Functional training is the latest craze in the fitness industry. The principle behind it is that you’re simulating common movements you might do at home, at work or in sport. While using various muscles in the upper and lower body at the same time, functional fitness also emphasises core stability. The great thing about functional training is that it is adaptable at any level and can be used for fun and effective workouts for beginners right up to elite athletes alike. It’s also really sociable! The new functional frames and mobile functional equipment zones allow groups of people to all work out together creating a fun and dynamic environment to keep people motivated.
Helen Barnett, Chief Executive of Active Luton, comments: “The feedback from our customers about our new functional training zones has been excellent and our gym instructors are thoroughly enjoying helping customers of all ages and abilities incorporate the new equipment into their workouts. Whether you’re training for a triathlon, or if you suffer from a long-term condition and are working to regain strength with our Health & Wellbeing team, there’s something for everyone.”
Cllr Rachel Hopkins, Portfolio Holder for public health, said: “It can be difficult to be motivated to stay active over the winter months but it’s one of the most important times of the year to prioritise your health. With winter bugs and flu about, staying active and eating well can help you stay healthy. And as the weather begins to get colder, it’s a great time to head inside to the gym, or for a swim!”
