Firstly, let’s explain what Functional Training is. The idea of Functional Training is that you’re essentially working out using movements that you would use in everyday life.
Think lifting the shopping, running up the stairs, stretching up to reach a cupboard, and so on and so forth.
Used in the correct way, functional training will benefit core stability and joint mobility. Therapists often use Functional Training for patients, as specific programmes can be designed relevant to a person’s level of fitness and their targets.
For athletes and fitness enthusiasts, Functional Training can be used to build endurance, strength and flexibility.
A Functional Training Rig includes areas such as stretching stations, boxing stations, Half Power Racks, adjustable pulleys, and rebounder stations. On top of that, tricep dips, steps, and Olympic bar pivot mounts can all be included.
Your own personal Functional Training Rig will set you back over £4,000, but you might want to consider using one at your local gym to target specific areas. Weights, kettlebells, ball skills, hanging bars, pulleys and aerobic exercises can all be facilitated using this multi-functional bit of kit. It’s vast enough to allow several people to have a go all at once, so it really is a bit like visiting the park.
Who knew you could have so much fun working out!
I also don't think anyone would buy their own - who has that much space! Here's to the gym!
Can't imagine anyone would buy their own at that price. Think I'll stick to the gym.
this looks fun! Time to see if there is one near me.
When I first saw The Rig land at our gym I couldn't see the point of it but after being shown exactly what you can do with it I was well impressed and I try to have a couple of sessions a week on it. Functional Training really works.
