What is functional training?

Functional training is training that incorporates a full spectrum of training methods, designed to elicit optimum adaptive response appropriate for the sport or activity being trained for.

Key points:

  • No one system is emphasized to the exclusion of another.
  • No one method or physical quality becomes an end unto itself.
  • Each athlete is a case study of one.

In essence it is what good coaches have done for years, very basic, not about toys, all about refining movement.
