but what exactly is it? Well, it’s just that—a workout designed to be functional.

In this case, functional exercises help you perform everyday activities and tend to use movement patterns that mimic how you move naturally. Think squats, presses and overhead pull-ups; these may initially seem cramped for a gym environment, but compare this to sitting down and standing up from a chair, placing something on a shelf or pulling a wheelchair and you quickly begin to see the parallels.
