Functional training isolates and engages your core muscles in a way that mimics real-life activities. This comprehensive approach enhances your core strength in ways traditional workouts can’t match.

The Functional Training Experience

Since you’re exploring the journey to a stronger core, it’s essential to understand what the functional training experience entails. From the structure of a class to the exercises you’ll perform, let’s dive into what you can expect. 


Warm-Up & Mobility 

Every functional training class kicks off with a warm-up. This phase is crucial to prepare your muscles and joints for the intensity of core-centric exercises that follow. Expect a combination of dynamic stretches and mobility work to get your body primed. 


Core-Centric Exercises 

The heart of functional training lies in core-centric exercises. These movements are designed to target your core muscles from various angles. You’ll find yourself engaged in a range of exercises, from planks to Russian twists, all contributing to a well-rounded core workout. 


Cool Down & Stretching 

As the class nears its end, a cool-down period follows the core-centric exercises. Cool-downs are essential for recovery and preventing muscle soreness. Expect gentle stretches and mobility work to help your body relax. 


Changing Routines 

Functional training classes frequently introduce new routines to prevent plateaus and keep your workouts exciting. This variety enhances your core strength, balance, and overall fitness. 


Tracking Your Gains 

Tracking your progress is integral to functional training. By measuring your strength and endurance gains over time, you’ll see the tangible results of your hard work, fuelling your motivation.
