Fitness as we know it has been heavily influenced by bodybuilding. It’s why most commercial gyms are filled with machines. The problem with machines is that they are designed to target your muscles in isolation. And that’s not how your body is supposed to function because this type of training doesn’t always reflect every day movements.
Functional training works multiple muscle groups at the same time, helping your body function better and more efficiently as a whole. This improves the overall function of your body, booting muscle strength, endurance, posture and flexibility. It can also help to develop more stability in your muscles and body, allowing you to complete everyday activities more effectively.
