Functional Training is a mode of training that takes into account how your body moves naturally. To do some traditional exercise that we have done in the gym with many pieces of equipment are very “unfunctional”. If you assess how the exercise is performed or how the machine makes you move, often we don’t imitate those movements in life. If you do a leg extension for example, you are taking the quadriceps muscles and working them independently of the rest of the body. When in your daily movements would you use the quadriceps independent of the rest of your body?
Through functional training the body is made to do as many natural movements as possible while using as many muscle fibers as possible. This promotes active muscle fiber development, which in turn burns more calories while doing the exercise plus increases metabolism, improves strength, balance, speed and injury prevention. Giving you the biggest bang for your buck.

Personal trainers must have a strong understanding of the functions and vital processes of the human body so they can effectively design and deliver personal nutrition and physical fitness training programs. It is critical to be knowledgeable in health promotion at every stage of growth and development to meet the needs of various clients.
