Our Core24 Health CLub functional training studios are located at our Frankston, Frankston South, Carrum Downs, Mornington and Somerville Clubs.
Functional training emphasizes movements that mimic real-life activities and improve overall functional fitness. Functional training involves multi-joint movements that engage multiple muscle groups and require coordination, stability, and mobility.
Our functional training studio has a variety of equipment and training tools that allow for dynamic, full-body workouts. Including free weights, resistance bands, stability balls, medicine balls, TRX suspension trainers, kettlebells, and other functional fitness equipment. Access areas for strength training, cardiovascular exercises, and mobility exercises.
Functional Training is designed to improve functional fitness, which includes strength, endurance, balance, stability, flexibility, and mobility.
Functional training focuses on movements that mimic real-life activities, such as lifting, pushing, pulling, squatting, bending, and rotating. By training these movements, functional training helps to improve overall functional fitness, which includes strength, endurance, balance, stability, flexibility, and mobility. This can translate into improved performance in daily activities, sports, and other physical activities.
Functional training typically involves multi-joint exercises that engage multiple muscle groups simultaneously. This can result in improved muscle strength and endurance, particularly in the core, hips, glutes, back, and upper body. Strengthening these muscles can improve overall functional fitness, posture, and stability.
Functional training often incorporates exercises that require a good range of motion in the joints, helping to improve flexibility and mobility. By regularly engaging in functional training exercises, individuals can improve joint flexibility, muscle elasticity, and overall mobility, which can reduce the risk of injuries and improve performance in daily activities and sports.
Functional training exercises often require balance and stability, as they engage the core and other stabilizing muscles. Regular practice of functional training can improve balance and stability, which are essential for everyday movements and activities, as well as for fall prevention in older adults.
Many functional training exercises involve cardiovascular elements, such as dynamic movements, plyometrics, and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) techniques. This can result in improved cardiovascular fitness, including increased heart rate, improved endurance, and better aerobic capacity.
Functional training exercises are typically high-intensity and involve multiple muscle groups, which can result in increased calorie burn during and after the workout. This can aid in weight management and contribute to a healthy body composition.
Functional training focuses on improving overall functional fitness, which includes strength, flexibility, mobility, balance, and stability. By addressing these components of fitness, functional training can help to reduce the risk of injuries and improve overall movement mechanics, which is particularly beneficial in preventing common injuries related to everyday activities or sports.
Functional training exercises can be modified and adapted to suit different fitness levels, abilities, and goals. This makes it accessible to individuals of various fitness levels, from beginners to advanced exercisers, and allows for progression as individuals get stronger and fitter.
Functional training workouts are typically designed to be efficient and effective, as they engage multiple muscle groups and movements in a single workout session. This makes functional training a time-effective option for individuals with busy schedules who are looking for effective and efficient workouts.
Functional training exercises are often dynamic, challenging, and varied, which can make the workouts fun and engaging. The use of different equipment and movements can keep workouts interesting and motivating, helping individuals to stick to their fitness routine and enjoy the process.
