What is Functional Fitness Training?

Functional fitness training is also known as cross-training. The principle of functional fitness is about adding variety to equipment users’ training routine. This allows them to develop individual components of fitness. Functional fitness focuses on building individual muscle groups to increase overall fitness.

Cross Training and functional fitness focus on scalable resistance training. Whoever is using the cross-training equipment can change the intensity of the workout depending on their ability. While the intensity of the workout will shift, the techniques will stay the same for each user. 

This type of training is based on the established belief that the specific fitness needs of everyone always stays the same. Whether they’re athletes or never worked out before. The intensity of the functional training changes not exercise techniques.

Benefits of Functional Fitness Cross-Training

1. Inclusive for all fitness abilities

Functional fitness is a diverse way of training that focuses on someone’s overall fitness. It’s a highly adaptable way to exercise as users can adapt the intensity of their exercises. With cross-training, the exercises don’t change. What varies is how intense the user chooses to workout. This is why our cross-training equipment is inclusive to a wide range of people, regardless of their fitness levels.

2. Reduced risk of injury

An injury from exercise is likely if the intensity of the workout is too high. This puts too much stress on the participant’s joints and muscle groups. Cross-training allows users to change their workouts to fit how they feel that day. If someone’s upper body muscle groups feel sore, they can lower the intensity of the exercise and use the equipment for a recovery session. This will reduce the risk of injury and improve recovery.

3. Improve Functional Movements

Functional movements and functional strength are aspects of fitness people use day-to-day. Most conventional weightlifting exercises will not need functional movements. This can lead to improvements in specific muscle groups. Without improving general strength and fitness. Cross-training activities are variations of movements people do every day. But with different levels of intensity to ensure the user improves their strength and endurance.

4. Build both strength & endurance at the same time

There is a misconception that you can only increase strength and cardio with separate exercises. But this is a problem with conventional fitness equipment you see in gyms. With functional fitness training, you can improve both strength and endurance simultaneously. This type of training blends functional movements with resistance, typically involving body weight. Allowing users to build muscular and aerobic endurance and strength during the same exercise.

5. More Likely to Stick to Working Out

Cross-training offers a lot more variety than conventional workout routines. One of the main reasons for people not sticking to their workout routine is boredom. If the exercise equipment is not dynamic and interesting, people won’t use them. With functional fitness equipment, the range of workouts available varies to keep people engaged.
