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.
