What is Corrective/Functional exercise?

Corrective and/or functional exercise is a type of exercise that works to correct alignment issues that a person may have.  It also helps recovery after an injury and trains the body to reduce the risk of re-injury and injury.  This type of exercise works to correct posture for optimal body movement.  Functional movement involves a person using their own body to maximize optimal movement.  Simply put: no machines are used when participating in these classes and because of this your body will learn to move in a more functional way.
