Functional fitness is not necessarily important for weight loss, being functionally fit involved the body working as a whole, a strong kinetic chain, you are only as strong as your weakest link. Functional fitness can make you more efficient in your sport as well as in your daily life, minimizing both sports and faulty postural problems. A strong fit body performs better, recovers well, and is able to perform over and over again, i guess that where the body shape, fat loss and a change in weight come into play.
Hi Gymjunkie; Thanks for reply which is great respond. Functional training what is it ? all trainers and people talking about. Something have to be functional yes / no Functional training; Reaching , pushing, pulling, lifting, turning something all functional isnt it ? What we do as fitness profesionals make think harder and harder so what make people trainer how we are doing it ? intensity / resting / how much carido should i do / what heart rate should be ... I do recently training with Car tyres which give me a good grip, activate my core, improve my balance I think this is functional; doing one specific movement but engaging whole body part ( tendon - ligaments - joints - muscle and cardio respiratory system.
