F45 is a dynamic and ever-evolving leader in innovation across the health and fitness industry. Offering a unique opportunity that is driven by quality, reputation, and convenience, F45 sets itself apart from competitors. Integrating two of the most innovative and widely researched trends in the health and fitness industry, F45 has created a highly functional team training program. The pairing of interval cardio and strength training has been shown to be the most effective method of burning fat and building lean muscle.

F45 has adopted these two major fitness movements and created a finely tuned powerhouse system with a variety of fun, functional and efficient workouts to achieve maximum results, personal and professional achievement and life transformations.

F45 Training merges 3 separate leading-edge fitness training styles into one, consummate and compelling group training experience for its members. F45 Training combines elements of High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Circuit Training, and Functional Training. The fusion of these three training concepts has lead to the development of 32 different, 45 minute workout experiences, with more in development by our F45 Athletics Department. This combination of interval, cardiovascular and strength training has been proven to be the most effective workout method for burning fat and building lean muscle. The variation of our workout programming keeps our members challenged, eager to grow and ready to have fun.

“F45 Training is thrilled to have joined forces with DynamoDash, the biggest soccer club in the Houston Area! We are excited to provide physical activity to all members of the DynamoDash family, not just the kids. F45 Training is a team-based, functional training facility that places a huge emphasis on the ‘three key factors’ of motivation, innovation and results. At F45 (the F stands for functional), no program is ever repeated, making every workout a unique experience.”  Steven Sullivan, Owner.

“This is going to be a great partnership as we have an active membership in our club that recognize the importance of leading healthy lifestyles.  Functional 45 Training is very unique and on the cutting edge of modern fitness training.  The club is not currently affiliated to any gym or fitness center so the partnership is a win-win for both organizations.”  Simon Boddison, Director of Soccer Operations.

Dash City Program

The club had a total of 96 players attend the event which included both the 2006 and 2007 age groups. The event was represented by the best players in a 100-mile radius of the BBVA Stadium with Dash families traveling from as far as Katy and Beaumont to participate. After the first three events, the coaching staff involved will select a pool of players for both age groups which will become the ‘CITY’ team that will participate in further training sessions (invite only) and compete in identified tournaments both in and out of state.

MISSION STATEMENT – “Bringing the best players together to represent the City of Houston”.

“Last night at Lents was a terrific night of soccer. With the DA training as a backdrop, we got to see the best U11/12 players from the greater Houston area. The depth of the talent was very impressive. With this representing the future of our club, the future is looking bright!”  Randy Evans, Dash Director.

The first night of the Dash City program was a fantastic success. It was great to have so many areas of the city represented and the players interacting with each other throughout the night. I would like to thank all of the families for their support of the event and especially the players that traveled long distances to attend. We are excited for the next event in October.”  Michael Openshaw, Dash City 07 & 06 Director.

Gabi Gray – Kicked Cancer

After leaving the soccer field in November of 2015, Gabi has finally made her official return to the soccer field. She played in her first tournament in mid August. Our emotions were all over the place.  As parents we were nervous, Gabi …well she just simply beamed.  This survivor with a completely reconstructed right chest wall was out there kicking and throwing elbows like cancer never happened.  It will still take time for her strength, stamina and speed to improve, but she’s on her way!

“As her coach for close to five years, initially everyone was so sad when she was diagnosed with cancer.  I’m so proud to have been part of this girls miraculous recovery.  Her strength, commitment, love for life, belief and overall determination to overcome cancer is so admirable.  Now she’s back stronger than ever playing the game she truly loves with Dash 02 West.”  Ivan Ruddle, Head Team Coach, Dash 02 West. 

“I feel extremely grateful to just get back to a normal life. I was determined throughout treatment to eventually get back to the soccer field with my friends. My friends and soccer coach will never know how much their support meant to me in my recovery.”  Gabi Gray, Dash 02 West.
