Function Equals Freedom

Being able to move freely is a crucial aspect of all living beings’ existence; without it, our bodies and minds can suffer terribly. So when we hear the buzzword “functional,” it often conjures up images of throwing medicine balls around and doing endless farmer’s walks. But let’s break down what functional training means:

So why say function equals freedom? Well, Do you want to be physically free to move how you want and be freed from many health issues caused by poor lifestyle choices? Then you have to train for it and foster the discipline to eat right and consistently train. So prepare for life and become fit for purpose. Incorporate movement training to decrease the likelihood of physical injury and increase motor efficiency and overall quality of life. 

Functional Fitness may have become overcomplicated by the industry, but it isn’t to be overlooked, nor the challenge it comes with!
