Balance and Coordination

One very important component to functional fitness is balance and coordination. Exercisers to developed better balance and coordination can help all groups of your body work together and better develop functional fitness.

Try this workout:

On a box that is 6 to 10 inches off the ground stand with one leg dangling off the side.  Squat down as low as you can but don't let the leg touch the ground.  Kick it back more to get further down without touching the ground.  After you feel like you have your balance, try adding speed.  How fast can you go and still have control?
