Functional Training

As humans, we perform a wide range of movement activities such as walking,
jogging, running, lifting, pushing, pulling, bending, twisting, lunging and climbing.
All of these movements involve smooth rhythmic motions.

Functional strength training involves performing work against resistance in such
a manner that the improvements in strength directly enhance the performance of
movements so that an individual's activities of daily living are easier to perform.
The primary goal of functional training is to transfer the improvements in strength
achieved in one movement to enhancing the performance of another movement
by affecting the entire neuromuscular system.


Functional Movement Screen Assessment

This is an assessment tool that assesses movement patterns that are potential
risks for injury. The screen puts the client through some basic movement patterns,
and they are measure to determine if the client has any challenges with range of
motion, strength, flexibility or asymmetry.
