Functional Fitness

The loft Ibiza

In these sessions we combine the best functional exercise techniques existing in the fitness industry. The fundamental objective is to develop the basic physical abilities of the human being based on improving their physical form and quality of life. These classes are held in the “Open Space” room of our studio and we use bosu materials, steps, Suspension Training swings, dumbbells, Olympic discs, elastic bands, medicine balls, loops, sliders, fitballs, etc. These techniques will adapt to the advances in the fitness market to work our body in an integral way.

HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)

Training sessions of short duration and high intensity, alternating intervals at high pace with others at a moderate pace with a dynamic or static recovery. The beneficial effects in the short-medium term are, mainly:
Decreased levels of LDL (“bad” cholesterol).
Increase in HDL (“good” cholesterol) levels.
Decreased blood pressure.
Increase in insulin production (beneficial for diabetic patients of type I).
Improvement of VO2 max. (improvement of cardiorespiratory capacity).
Maintenance and / or slight increase in the percentage of muscle mass.
Increase in testosterone production.
Stimulation of the production of growth hormone.
Increase in basal metabolism (“energy consumed by the body in a resting state”).
Decrease in the percentage of body fat.
The success of this activity lies in generating a large caloric expenditure. But we are not only talking about the caloric expenditure produced during the exercise itself. With HIIT, the EPOC (Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption) effect is achieved. In other words, with HIIT the body is subjected to considerable stress, which generates an oxygen debt in the following hours and the body enters a recovery process. This recovery process
generates a caloric expenditure that can be extended up to 48 hours after the exercise.
And guess where those calories come from that the body demands? Of the direct oxidation of free fatty acids.
• Do you want to lose weight?
• Do you want to improve your cardiovascular resistance?
• Do you want to feel more active?
If you answered “YES” to one of these questions, this activity is for you.

HIFT (High Intensity Functional Training)

Training performed at high intensities where cardiovascular and strength exercises are mixed. It is important to emphasize that this type of training prioritizes the integral work of the body using the largest possible number of muscle groups, making HIFT an activity of great caloric expenditure and a great functional work. Different load or resistance elements are used: free weights, discs, medical balls, rubber bands, etc.
• Do you want to lose weight?
• Do you want to gain strength and increase your muscle tone?
• Do you want to feel more agile, be more coordinated and have better balance?
• Do you want to improve your functionality?
If you answered “YES” to one of these questions this activity is for you.


Chronic pain, lack of mobility, depression and lack of vitality are the symptoms of the Human Zoo Syndrome. The conditions of modern society have led us to consider this as ‘normal’.
Fitness is not limited to strength, cardiovascular endurance and stretching. In this technique, fitness is the practical ability to physically perform in the ‘real world’. When we are older we may not be able to lift as much weight or run as fast as when we were young, but we should seriously consider that the simplest movement skills will define our level of physical autonomy at older ages.
Could it be that the relationship between different parts of our body is more complex than we think, and that we should not train muscles but movements?
The main element of load or resistance that is used in this activity is the body weight itself.

• Do you want to feel stronger and increase your muscle tone?
• Do you want to have more control over your body?
• Do you want to have more coordination, balance and be more agile?
• Do you want to improve your functionality?

If you answered ‘YES’ to one of these questions, this activity is for you.


This type of training is based on slow movements and positions held in a fluid way to work the body globally, integrating different muscle chains at the same time. Control and balance are the key. The most important objective of these sessions is to work the fascial system. What does this mean? The human body is wrapped, connected and communicated by means of a connective tissue that has been called “fascial system”, this tissue, contrary to what was believed until a few years ago, has been shown to form an active, resistant and present throughout the body, also has a great transcendence in fundamental processes of body metabolism.

• Do you want to feel more mobile and gain flexibility?
• Do you want to improve your posture?
• Do you want to improve your balance?
• Do you want to relieve tension or pain from specific points in your body?

If you answered “YES” to one of these questions, this activity is for you.
