Functional training is any type of exercise that has a direct relationship to the activities you perform in your daily life.
Whether you are a marathon runner, a triathlete, or simply a homemaker who wants to carry their children without injury, functional training can help.
Functional training has its origins in rehabilitation. Physical therapists developed exercises that mimicked what patients did at home or work in order to return to their lives or jobs after an injury or surgery. Thus if a patient’s job required repeatedly heavy lifting, rehab would be targeted towards helping them achieve that and it mostly involves activities targeted at the core muscles (abdominal and lower back).
