Functional Fitness

Functional Fitness has become an industry buzzword over the past decade, popularised by the growth of training approaches such as CrossFit and F45.


At its heart, “functional” refers to a movement that has a real-world application. An exercise that has a direct carry over into daily life. For instance, a squatting movement. When we consider it from this perspective, it’s easy to see how a squat is utilised many times throughout the day. Getting up from a chair, getting out of a car, tying the kids laces and so on. The same goes for the movement patterns of pressing, pulling hinging and more.


Functional movements incorporate more than one muscle group and joint motion. This builds strength and stability in the gym to be put into use in daily life. Not only does this enhance strength, physique and overall fitness but helps greatly in prevention of injury.


Functional Fitness is one of the cornerstones to Personal Training Paisleys approach to helping clients achieve their fitness goals. It is a varied, fun and engaging way to train. Within functional training there are several constituent areas.


“Fitness”, “work capacity”, “engine”. These are all by words for conditioning. In short, how hard can you work and for how long before you reach your limits.
