Fitness Experts

The blog by aerobis is supported by a big number of fitness experts that come from different areas of the fitness business. While some might be kettlebell enthusiasts others are CrossFit coaches or work as coaches with professional athletes. What we have in common is the conviction that functional training is an effective and natural form of training that influences our training and those of our customers in a variety of ways.

Functional training is a complex topic

Since functional training is complex and has many facets we need the FuncMove fitness experts to shed light on this topic from as many angles as possible. But our experts not only write about functional training but training in general and everything that comes with it: sport during pregnancy, outdoor training and the positive effects on your organism, and the false prejudice that women better not train with weights in order to not jeopardize their womanliness.
