Functional Fitness is real life. It’s running to the beach on a hot summers day without puffing, it’s unloading a trailer load of firewood without lower back pain, it’s joining the work social touch team without hesitation safe in the knowledge that you’re not going to collapse before half-time. At Southern Latitude we train you to smash your goals and get you in the greatest shape of your life through the process.
Classes are 1 hour consisting of a strength and a conditioning portion.
Strength is where we learn, improve and strengthen our skills. This can be classic lifts (squats, deadlift, presses), Olympic lifts (snatch, clean and jerk), gymnastic elements (handstands, pull ups, bodyweight work) and unconventional movements like tire drags, sled pushes and more!
Conditioning is where we get the lungs working. Workouts range from 3-30mins and are different everyday. We add elements like running, rowing and other fast paced bodyweight movements, combine them with weighted aspects like kettle bells and barbells to make you the fittest, strongest version of yourself.
We remove the excuses: “my dodgy back”, “my strength”, “my fitness…” We help you remove the barriers so you can do the things you want to do!
On Wednesday's we go big!
SoLatEnduro, or Enduro Wednesday as it's known to locals, is our big sweat out day! We swap out the strength portion and add extra mobility before a longer conditioning piece. We lessen the weights, increase the duration and have a midweek lung burner!
Humans are born to run so let’s get you moving. This running-based program is designed to massively increase your lung capacity to bring out your inner John Walker!
Whether you are new to lifting weights or a seasoned vet looking to take your lifting to a competitive level, strength club is for you!
