SoCo Performance has launched four new different types of functional fitness classes at their clinic in Leopardstown.

David Clancy (insta: @dclancyphysio), will lead the classes and will focus on targeting different areas that can form part of your rehab programme, part of your prehab programme, part of your injury prevention programme, part of your training programme, and everything in between!

There will be a limited timetable to begin with, however if you would like a specific time and think you can fill the class with work colleagues, friends or family, the team at SoCo will try to accommodate you.

The four classes include the following:

If you are still on the fence about joining, then why not grab a friend and head along for your first session which will be on the house! Yes free! And as an additional bonus, there will be free taster recovery food samples which include snacks and smoothies, courtesy of the Gourmet Food Parlour. These goodies will be available for the first two weeks. After that period you will be able to buy them post session.
