A few months ago, I tried an F45 workout at Sydney’s Town Hall gym. Boy, was that a workout and a half!
Challenging training, pumping music, great atmosphere… loved it. Shame it was so far away from where I live… Best news to head into 2016 is that a brand new F45 is opening really near me. Near enough that I can visit weekly. Daily? Maybe 😉
Dave and Alicia Corsar are the owners of the latest franchise that’s sweeping the nation. There’s a reason you’ll see that now-iconic F45 logo all over instagram and why there’s articles in this months Men’s Health and Cleo about F45… I asked Dave and Alicia to tell us why F45 works.
If you’re local to Frenchs Forest on the Northern Beaches, then hop online and check them out for a free trial. I’ll see you there.
Over to you, guys…
F45 Training Frenchs Forest is team-based functional programming that offers high-intensity classes with a huge emphasis on motivation, innovation and results.
The hype is real, F45 is the fastest growing fitness network in Australia and here are the reasons why.
1. Expert Programming
The programming is brilliant and guaranteed to deliver results.
F45’s dedicated sports directors are constantly developing the programming to ensure that if a member commits a few times a week, they will achieve their individual results. We have:
- 10 customised training systems
- 10 unique circuit movement patterns
- 15 different timing modules
- Over 1,000 exercises
- And the workouts change every day
Regardless if you’re an athlete or beginner, the programming is customised to go at your individual pace, yet still challenge you to your absolute max.
Classes are either cardio-based or strength-based, pumping to the hottest music and the sessions are planned down to the second. Because it’s timed, everyone can work at their own pace.
You could be exerting yourself for as little as 20 seconds, resting for 10 seconds and then back in to it for another 20 seconds, depending on the exercise. No other fitness program can have a professional athlete paired right next to a first timer, with both working to their capacity and absolutely floored together at the end, high-fiving each other on their achievement.
2. Ever Changing Challenges = Daily Motivation
As an F45er, you will remain motivated and challenged daily, which leads to consistency and enables you to achieve incredible results.
Possibly the most important reason F45 works is because members actually wake up in the morning looking forward to their next F45 session because the programming is so diverse they are in for a surprise every single session, and they know they’ll be challenged.
Even if you find one exercise movement easy (ha!) when you transition to the next, you may face your biggest weakness. Challenging the body and mind this way sets you up, eager to progress in all areas. Soon you’ll be tackling your weaknesses head-on and see the improvements on how you move, look and feel.
And of course that means you’ll be motivated to come back and train daily.
3. A Holistic Community
F45 Frenchs Forest is a fun and supportive place to train. The team aims to create a community that endorses all aspects of your health and wellness.
In many ways F45 is actually a lifestyle choice that has so many mental and physical benefits.
Ways that we support our members outside of the sessions include providing wellness workshops that educate members on nutrition, embracing healthy eating and providing overall awareness on how to incorporate a healthy balanced lifestyle for them and their whole family.
Life is too short to not surround yourself with friends that you can have a laugh and have fun with.
Some of our members have very busy family and work lives so being able to dedicate 45 minutes a day to completely removing themselves from external stress provides so much more mental benefits than just the physical results they’ll see with F45.
4. You Can Find Your Inner Athlete
F45 brings out the inner athlete in you and is a competitive sport competed across the world.
F45 Playoffs, set to kick off in Manly again in February 2016, provide members a competitive arena if that’s what they want to do. The F45 Playoffs are the world’s most innovative and challenging new fitness test with a focus on speed, strength, agility, endurance, mobility and power with 10 stations timed.
The winner takes home $100,000.
With our coaches’ guidance some of the athlete members will dedicate the year training to improve their past individual scores and dominate others in the country, and worldwide.
Other members will love having a focus to get fitter and will participate in the playoffs to get a score as a base to improve in future. Either way, all sports have one key objective; to constantly improve and dominate.
Whether that domination is a world athlete winning the F45 playoffs in Huntington Beach next year, or a beginner member smashing their individual fitness goals to look and feel amazing, with our coaches’ guidance the inner athlete will be challenged and set up for success with F45!
Thanks, Dave and Alicia. I think I can add another reason why F45 works… well two, actually… it’s hard work! Plus. So. Much. Fun. Don’t believe me?
