FRISCO - Functional Fitness Training

Frisco Garage

The phrase “functional fitness training” may sound like a workout for professional athletes, but in fact it’s a training method that just about anyone can do and benefit from. Functional fitness exercises 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. For example, a squat is a functional exercise because it trains the muscles used when you rise up and down from a chair or pick up low objects. 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. Not only that, when using various muscles in the upper and lower body at the same time, functional fitness exercises also emphasize core stability. Through functional fitness training, you develop strength throughout your entire body.  

Functional fitness training does not have to be completed alone either. PWRFIT, our functional group training class at the Frisco YMCA, is the ideal way to increase your strength, speed, endurance, and overall fitness. These classes are made to suit different lifestyles and varying levels of fitness to offer a more personalized approach to our group fitness sessions with one-on-one coaching, goal setting and tailored session planning from our expert trainers. You will have the ease in knowing that our expert trainers have methodically laid out these classes in a way that makes it possible to attend classes six days per week.
