Benefits of Functional Fitness

Updated: Oct 25, 2022

Most people do not know but strength and conditioning is an important aspect of any athlete’s training.

Supplementing skill training with strength and conditioning is what allows an athlete to elevate themselves to a higher level because they will be able to execute skills and techniques more proficiently and effectively. However, a conventional “gym-goer” routine is not going to cut it.

When training martial arts, your body will be tested and pushed in ways that are totally different from lifting weights.

Functional training is more suitable if you are looking for a way to incorporate strength and conditioning into your training as these workout classes emphasize more on overall strength, speed, explosiveness, muscular endurance and cardiovascular endurance which are all important attributes if one is to become a better martial artist.
