Functional Fitness: What Does It Mean to You?

My idea of functional fitness, above. My hair and the dishes say "tx" for dragging it into the house.

Even if you have a desk job, your daily life requires that you be physically competent. Maybe you've got little ones to run after, pick up etc. Maybe you're the "mom" of a fur baby who needs your help getting around. Maybe you're a DIY-er who loves working on refinishing furniture pieces or building things. Or maybe you just don't want to lose time taking extra trips in from the car if you can't carry a lot at one time.

That's the "fun" in functional fitness---being empowered to do more in your day to day life with ease. It's also a great way to mentally reset your training goals if you're hitting a rut. Try one workout a week that's designed around a functional goal. Working on a big painting project? Try some upper-body strength work. Planning a long hike on the weekend? Toss in some extra walking lunges and squats or add in some single leg deadlifts to target your lower body and stabilize your ankles.
