The evolution of functional fitness has changed the fitness business landscape. New functional gyms and concepts are emerging everyday. With its beginnings in the area of physical rehabilitation, this fitness concept has been embraced the world over to target core strength and improve ones ability to perform everyday activities. Moreover, sports such as Rugby, Football, Ahtletics, Hockey and Olympic Weightlifting all apply multidimensional functional fitness regimens to increase strength, stamina and fitness of athletes and practitioners.
Functional gyms should offer coaches, athletes and users access to the wide spectrum of strength and conditioning equipment designed to facilitate functional and sports-specific conditioning.
What does such a functional gym look like?
A wall-mounted or free-standing rig, with wall ball targets, is a must have to ensure a stable foundation. With this base, your box needs essentials like Olympic Weightlifting bars and bumper plates, J-cups and storage. Throw some GHDs, kettlebells, wall-balls, Air Bikes and Concept2 rowers into the mix and you are setting yourself up for some hardcore metcons!
Just don't forget the flooring. Quality gym flooring offers a buffer when weights get dropped and therefore prolong the life of your bumpers, bars and other conditioning equipment. Alternatively, you can look at a weightlifting platform to enhance the functional fitness experience.
