If you’ve looked into personal training or group fitness classes lately, you’ve probably seen “functional training” in a workout description.
But a far cry from fitness fad, functional training is more than just the latest buzzword, it’s a legitimate workout and it’s all about helping us move better in day-to-day life. Whether that’s picking up your kiddo, carrying the shopping bags from of the car or lifting something down from a top shelf, the key word here is function. A functional workout is one that strengthens you in a particular way that directly translates to an activity outside the gym and within your every day life.
We asked Ryan Bartlett, Founder of Functional for Life personal training to take us through why functional mobile personal training is a great choice for busy parents.
Convenience: You can train almost anywhere
With Functional for Life personal training, you can engage in an awesome functional circuit with no equipment whatsoever, or —when you’re ready to challenge yourself further— with simple free weights or hand held equipment like kettle bells, dumbbells or resistance bands.
You choose where you train, whether it’s the park, the beach, or in your own lounge with the kiddos playing in the next room. You don’t even need much space; most clients can be trained in an area the size of two exercise mats and still have an excellent work out.
