Why we do Functional Training?

 

Functional training attempts to adapt or develop exercises which allow individuals to perform the activities of daily life more easily and without injuries. Functional Training is based on functional movement patterns like pulling, pushing, rotating, hinging, squatting, carrying and gait patterns that are used in every day life.

 

What are the benefits of Functional Training?
