What is Functional Training?

Functional training is designed to improve strength and efficiency of major human body movements along all three major planes of motion. This type of training differs from isolated movements by working the body as a whole, incorporating multiple muscle groups simultaneously, which translates more effectively to the movements that people perform every day. Functional training is effective in developing and improving core stability, balance, and coordination. For members looking for weight loss, working multiple muscle groups at once means more calories burned in a shorter time period. Athletes will see improvement by training the body in ways that directly transfer to the movements performed in competition.

Spartan Strength focuses on power and strength combined with cardio-respiratory in every training session. In life or athletics, the cardio-respiratory and neuromuscular systems are used simultaneously. Training that works on these systems together not only saves time, but also better prepares the body for life and for competition.
