It is an invaluable rehab tool for the Flexa Physio team but also allows our members to experience the latest in functional training in an exclusive environment.
Sport is essentially rehearsing movement. If you’re moving incorrectly then you are rehearsing incorrect movement that may result in pain, tightness, imbalances and poor performance. Functional training is about making your body work the way it was designed to function in the three planes of motion.
Conventional training with standard gym equipment restricts movement to a single plane of motion which is an unnatural form of movement for the body and may potentially lead to faulty movement patterns and imbalances. Life is unpredictable and unstable. So why would you develop your training using stable and predictable routines and equipment?
Functional exercises are designed to improve movement proficiency and are multi joint, multi muscle exercises that utilise all three planes of motion promoting stability, mobility, and flexibility while teaching correct movement patterns with full range of motion and muscle activation.
