ABOUT US

WELCOME TO FUNCTIONAL U

We believe that the  IMAGINATION should be the thing that limits your life EXPERIENCES, not your body! This is REAL FITNESS.  Whether you’ve always wanted to climb Everest, run your first Marathon or just have more fun with your kids. We want to help you achieve your goals.

NO TREADMILL, NO MIRRORS, NO EGOS

The only machine we train is the one you’re using right now, your body!  You won’t just have one workout partner , you’ll have several and they will be with you all the way through a workout – sweating and cheering you on through the whole process.

FUNCTIONAL U IS FOR EVERYONE

All our workouts are designed to be scaled according to your fitness and skill level. Our community is made up of Teachers, students, busy executives, parents,  and tradesman. Our expert coaches will ensure each workout is perfect for you. Your grandmother could and should do CrossFit.

Meet Your Coaches

Alex Cheong

Coach / Owner 
After working abroad in the advertising industry for 7 years, I decided to follow my passion and retrain as a CrossFit coach. I’m probably one of the biggest CrossFit junkies you will ever meet – my idea of a holiday was working at the CrossFit regionals and travelling around Europe in a van visiting gyms.

Siobhan Mooney

Senior Coach
Shiv’s our senior coach at Functional U – you’ll find her in the morning doing her coaching thang, and you’ll also hear from her if you haven’t been in training for a week! Shiv has an amazing talent for bringing out everyone’s first double under, rope climb, and pull up! If this is something you’re looking for, then make sure to give her a shout!

She’s also pretty knowledgeable on how to kick ass while only eating veggies!

Halley Sims

Coach / Community Co-Ordinator
Meets Halley – she’s our awesome Evening Coach!  She’s kick ass, literally, she’s a black belt in Karate!  If you’re looking for an AWESOME way to end your day then make sure you turn up to her classes!

Halley is also in charge of organising our Community Events! 

Christine Yap

Coach / Nutrition Coach
CrossFit Coach and Melbourne Foodie!

Christine has always seen the importance of nutrition in  her performance, fitness and health. Her passion is to help people develop a healthy relationship with food and how it is a powerful tool for overall wellness, and performance.

David Vuong

Coach 
I believe time is best spent doing things that you enjoy most and CrossFit is one of them!  It was not until early 2013 when I found CrossFit U.  I have found specialty areas (movements) that I’ve particularly enjoyed and have educated myself outside the box – Olympic Weightlifting, Gymnastics and Mobility.

Anne Dang

In Charge of the Chill / Yoga Coach
Meet Anne – our Awesome Yin Yoga Teacher! 
If you’re looking for an awesome mid week week chill session, make sure you book into her Yin Yoga sessions on a Wednesday!
