Training that is addressed with an approach to applicability to real life can really make a massive impact in your day to day life as it can make it easier to lift objects of all sorts and sizes, easier to maintain balance in a situation where most people would fall, make it easier to jump or step up onto high surfaces when no regular steps are available, or even make it easier to chase down you kid when you're walking with them and they suddenly bolt off.
The reality is that training that take a practical approach to fitness can really be useful. Not only that, but if the body is trained to perform well at the tasks it was designed to do, it should not be surprising that it will end up looking pretty darn good too as a natural side effect!
If you will simply focus intelligently on the function, you will be blown away at the appearance changes that can take place as well.
So make your body more useful in 2016 and see what a difference it makes in your life!
