But what is functional movement?
Functional movement involves real world situations. A great example of this is an exercise called the squat as it represents standing up. Without the ability to squat, how else could you get off the toilet!? Similarly, think about the Deadlift; without it, how else would you pick up this week’s grocery shopping!?
Functional Training is a full body conditioning programme for any age and ability. The workouts are scalable to suit each individual and their own personal goals as the community brings together a wide range of people. Our workouts are constantly varied and therefore you will never do two days the same, two weeks the same or two months the same. Not only does this keep things interesting, but it also increases the impact of each workout.

When I joined Functional Fitness New Plymouth I had not been in the city for very long and did not know anyone. That changed at CFNP I was pleasantly surprised at how friendly and welcoming all the members were.
When I first started I was very anxious each class I went to in case I couldn’t do the movements but with kind and encouraging coaches, scaled movements and support of other members I have achieved goals I never thought possible. There are still a few yet to obtain.
I am an older person so was hard for me to throw myself into this type of exercise but it was the best decision I have made. I have got fitter and stronger and have done a number of personal bests whilst training there. I can now even jog a bit faster. I Highly recommend FFNP as a friendly welcoming place to train, especially for older persons.
Since joining FFNP late last year, I have loved every minute and have changed as a person both physically and mentally. After playing competitive sport growing up, I never thought I would join a gym but it has helped me gain strength and confidence I never thought I had the ability of. I’ve also been grateful to have met some amazing, like minded now called best friends, always there for you no matter what & making it a fun happy environment to be in. Cannot go past our coaches, they are always there to help motivate and inspire us with their depth of knowledge within CrossFit & just a positive influence in our daily lives wanting the best out of everyone!
Very proud to be apart of FFNP & now 2nd family ❤️
I was your typical girl going to gym to scared to ask for help or to lift weights for the fear of becoming too ‘bulky’ so sticking to cardio equipment became a norm. A year of this became boring so I stopped exercise altogether. It was Lateisha that introduced me to Functional Fitness New Plymouth and all I can say is I wish I had joined sooner.
FFNP is a family like no other! We celebrate weaknesses, triumphs, the good and the bad. FFNP has taught me valuable life skills and an out look on positive body image, if anything I can’t wait for my muscles to become bigger as that’s apart of the progress. Physically I am stronger and have longer endurance, but more than anything my mental wellbeing has been the biggest factor of improvement and because of that I am forever grateful to my community!
I started at CrossFit New Plymouth around 3 years ago, where I did the high school classes. As time went on I wanted to get more involved in CrossFit, so I said goodbye to high school classes and started the “big scary adult” classes! Turns out the weren’t as scary as I thought and they welcomed me with warm arms. CFNP is a community that is built around positivity and growth. This has been an environment that has allowed me to thrive physically and mental. The coaches at CFNP has always provided what I need, whether that be advice, tips, or shouting positive words at me throughout a tough workout.
Honestly I wouldn’t be the strong capable person I am today without CrossFit New Plymouth.
” I remember clearly walking into FFNP for the first time and thinking “what am I doing here??”. Even sharper however is the memory of walking out at the end of that class and knowing for sure Id be back.
I’ve completely changed my attitude towards fitness since I started here. The coaches are professional and knowledgeable, the workouts are challenging but achievable for any level of fitness and the people I get to workout with everyday are some of the best people I know.
Through Crossfit Im fitter, stronger and healthier at (nearly) 40 than I was in my twenties.
Above all though it’s the genuine sense of community that makes FFNP great. Everyone’s here for the same reason, to work hard and have a great time doing it.”
