Ever met a gym rat with a flawless body who completely threw their back out by simply lifting a suitcase? They spend so much time in the gym but at the mercy machines thus creating a body who only knows how to be strong in a set posture. That’s not real life. Functional fitness helps you improve the way your body functions, reduce pain and risk of injury, improve endurance, balance, and strength and reach your personal best. Whether your goal is to improve athletic performance or just reduce daily aches and pains, functional fitness is the way to go. A side perk, its so much more fun than a boring machine routine! If you’ve had a nagging injury or a chronic weak link that prevents you from having fun and living life than exercise therapy is the way to go!
