What’s Functional Training all about?
Functional Training sets you up for daily life. In our busy day-to-day lives’ we perform functional movements in almost every activity we do – from getting in and out of the car; to climbing the stairs; to carrying heavy shopping bags – and Functional Training is a fantastic way to condition; strengthen; prolong our bodies’; and prepare us for life.
Our Group Functional Training (GFT) experience breaks away from the long-standing norm of repetitive, mindless workouts. Forget about the days of flogging yourself to death on a treadmill or cross trainer; or forcing out set-after-set of the same, boring, dumbbell or barbell exercises. Our GFT sessions will have you hooked and returning for more!
While a traditional gym floor setup will always have a place, gym equipment usually has a sole purpose – to target a specific muscle. There are far more engaging ways to train your body from top-to-toe and that way is in our Group Functional Training studio.
Our GFT studio boasts a variety of strength and cardio equipment, designed to deliver a full body workout. Our dedicated trainers are there to coach you every step of the way, to ensure you get the most out of each session.
Functional for Sport
Functional workouts aren’t just about helping with everyday body conditioning; mobility; and strength – our GFT workouts are a great way to compliment your training for sport. A simple exercise, like a sandbag walking lunge, can benefit a marathon runner or a rugby player. This exaggerated striding action, can develop running power, and dodging or side stepping skills.
Release your inner WARRIOR.
The team at King Street Gym have transformed the space into the ultimate functional training arena. Our trainers have developed a range of GFT classes to kick off our grand opening in a powerful fashion.

Using a variety of weighted equipment, such as sandbags and kettlebells, as our trainers lead you through this 30-minute workout that will leave you feeling pumped, like a warrior.
Trainer, Ellis Spencer, said: “All of our FGT workouts are suitable for anyone and everyone. Before you tell yourself ‘I’m not fit enough to do classes’, let me tell you that you absolutely are!”
“How do you think you get fit? By coming to the classes! On your first visit, just let the trainer know that it’s your first time and they will take good care of you. It’s our job to make sure you enjoy the class; feel the benefit of it; and keep coming back, so you achieve your goals.”
“Trust me, we put the fun in FUNctional!”
