What is Functional/Neuromotor Fitness?

By Leslie Stenger, M.S.

Functional training requires the body and mind to work together to link efficient and purposeful movement patterns resulting in a defined outcome/goal. Creating that link is the responsibility of the health and fitness professional and requires a specific level of rapport and trust between the health and fitness professional and client, patient, athlete. Health and fitness professionals need to understand human movement, how to develop programs, and how to instruct individuals in order to promote efficient and purposeful movement for the client, patient, athlete.
