Definition of Functional Fitness Exercise:
1)Â Â Â Â Â Focus on building a body, mind, and spirit capable of feeling empowered while engaging in real-lifeÂ events, positions, activities, and situationsâ¦ Â
Â 2)Â Â Â Â Â â¦not just exercising your physical body, butÂ challenging your thoughts, emotional capabilities, and spiritual qualities (gratitude, generosity, compassion, empathy, etc.) as well.
Using this definition of Functional Fitness, we can add more meaning to our daily activities, routines, and workouts; we can now include positive self-talk to improve our mental/emotional, spiritual health. Incorporating conscious mental statements into some of our daily routines and perhaps mundane activities (ex: washing dishes; doing laundry, showering) will improve our lives exponentially. Embracing functional fitness as an all-encompassing practice elevates usÂ to a place of optimal health: mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
