Functional Fitness
Grades: 9-12
State Code: 08052A000

Functional fitness is a form of exercise using constantly varied functional movements performed at a high intensity.  Functional fitness exercises train your muscles to work together and prepare them for daily tasks by using common movements you might do at home, work or in sports. For example, a squat is a functional exercise because it trains the muscles used when you stand up and sit down in a chair or pick up a grocery bag from the ground. 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.  Exercises used in this class will include aerobic exercises, body weight movements and weightlifting. Dumbbells, medicine balls, kettlebells, and plyo boxes will all be utilized in this class.
