The more you train functionally, the better you’ll become at working your entire body as one system.

Functional training also gives you an excellent kinesthetic awareness (awareness of how your body moves) and teaches you how to move safely.

All of these skills are pretty important in everyday life and in the gym, allowing us to move purposefully and confidently and helping us stay sturdy, strong, and safe.

  What You Will Learn

You’ll get started with a mobility warm up, for your hips, shoulders, ankles, and prepare those muscles for the moves that come next. You’ll focus on bodyweight and resistance exercises with core-dominance, whilst getting your heart rate up to finish your workout strong. Cross-body work is huge in every part of the workout. You will train your body how to move functionally— movement patterns that you’ll do in everyday life, not just at the gym. This short course is taught over 6 weeks (1 hour duration). Classes are held in the Cornwall College Camborne Sports Facility.

I originally enrolled on the Level 2 course purely to gain the qualification to become a reputable health and fitness journalist (after graduating with a journalism degree). But the course was so interesting, informative and fun that I couldn't resist staying on to complete the Level 3! I didn't even want to leave after that!

The qualifications enabled me to spend a few years working as a personal trainer and gym instructor alongside my writing work. And I know for certain that the knowledge and experience I gained from both the courses and my time spent working as a trainer has enabled me to write content at a much higher standard. It's also helped when interviewing high-level fitness professionals for articles as I can actually understand what they're talking about, which has given me a distinct advantage when pitching articles within the fitness industry. The knowledge has also improved my own training, so it's a win-win!
