Our functional kit can simulate and strengthen the muscles linked to the movements you use in your daily life, making it easier for you to bend down to pick up your children, carry your shopping or swinging a golf club.
Using the functional equipment gives you a limitless amount of options meaning you train your entire body through 360 degrees which is a huge contributor to a strong and functioning core. This is unlike traditional gym equipment which can be restrictive meaning problem areas are sometimes missed. Functional based training can lend itself to short, medium and long-time domains at relative intensities with no real need to train specific muscle groups meaning your training can be constantly varied. This type of training will forge a broad fitness ensuring you can build on more than one area.
