There are many gyms and fitness centres around promising amazing results for their clients. And some can deliver on just that. But for those who really want to see improvements not just in the gym, but for ease of movement and strength in everyday life, it takes more than your average fitness centre to take your results to the next level. It takes a specialist gym in functional training to really make an impact.
At Valkyrie Functional Training we give you all the tools and support you need to succeed for both your short-term and long-term fitness goals. But not only that, we help provide you with the strength, stability, and mobility to thrive not only in sport but to perform the activities of daily life easily and without injuries. And that’s the difference between Valkyrie Functional Training and other Newcastle gyms around town.
This Is The Difference Between Valkyrie Functional Training and Other Newcastle Gyms
When we talk about functional training, we are discussing training that’s purpose is to correct dysfunctional patterns that are either physical and mental, through specific training methods. These dysfunctional patterns are present in everyday life, from the way we sit down at work to the way we exercise at the gym. If these issues are not addressed, these can negatively impact our quality of life.
Unlike many personal trainers around Newcastle who have done the bare minimum to be certified, Our Founder and Head Trainer of Valkyrie Functional Training Hugo Cranswick is a specialist in the field of functional training and human biomechanics. He has high-level and in-depth knowledge of these philosophies and uses these to improve the quality of life for all of his clients, with a tailored approach to their needs.
Along with his holistic approach to health, Hugo presents a wealth of knowledge on nutrition and paths to an active, healthy lifestyle. He is extremely passionate about helping people to live their best lives and his unique skill-set allows him to make a significant difference. He has trained his team to do the same. And unlike other gyms, our trainers are always on the scene to ensure every workout you participate in is a positive and constructive experience.
We don’t just focus on the physical side of things
Another difference between Valkyrie Functional Training and other gyms in Newcastle is that we don’t just focus on the physical side of things. We focus on the mental as well. It’s our aim to empower everyday people to face not just their physical barriers, but their mental challenges as well, and give them the tools they need to smash through these and reach their full potential.
Often these mental barriers that present the biggest challenges for most people. Emotions, thoughts, and feelings drive behaviour in one of two directions. Either to a positive direction in which people are motivated towards achieving success and developing a better, healthier, more energetic lifestyle. Or negative, which create unhealthy habits that can make us overweight, lacking energy and enthusiasm, and living a life inconsistent with one’s values about what is important.
Exercise is challenging, no question about it. People who have spent years leading a sedentary lifestyle are often challenged the most when it comes to changing their habits. It’s tough strengthening muscles they haven’t used for a long time, and making new demands on your heart and lungs. And of course, doing what it takes to committing to losing weight and living a healthier lifestyle.
The support you need & the tools to succeed
At Valkyrie, it is our core focus to address these barriers and not just give you a training program and send you on your way. We give you the support you need and the tools to succeed whether you join us for one of our Bootcamps or try out our Strength and Mobility classes. Unlike other Newcastle gyms, our group classes don’t just go through the motions of a workout. We help install correct movement patterns that translates directly to your everyday activities both at and away from the gym.

It’s what we call “functional strength”. Our state-of-the-art facility is also fitted out with all the equipment you need including a freestyle training area to encourage free movement, power cages, suspension training rigs and a sled/sprint track and more.
