Chapter 1

What is Functional Training?

Movements that only use a single muscle in isolation are considered to be non-functional. Functional forms of movement always integrate several muscles and muscle groups simultaneously.- Michael Boyle

Functional training means that several muscles or muscle groups are trained simultaneously in one movement. This contrasts with traditional strength training, in which a large part of the exercises are often performed on machines and muscles or muscle groups are trained in isolation

Since human movements in everyday sports are almost never restricted to just one joint or muscle, it is advisable not only to target a specific muscle group but to train entire muscle chains consisting of numerous muscles as a whole. This is exactly where the considerations of the American physiotherapist Gary Gray come into play.

Functional training is all in one.

In contrast to regular strength training, or cardio training, functional training deliberately selects exercises from different training areas, because it is a cross-sport form of training that gives you the freedom to achieve your training goals. 

When is Functional Training right for you?

In conclusion, Functional Training is exactly right for you when:

  • You are looking for a form of training that is tailored to your needs and crosses all sports.
  • You want to make your training effective and varied.

Origin and Goals

Where does Functional Training come from and what is its goal? You will find all of that in our second chapter.

Have fun reading!

Originally, functional training was used in the rehabilitation of patients. Functional training became known in Germany mainly through the cooperation of Jürgen Klinsmann and the American fitness trainer Mark Verstegen. During the preparation phase for the 2006 World Cup, the new training methods could be discovered for the first time. The results speak for themselves today, at the latest after winning the World Cup in 2014.

 In competitive sports, functional training can also be used to prevent injuries. Specific strength and balance are developed, which are necessary to be protected as well as possible against injuries in extreme stress situations. In recent years, functional training has clearly gained in importance in the fitness industry. Even in popular and recreational sports, various training approaches are becoming increasingly popular.

What goals can you typically achieve through functional training?

Here is a small list:

  • Performance maintenance
  • Power recovery
  • Increase of the hull strength
  • Improvement of balance
  • Flexibility
  • Stabilization in general and of joints
  • Coordination and economization of movements
