Fess up, going to the gym can be boring and you know it. Even on a good day, sometimes motivation fails in favour of sitting on your arse on the couch. Don’t beat yourself up; we’ve all been there. When facing that age old issue of getting back on that fitness horse, the best gyms in Brisbane know how to get you out of your ‘couch potato’ rut, and it’s not just about fancy equipment and an impressive fit out.
What started off as a boutique gym in the heart of Newstead, Function Well has evolved into a ‘one-stop-shop’, if you will, for progressive team workouts, and a go-to Brisbane gym destination for anyone wanting to take their fitness pledge seriously.
Focusing on members overall health and fitness goals, the Function Well team are unlike most other gyms, in that they have managed to create an environment which is neither intimidating nor run-of-the-mill, and makes coming to class actually fun. Function Well specialises in unique group training classes, and has a huge variety of classes on offer: Pilates to HIIT, 8-week body challenges, Spin classes and calisthenics; it’s the Brisbane gym equivalent of a kid in a (super healthy) candy store!
Function Well have also just opened their brand new Athletic Zone, a decked out fitness space open 24-hours a day for all you nuts out there who enjoy a 3am iron-pump, or for us time-poor office folk that can’t get to classes on time. In the Athletic Zone, it’s the spot to try your hand at anything from Cross Fit, to wrestling classes, to gymnastics!
Don’t know what to eat after a killer sesh? Function Well even has nutrition and lifestyle planning on site with specialists able to design healthy meal plans, so you can learn not to reach for that post-workout Mars bar ever again (we’re all guilty of that!)
Function Well has also been awarded best gym in Australia, so they definitely know what they’re doing. But, hey, no big deal.
The team at Function Well are like that friend that eggs you on when you’re not in the gym sort of mood, and celebrates your achievements. If any of you were thinking of working on your year-round beach bod, this Brisbane gym is a bloody good place to start.
