Although it has become the buzzword in the health and wellness programs, Functional Fitness is a very important part of exercise and daily life, especially for seniors.
What is Functional Fitness? It refers to exercise that helps us with everyday activities, like getting up off the floor, carrying heavy objects and putting something up on a shelf.
By strengthening the muscles in the same way we would need to use them for certain tasks, it reduces our risk of injury and increases our quality of life. We can go throughout our day without worrying about straining or pulling something.
