Our Functional Fitness Classes are carefully crafted to build strength, mobility, stability, power, coordination and balance. Classes are classified as moderate intensity so suitable for all ages and fitness levels.
Exercises are sequenced carefully so that functional capacity is developed throughout the session and builds over time. Classes are fun, but at the same time challenging enough to get each participant progressing towards their goals.
All classes are held outdoors so as to enable us to use the environment to get best results.
The simple answer to this one is everyone. If you want to lead a full and active life then the functional fitness classes will help you achieve that. Class intensity level is classified as moderate so would be appropriate for the majority of the population. If you do have any concerns then please contact us.
We believe that variety is the spice of life therefore classes will vary from week to week. We will typically focus on different areas of functionality and then look at how we might improve them. Classes are not stationary in that we do not stay in any one place throughout the session. Exercises will be interspersed with walking/ambulating between exercise stations. Although session themes change frequently we do operate around a scientifically proven framework.
All classes are held outdoors and on Clifton Downs. The meeting point for daytime classes is outside Cafe Retreat and for evening classes we will meet half way down Ladies Mile. For either class please look out for the Exercise Bristol Flag Banner.
Yes all classes will run as normal even when it rains. We do suggest however you wear appropriate clothing for the weather at the time? If there is a risk of lightning or very high winds we will not run sessions until the risk has passed.
There is no need to bring anything with you in particular. However if the weather is very hot you might find bringing a water bottle with you might be a good idea (particularly if you sweat heavily when exercising).
