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.


The club is excited to launch a new program to help players / families in need in providing equipment that will be collected within the club called D.R.E.A.M. (Dynamo/Dash Rewarding Equipment Apparel Mission).  We will be collecting gently used soccer items: uniforms, balls, cleats, shin guards, socks, GK gloves and backpacks.  Please save the equipment from previous years and help those who are less fortunate!

Collections will take place during the Houston Cup Tournament, August 19-20 @ Alden Bridge and Carl Barton sites (7:30am – 5:00pm) and during the second week of training (8/28 – 8/31) at Gosling Park and Bear Branch (5:00pm – 8:00pm).  The equipment will be sent to multiple organizations domestically and internationally.  Some of the equipment will go to the city of Tegucigalpa, Honduras and help out a club under the guidance of Ruben Mares (former coach with Texas Rush).

For more information on the program, please contact Kasia Hickey @ kasia.hickey@gmail.com or call (281) 772-6987.

“Hello Kasia and thank you for your support. I am very appreciative of whatever you have as it will be a blessing for my kids. The children are from an impoverished area of Tegucigalpa which is the capital of Honduras.  We look forward to traveling to The Woodlands, TX to compete in the Houston Youth Cup 2017 and taking back some of the equipment that you have collected for our club.  Thank you again for all your help, it’s very much appreciated.”  Coach Ruben Mares, Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
