Fitat60 Functional Fitness
Functional Fitness is a classification of training that prepares the body for real-life movements and activities. It trains your muscles to work together and prepares them for daily tasks by simulating common movements you might do at home, at work, or in sports.
In this session it is important that you take the time to understand your own physical limits. Work with your body and not against it. And as always, speak to your healthcare professional before making any significant changes to your fitness or nutrition routines.
You do not need to complete the whole routine today – important to work on getting the moves right, practice and become comfortable with them. The intent of this program is to practice and progress yourself to a Functional Fitness movement called the GetUp (also known as the Turkish and our very own Fred is an award-winning champion of this move).
We want to get you to a point where you are confident and comfortable to complete the GetUp and integrate this into your fitness regime a couple of times a week.
Posture is key and you’ll hear Fred talking about keeping a “neutral spine”. Need help on this?
Once you have built confidence in the moves above, you should be able to bring them together into the GetUp. Use the GetUp on its own (post a good warm-up of course) or as a finisher to any other exercise.
We have put together this video for you to use when not needing to complete all the other Functional Fitness routines above.
Good luck and you’ll be laughing with health.
