Functional Movement

Vastly reduce the the risk of injury

Train your muscles to work together

Functional movement exercises train your muscles to work together and prepare them for daily tasks by simulating common movements you might do at home, at work or in sports. We look at using YOU as the machine, not the other way around! Here at Equation Fitness we are passionate about functional movement training as we believe it is a sure fire way to achieve a healthy lifestyle.

Functional movement means using your body on its own as you would in everyday life (ie lunging, squatting and reaching… not laid on a bench!). Using the main muscle groups in functional movement training requires a greater degree of recruitment from each muscle group and really works the core.

You can vastly reduce risk of injury when you improve the ability to control your own body weight through numerous patterns independently without being fixed within a machine. PIcking up heavy objects at work, carrying shopping bags or executing tackles in rugby are all activities which rely on our ability to activate certain muscles groups and engage the midline. By working on a functional movement programme you will see huge benefits in your body health and day-to-day life.
