We often get asked : What is Functional and Suspension Training ?

Functional fitness exercises train your muscles to work together and prepare them for daily tasks by simulating common movements you might do at home, at work or in sports. While using various muscles in the upper and lower body at the same time, functional fitness exercises also emphasize core stability. 

Suspension on the other hand is not only the ultimate Core fitness workout, it also offers a fantastic full body workout. Integrating both on and off strap movements,the Suspension training delivers a unique, high calorie burn workout. The sequencing also utilises functional training with push, pull, trunk and lower body methodology, working each side equally. This also allows for ample recovery time and faster results.
