Functional Fitness

By 08stoneking0807 | In Blog | on November 24, 2015

If you are leery about lifting weights, you may want to focus your attention on a type of fitness that concentrates on strengthening your everyday movements. “Functional fitness” is increasingly being seen by older adults as a way to counter the loss of strength, mobility, and flexibility that comes with aging. Functional fitness exercises provide a way to counter these effects by placing emphasis on movements that involve multiple joints and muscles  and mimic everyday movements such as lifting and carrying groceries. Exercises involving pulling, pushing, bending and lifting, rotational movements, and single-leg movements help those following functional-fitness programs to put their efforts in the areas that count most—the ones that are used to conduct everyday tasks.

 

We use the functional mobility assessment to determine your overall function compared to those in the same age range and gender. This is how we can track your progress.
