What is Functional Fitness and why is it important?

Why is it so important to maintain fitness as we age?

The trend in fitness this year is “functional fitness,” a call to all of us to exercise as we age. Functional fitness is defined as “exercises that train your muscles to help you do everyday activities safely and efficiently”. This has been the ethos of our studio since the day we opened our doors five and a half years ago.

Maintain Your Quality of Life

One of the key points that can be taken away from this fitness trend is that exercise is essential to prevent muscle atrophy.

As we live longer, we must focus on functional fitness to maintain a good quality of life. We recognize that it is difficult for today’s busy professionals to get to the gym regularly; however, this trend reminds every age group that it is either “exercise OR atrophy.”  Let’s choose exercise!
