Functional Fitness – ShapeXchange

Back to Activities

Functional Fitness is exercise for real life, with an all round approach to allow you to move and be confident in your body – no matter what fitness level you’re starting from. Classes in Cottenham and Northstowe.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • it helps improve your mobility and body confidence;
  • it helps you to maintain a healthy weight, alongside a balanced diet;
  • it helps your mood by giving you a chance to move and exercise while having fun in a friendly and welcoming environment.

“I can thoroughly recommend training with Hektor at ShapeXchange. He is knowledgeable, personable and adaptable. He will help you to meet your fitness goals whatever they are and whatever level of fitness you have. Workouts are varied and targeted. You will be encouraged and well advised – what more can you ask from a trainer?”

What to expect

Led by Hektor – a knowledgeable and supportive exercise instructor and personal trainer – sessions last 45 minutes and focus on building strength, stamina, balance and flexibility.

Once everyone has arrived and said hello, sessions begin with a warm-up of light cardio and mobility drills, then move on to instruction and practice of a functional exercise (such as squats or crouches). You’ll then go through a segment of strength training exercises, followed by a short burst of cardio, finishing the session with a sequence of cool-down stretches and mobility drills.

Classes are suitable for adults of all levels of fitness and ability as movements and intensity levels can be modified to suit you.
