What is Functional Training ⁉️⁉️

👉Functional Training aims to 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.
While using various muscles in the upper and lower body at the same time, functional training also emphasizes core stability. By training your muscles to work the way they do in everyday tasks, you prepare your body to perform well in a variety of common situations.

☑️Functional training can be done using resistance bands or dumbbells or perform bodyweight movements such as push-ups, sit-ups, planks, and squats. Exercises may also include aerobic exercises and weightlifting. Our trainers will tailor the optimum workout plan for your needs. 🏋️‍♀️🚴🤸

The Art Of Exercise

HOW EXERCISE LOWERS YOUR RISK OF STROKE⁉️

👉It is thought that exercising on a regular basis can reduce your chances of having a stroke by as much as 27%. High blood pressure and being overweight are two major contributing factors towards the cause of strokes, so addressing these by leading an active lifestyle ensures that your blood pressure is lowered and that you maintain a healthy weight too.

HOW MUCH EXERCISE SHOULD YOU DO⁉️

When it comes to exercise, you should aim to try and manage around 30 minutes of moderate exercise around five times a week. This doesn’t mean that you need to do 30 minutes at once, instead you can break it down into smaller blocks throughout the day.

The aim should be to do aerobic exercise of moderate intensity, so exercise such as brisk walking or cycling, that will leave you breathless, having increased your heart rate, is ideal.
