30 Mar What Is a Functional Trainer?
A functional trainer is a group of exercises that helps you to train for everyday, normal activities. It allows men and women to train for everyday life without having to worry about injuries.
A functional trainer also gives you complete control over your body and the weights you use.
The Benefits Of Using Functional Training
You are spoiled for choice with a functional trainer. I do not say that lightly, either. You can exercise virtually every part of your body in one day, though I do not recommend that.
You can either do split training or full-body. You can give your arms, legs, chest, shoulders, and back a total workout.
The attachments you are going to get is like being in Paris for fashion week in the fall.
“The number of clothes you are going to get. I mean, you do not deserve them. You eat carbs for God’s sake”.

It might be a bit of an offset analogy, but it illustrates the point.
You are going to get things like ropes and pulleys. An example of being spoiled for choice is in training the biceps. You can do hammer curls with a rope. You can then move to bicep curls with a barbell.
You also can use a harness to enhance your workout. The trainer comes with different types of harnesses. You should ask your trainer if you are unsure of which harness to use first.
One issue that comes up at the gyms is safety. Some people shy away due to a lack of someone to spot them. Not everyone is going to be friendly to you in the gym. In a perfect world, maybe. We live in the real world. You are going to be hard-pressed to find someone willing to spot you unless you come with someone.
That is one of the great things about the functional trainer. You do not have to worry about being buried under a lot of weights. You do not have to worry about being stuck under a benchpress with no one willing to get you out.
Those are a few reasons why some people avoid the gym altogether.
All you do is stick a pin in the right weight section and go. Once again, you will have total control over everything. Do not worry about buying extra weights because you will not have to. The trainer comes with all the weight options you need.
You might have to pay more than $3,000 for one, but it is worth it. A functional trainer comes with everything you need. There is no need to go and buy additional weights. It is( basically)an all-in-one-gym without having to pay for the gym. It fits anywhere. It does not care what you are ability level is either.
This is a very cost-effective alternative to going to the gym and still get the same benefits.
