Functional Training with Lindsay Crews
Monday, September 8th, 2:30pm
Functional training is a type of exercise that trains the body in order for individuals to perform activities of daily living with more ease and without risk of injuries. Rather than using a single muscle group, these exercises are intended to engage the stabilizers, peripheral muscles as well as the major muscle groups. If performed correctly, functional training can improve joint mobility and stability which in turn leads to a decreased risk of potential injury. This clinic will explore functional training exercises that work on flexibility, core, balance, strength and power, focusing on multiple movement planes.
