What is functional conditioning?

A functional conditioning programme can benefit everybody. From the the highly trained athlete who wishes to improve his or her performance or rehabilitate an injury, through to those individuals who simply wish to play with their children pain free, Pilates could be the form of exercise you have been looking for.

Functional conditioning emphasizes movement which involves the interaction of multiple joints and multiple muscle groups. By dissipating forces across multiple joints, individual joints will be less stressed and at less risk of injury. By performing whole body movements like those performed during Pilates, more coordination is required and as a result more muscles are used and joint stability is increased.
