You’re always moving, so why not move better?

How does the Functional Movement Challenge work?

From the gym to your everyday life, discover how 6 weeks of functional training will help you move better in everything you do.

  • 4 unique 30-minute workouts each week, fully coached by experts you’ll love.
  • Exercises that combine foundational movements – such as squats, pushes and pulls – into flows that move your body in all directions.
  • Functional tests throughout the program to help you find your baseline, set goals for improvement and measure results.
  • Workouts are targeted at Intermediate-Advanced level. If you’re a Beginner, pace yourself and know your limits.
  • 3 variations of every exercise – the base exercise, a regression and a progression.

What results will I get from the Functional Movement Challenge?

Over the course of 6 weeks with this program you will:

  • Increase mobility and flexibility by mastering natural movement patterns and improving the range of motion you’re able to comfortably move through.
  • Burn fat and boost cardio fitness.
  • Get stronger and tone your body by performing compound exercises that recruit multiple muscle groups to build strength efficiently.
  • Prevent injury by building a strong and mobile body.
  • Improve your stability and balance. Unilateral work (exercising one side at a time) will help you to identify and work on imbalances.
  • See tangible progress week by week with functional tests – giving you a real-time picture of how your skills are coming together!
