Functional Training Studio

The Functional Training Studio provides training activities for everyday lifestyles.

The Functional Training Studio is located on the 3rd floor of Woodruff Hall next to the racquetball court. See hours of operation.

Functional Fitness Training uses various exercises to train your muscles to work together to perform everyday movements in life and work. According to the Mayo Clinic, functional training simulates movements you might do at work, home or sports, to prepare them for these everyday tasks.

Functional training primarily involves strength training and core workouts without the use of weight machines. Many of the exercises can be done standing. In Adelphi’s functional training studio, the participants’ body weight provides the resistance in many of the workouts particularity in the suspension training exercises.
