What started as a training program for NFL athletes evolved into a fitness franchise for exercisers of all levels. That’s thanks to the expert coaches at Power Train Sports & Fitness. The team leads boot camp classes that incorporate founder Steve Saunders’ strength and conditioning principles. The approach is designed to keep heart rates up during interval training, boosting fat-burning and metabolism, and provide plenty of one-on-one attention that zeros in on form and individual fitness goals.
Functional Fitness: Beyond the Bench Press
Functional-fitness exercises focus on making everyday tasks easier. Check out Groupon’s basic rundown.
From shoveling snow to climbing stairs, people constantly carry out tasks that may seem mundane, but can lead to serious injury if the body can’t handle the workload. Functional fitness targets groups of muscles throughout the body, conditioning them to work together so they can perform a range of simple tasks more easily and safely. Exercises commonly used in a functional-fitness regimen mimic such everyday movements: squatting to pick up a heavy object, lunging forward toward an out-of-reach ledge, balancing on an unstable chair as the shelf collapses.
Whereas a traditional curl targets the biceps by way of elbow movement, a functional exercise might incorporate the shoulders, spine, hips, knees, and ankles, which trains the upper and lower body to work in unison with the aid of a tightened core. This integration allows the muscles to grow at a similar rate, gaining strength in a way that complements the way a person lives rather than the way they simply work out.
