About Functional Strength and Resistance Training

In his Blog, Dr. Cedric Bryant, President and Chief Science Officer of the American Council on Exercise (ACE) explains that “functional strength training involves performing work against resistance in such a manner that the improvements in strength directly enhance the performance of movements so that an individual's activities of daily living are easier to perform.” May 11, 2011

Any strength or resistance training programme must, therefore, fulfil some desired end. Any Fitness Professional worth their salt will also ensure that the programme lays a solid foundation for progression.

Whether it be shaving seconds off the medley relay or being alert enough to actively listen to patients all day and your 5 year old all evening, a well designed functional strength training programme must make your client’s day to day function easier.

Take the 2hrs Functional Strength and Resistance Training Workshop, Saturday 7 December 2019, to learn how to create effective programmes. You will perform all the exercises under the watchful eye of a highly qualified, very experienced Master Trainer.
