Functional fitness is all about utilizing natural movements the human body might perform on a daily basis. Pushing, pulling, squatting, lifting, and jumping are all ways we naturally use our bodies to attain greater strength, speed, agility, and coordination. Barbells, kettlebells, dumbbells, medicine balls, resistance bands, plyo-boxes, and more are just some of the tools we use to optimize your body’s natural, functional movement.
