HINTS FOR YOUR FUNCTIONAL TRAINING AT HOME

  • Put your jewelery and possibly your glasses aside before training.
  • Wear sturdy shoes during training to have a stable footing and good grip.
  • Move objects to a side in the room where you want to train so that you have enough space for exercising.
  • Always train according to your level of performance. Do not overdo yourself. It always applies: quality over quantity!
  • Drink enough water during exercise.
