The Power of Functional Training

Achieve Strength for Daily Living at 10GYM

Functional training is a cornerstone of fitness, and for good reason! Unlike traditional weightlifting and cardio workouts, functional training focuses on enhancing your ability to perform everyday movements with ease. You know what I’m talking about, right? Those daily tasks like lifting toddlers, carrying groceries bags in one trip, moving furniture, unloading pallets — even vacuuming. Any activities that rely on muscles and joints to work together as a unit of strength can lead to muscle fatigue or back strain if the core is weak.

Strengthening your core through functional training translates directly to better performance in both daily activities and sports performance. At 10GYM, we understand the incredible value of functional training, and our gyms in Oklahoma and Arkansas offer a range of equipment to help members accomplish more.

Functional training in our core and strength areas focuses on movement patterns that mimic real-life activities. By targeting multiple muscle groups and engaging stabilizing muscles, functional training enhances coordination, flexibility, and balance. These are essential components for preventing injury and maintaining overall well-being, especially as we age. Moreover, functional training can be tailored to individual needs, making it suitable for everyone from beginners to seasoned athletes.

At 10GYM, we provide a variety of equipment specifically designed for functional training. You’ll find kettlebells, resistance bands, medicine balls, plyo boxes, battle ropes, and TRX suspension trainers, all of which are the best tools for functional workouts. Kettlebells offer dynamic resistance for full-body movements, while resistance bands provide adjustable tension for exercises targeting different muscle groups. Medicine balls are perfect for explosive power training, and TRX suspension trainers enable bodyweight exercises that enhance strength and stability.

If you need assistance figuring out the best exercises and equipment to use, we have trainers on hand who will consider your goals and help you choose the best functional training exercises for you. They’ll even demonstrate proper form and technique to ensure you’re performing the task correctly and safely.

Whether you’re looking to enhance athletic performance, prevent injury, or improve core strength, functional training is the ticket! Just stick with it and watch yourself improve!
