With the arrival of the third age, the bodies of the elderly suffer several changes that degrade, such as loss of muscle tone, wear in the joints and that lead to lack of coordination, balance and
strength, thus hindering their daily activities, and may be injured and traumas lack these physical abilities. The "core" consists of approximately twenty-nine muscles, regions of the hip, abdomen and
lower back. These sets of muscles have important functions in support of charges and also of paramount importance in body stability. As its name suggests, functional training makes use of simple
movements and using as overload the body weight of the individual, such movements are similar to the movements of the elderly in their day to day, and for that reason the practice functional training,
the elderly will be better able to perform more safely and dexterity their daily business. Also it has an excellent state of health bio-psycho-social that the practice of any exercise can provide. The
aim of this study was to verify the importance of functional training to strengthen the "core" and improving the functional capacity of the elderly. This study was conducted through literature reviews
and scientific articles related to the benefits of functional training for seniors, importance of strengthening the "core," the importance of functional training benefit balance and posture, and
prevent possible injuries sustained by poor execution and possible falls. Specialized sites were used for academic research as Google Scholar and Scielo. The descriptors were used: functional
training, the elderly, postural balance and preventing falls. This topic related to functional training is coming to the rise because it is derived from the old methods of military training is always
evolving and adapting. The seven scientific articles were selected that best are suited to the theme. It comes to a conclusion that for older people to grow old with health and delaying the harm it
brings, they have to be performed in its independence in basic activities of daily life (BADL), always have to keep moving and exercising regularly and are well socially, carried out and with some
prominence and social evidence and that leave more excited and hopeful to face aging with health, independence in BADL and willingness to exercise regularly, if the elderly grow old physically
independent, psychologically and socially, the difficulties will be smaller in their day to day.
