Athletes and ordinary people use functional training to enable them to perform better dayin-day-out. There are many beneﬁts to functional training - co ordination, balance and agility, as well as gaining strength and increasing power. Most of these exercises can be done using your own body weight, dumbbells or even a stability ball. Functional training uses more energy and burns more calories than using weighted machines, providing a greater transfer of gains enabling you to do what and love to do without difﬁculties.
Being ﬂexible has its advantages not only for those who play a sport, but also in everyday life. Your will feel a lot better when you have greater ﬂexibility. Being more ﬂexible will help you avoid any injuries that are likely to occur if you are tight. Many people spend a majority of their day sitting behind a desk. Without adequate stretching and movement you decrease your natural ﬂexibility as well as muscle imbalance. Many beneﬁts are achieved through stretching including decreased muscle soreness, increased tissue relaxation, improved blood circulation and more ﬂuidity in your movement. You will be sitting up straighter, walking taller, feeling lighter and stronger.
As we get older, we move less. With a decline in exercise to keep us functional, our range of motion becomes smaller, leading to poorer posture. Postural alignment begins to collapse as muscles become stiff and weaken. With correct stretching and strengthening exercises, core muscle groups are targeted. When muscles are stretched we become more ﬂexible and when muscles are used we become stronger. As our alignment improves we feel better and we are able to move more.
The term core is used to outline the muscles that control the spine, in particular your abdominals, waist and lower back. The core consists of many different muscles that stabilize the spine and pelvis and run the entire length of the torso. Core conditioning requires the brain and deep muscles to work ﬁred up in order to create spinal and pelvic stability. When these muscles are ﬁred up, they stabilize the spine, pelvis and shoulder girdle, creating a solid base of support that as a result, generates powerful movements of Programsextremities.
A strong core reduces back pain, improves athletic performance and also improves postural imbalances.
Following an injury, it is necessary that joints return to their proper alignment. This is done through a good rehabilitation program that includes treatment and activities that restore the body back to its former condition. There are particular exercises that are speciﬁed in order to improved function in order for proper alignment and joint stability to occur.
Rehabilitation exercises that take place target balance and range of motion, ﬂexibility, strength and endurance.
Circuit / Group Training
Circuit / Group Training combines body weight and training exercises that incorporate a large cardiovascular component. It's an enjoyable way of training and a highly effective way of getting ﬁt. It increases cardiovascular ability, strength, endurance and fat burning ability and sports performance.
Circuit training can be done in your own home, backyard or in a park. Training can also be done one-on-one or in a group. Group training is not only fun but pushes you to work that extra bit harder due to the competition around you.

After giving birth, there are many physical outcomes that may occur. Certain outcomes include, sleep deprivation, lack of time, breastfeeding, stress and low self esteem.
