I have never done functional training , what should I expect?
We run, jump, pull, push, climb, squat, lift, press, carry, throw and catch. We believe in utilizing our entire body. We have also been known to have a little fun. We live by the motto work hard, play hard! A typical Functional training programs starts with a warm-up followed by a WOD (workout of the day) which is led by a certified Welliesta’s coach. You can expect to be at the gym for about 1 hour depending on the workout.
