    What Is Functional Fitness?

    Functional training is not your standard barbell or cardio training. Functional fitness isn’t entirely focused on targeting different muscle groups and to just burn fat but to ensure that the body is capable of performing “real-life” movements and activities day to day.

    For example, functional workouts include squatting, lifting, pulling, leaning back on your weight, and more.
