Functional Fitness is about exercising to improve your function - day to day life. It encompasses everyday movements, focusing on speed, agility, range of motion, core strength, balance and flexibility.
We also aim reinforce the 'FUN' in Functional!
Our body is a ‘system’ of many muscles all interelated. For example back ache can arise due to leg muscles. If we dont maintain whole body fitness we start restricting our movements, once we do that we enter a negative process of ‘deconditioning’. As we stop moving in particular ways this further impacts on other moves and when we cant move as much, we move less, put on weight and so it goes on…....
But you can change that.
Our bodies can respond and improve from exercise at any age!
A functional fitness session incorporates exercises to help you develop:
These are all important to help you with day to day life, with the bonus that you are able to do more on a day to day basis, using up calories, enjoying life!
Exercises can be progressed or regressed (made easier). We are all different, but wherever we start from we can improve.
And hopefully you will find its fun!
Every Class is a little different, we are not aligned to external company restrictions and can provide a varied programme to meet the individual needs of class members.
