A Functional Strength class generally starts with a whole-body warm-up that will often include some light jogging on the spot, agility exercises, squats, star jumps and more.
Once you are warm and ready to go you will be shown any one of a number of different kettlebell, bodyweight or plyometric exercises. Your coach will demonstrate the movements and give you feedback and pointers as you follow along.
Most exercises you will be shown are compound exercises (ie. working more than one muscle group at once) as this is generally how we apply our strength outside of the gym. Progression in these movements will come from pushing yourself to work with higher weights, more reps, longer times, etc.
Functional Strength classes are programmed to hit different muscle groups and different aspects of physical fitness every session. The classes are intended to be a complete strength and cardio training program and for recovery purposes, it is not recommended that you do weights outside of these classes if you are attending them regularly.
