Cape Town is a vibrant city – these top three functional training gyms contribute to that glow!
Exercise has an incredibly postive impact on your quality of life. The glow of good health can not be faked – and so it is important to find a community that allows you to work on yourself within an environment that is challenging, fun and keeps you going back for more. Here is our list of the top three functional training gyms in Cape Town.
Number One – 360 Specialized Training
Firstly – 360 Specialized training comes in at number one. 360 has a soft spot in both of our hearts which has led to a hard abdomen (no kidding – this gym knows how to toughen you up). They offer a variety of classes such as warrior workout, boxfit, cardio blast and kettlebell. The gym is based in Foreshore and owned by Chris Walsh. Our favourite thing about the gym is the diverse classes that are specialised in skill.
Number Two – The Hype
We’ve had many fond memories of burning abs, sweaty foreheads and gangster rap at this upbeat gym. The Hype is based in Cape Town CBD and owned by Justin Radford whose energetic attitude makes you work harder than you thought you could. Our favourite thing about the hype is the heated boxing classes and the killer ab sessions.
Number Three – FitStrong
Focused on obstacle course and functional training, FitStrong services the Durbanville area. The gym is owned by two professionals in the field, Trevor and Paul Lagerwey, who don’t take quitting for an answer. They have recently expanded to include a Boxfit section – making their gym the perfect versatile training centre. Our favourite thing about FitStrong is their outdoor obstacle course area.
These are our favourite places to train. Let us know if you have any favourite spots!
