Functional Strength and Conditioning
Making everyday tasks easier
Functional Strengthening & Conditioning is very popular in the fitness industry because it helps to build strength and stability, as well as accelerate your recovery from an injury.
What is Functional Strengthening & Conditioning?
The exercises involved in this type of program replicate normal day to day movements, building strength in specific muscles that are used in everyday life. Originally, it was used to strengthen the muscles of weight lifters, but since it also sculpts your muscles, it’s often used for its aesthetic outcomes.
However, since it affects your muscles and trains them to work together to complete a task, it can be used to maintain or improve your quality of life. Generally, Functional Strengthening & Conditioning uses a combination of aerobic training, gymnastic moves and free weights to build muscles that are perfectly suited to the requirements of your daily life. It makes it easier to perform your daily activities, whether that’s walking the dog, carrying your groceries or participating in sporting activities.
