Being Strong For Life

Functional fitness has exploded in popularity with the rise of CrossFit, F45 and similar workouts, but it’s by no means a fad. These types of exercises develop the strength and mobility you need for daily activities like picking up heavy objects, putting something on a high shelf and even getting up from the floor.

As people age, they lose the ability to perform these everyday tasks due to decreased bone density and muscle mass and increased inflammation and joint degeneration, among other things, according to the Merck Manual.
