Functional Training is a general term for training methods, which differ from traditional strength training by focusing on complex movement patterns. The aim of this training method is the interplay of muscles and the support of muscle building.
Functional Training is a whole-body training, for which Sling Trainers are often used. Exercises with the own body weight are also often done for Functional Training. The Functional Training is meant to extend the classic strength training by further aspects and thus resulting in a holistic strength training.
There are a number of fitness equipment available to do Functional Training, which are kettlebells, chin up bars, weight balls. Sling Trainers are among the most common training devices offering very varied exercises. Balance trainers and Battle ropes are also used for Functional Training.
Functional Training is suitable for sports people of every age and every training level.
