Why Functional Training Is Essential For Everyday Living

No Qualification • Distance Learning • Cornwall College Camborne


The discussion surrounding health and wellness is growing at a rapid pace in today's society with the growing obesity epidemic. Training no longer relates soley to professional athletes, but to humans of all ages and abilities: functional training has been growing in popularity over the past decade and we need to be utilising this methodology to improve everyday living. The more you train functionally, the better you will become at working your entire body as one system.

All of these skills are pretty important in everyday life and in the gym, allowing us to move purposefully and confidently and helping us stay sturdy, strong, and safe.
