Feb’starter Functional Fitness

 

Building strength and confidence in how you move each and everyday is key to living your best life. To help we’ve put together this series called Functional Fitness. Functional Fitness is a classification of training that prepares the body for real-life movements and activities.

As with most training, Functional moves require us to maintain a good posture.  Need more help in this area?  Fred has put together a quick guide to helping you maintain a neutral spine.
