What Is Functional Fitness?

In the simplest explanation, functional fitness is a method of using functional movements to train for everyday life. In our gym, we combine that with a level of intensity to ensure we are achieving results and maintaining health.

So here’s the thing about Intensity…

In today’s fitness industry Intensity has simply become a buzzword. People use it to describe all sorts of workouts and claim that the more intense their particular program or system is, the better. I am here to clear the air a little bit around the ethos of Intensity.

  • The Romanian Deadlift is a variation of the Deadlift that will target and strengthen your butt and lower back. It's very similar to a conventional Deadlift, except the weight does not return to the ground in between reps. Here are a few tips to help get the most out of the Romanian Deadlift:

1. As always, keep your core tight.
2. Keep your knees "soft" throughout the movement.
3. Maintain a flat back by engaging your lats and back muscles.
4. Squeeze your butt at the top.
