What the Funk?

Find out about us

The Funk is a collective term that refers to a class, community, racing team, and training methodology.

At the root of the Funk lies an area of study we created called Funkology. The curriculum for this is pretty straightforward as it asks but one question:

How can we keep this interesting?

To say that the answer is important is an understatement. Without constant “stimulation”, neither our will-power or discipline will be able to carry us as far as we need to go (and eventually, we’ll quit).

Through the lessons of the Funk, here are the 6 ways we prevent that from happening:

1. Add good, Positive people
2. Foster an Ego-less environment
3. Make it Challenging
4. Utilize a Variety of creative exercises and equipment
5. Adapt to life’s chaotic variables
6. Connect outside the workouts

Does it work? There is only one way to find out …

The Funk Class

This is what goes down

The Funk Class is tough without being too tough.

At our sessions, you should never feel like throwing up nor should you ever be so sore the next day that they hate life. We believe in only doing better than what we have done before. For some, the bar will be low and for others, not as much.

Since we are gym-less, the only machine we have at our disposable is the human body. We will have no choice but to become excellent at using this. A large focus of ours is on real-world strength, which more-or-less equates to Pushing, Pulling, and Holding Heavy Things. If our training goal could be summed up in one sentence, than this is it:

We want you to be able to lift a car off someone if you need to and be able to run to safety for when the aliens attack.

To add another flame to the question “Why are we doing this?”, we register for team events.

Meet the Funkologists

AKA Trainers

funkologists-levi-and-cara

Funkologists are the creators of this Funk.

They plan the workouts, they make sure we are moving correctly (and help us when we can’t), and they set up all the rest of the variables to make sure we have a “good, challenging, go tell your friends” session.

Funkologists are trainers but not all trainers are Funkologists (yeah, we’re different).

We’re not here to preach our beliefs nor are we interested in selling anything you don’t need or want. With the Funk, our solution is a more passive approach.We believe if we work hard and smile, that this positive energy will then infect you as well (and often it does).
