Functional Fitness

Functional fitness is all about building strength that you'll use in everyday life. It focuses on explosive, compound movements that build strength in your body's largest muscles like the legs, back and chest.




What constitutes functional fitness?

Functional fitness utilises explosive, compound movements to build full-body strength. Common accessories include kettlebells, slam balls and barbells to perform high-intensity exercises.


Is functional fitness suitable for beginners?

Some functional fitness workouts are suitable for beginners, but it's primarily aimed at people with an intermediate knowledge of strength training or above. This is because some of the movements require exact form to reduce the risk of injury, so it's suggested that people do their own research before following a functional training regime.
