Group Fitness Classes,
Personal Training and
Membership options. The Centre has a functional training area.
Functional training is exercise aimed at developing the body to handle real life physical activities. To be functionally fit means you can balance, run, jump, lift and perform physical activities with endurance, stability, mobility and ease. A key component of functional fitness training is focused on building core strength and developing muscle groups to work together. This is in contrast to traditional gym equipment and exercises which focus on isolating and working on individual muscles.
