Functional training is about improving movement and muscle control. It mirrors how humans were meant to move, and helps to make us move even better. Functional training has a “transfer effect” to real-life situations.
- Corrective Exercise
•Focus on performing exercises that will help improve range of motion, decrease muscle imbalances, and activate stabilizer muscles to build a strong foundation.
- General Strengthening
Functional training doesn’t just strengthen one muscle group at a time it works several muscle groups at once. As a result, you build strength holistically which helps your body to function more efficiently. By using several muscle groups at once, coordination, stability and, neuromuscular control are also improved.
The top goal of functional training is to lower the chance of injury. Some of the top risks of injury for athletes in all sports include: core weakness, muscle imbalances, musculoskeletal abnormalities, and poor neuromuscular control. Functional training addresses all of these issues by activating core muscles.
- Upper Strength and Conditioning
Improve upper body motion and engage the stability muscles to improve control.
- Lower Strength and Conditioning
Improve Lower body motion and engage the stability muscles to improve control.
- Full Body Strength and Core Conditioning
Compound movements while engaging core muscles.
Correct technique will improve performance both in and out of the gym. Research has shown that muscles strength improves significantly with correct form and mechanics.
Correct muscle imbalances with focus on correct mechanics.
Proper initiation and landing
Focus on activating correct primary muscles while engaging correct stabilizers.
