F45 TRAINING

On Friday 15th September, Protein World met up with the team at F45 Tottenham Court Road. For those unfamiliar with who F45 are, they’re one of the biggest fitness concepts to sweep Australia since Subway and Starbucks opened their first locations. Since coming to the UK, they’ve continued to grow in popularity, opening franchises all over the place.

Functional 45 Training has ambitious expansion plans

F45, short for Functional 45 Training, is the fastest growing franchise in Australia, which is set to expand in the UK.

Founded by former equities trader, Rob Deutsch who spotted a gap in the health and fitness market just over three years ago, F45 has fast become a global fitness phenomenon, spanning 26 countries with 100,000 members and an anticipated 1,150 franchises by the end of 2017.

Following its unbridled success in Australia, F45 is now the fourth fastest growing franchise in the world, surpassing even Subway. F45’s ambitious expansion plans across the UK and Ireland, will result in 31 new sites opening over the next 12 months, following the launch of their flagship studio on London’s Tottenham Court Road.

Why the workout used by Nicole Kidman is growing fast in the UK

Time is a malleable thing. Forty-five seconds doesn’t feel like a lot of time when you’re mindlessly scrolling through Instagram or binging on your fifth hour of Netflix. But when you’re swinging an 8kg kettlebell in the air, less than a minute can feel like a lifetime.

Time for a change ?

Every winter I struggle to maintain motivation with my training and I know I’m not only one. The morning is the toughest the cold air makes me want to do nothing! I’ve also been guilty of doing the same old fitness routines day in day out. But this winter, I’ve decided to try something new.

But it’s not just a mattter of offering freebies

The reasons why somebody comes back to a brand are more complex. F45 Training, the fitness franchise, takes a very different approach to retaining customers and, unlike many gym chains, doesn’t even try to encourage people to commit to annual contracts.

Help! I’ve fallen off the fitness wagon… so what should I do?

Earthquakes in the fitness world. Joe Wicks, fitness guru and beacon of all things health, has released a new video in which he says he is “not exercising, blowing out every day, eating loads of junk food and feeling a bit naff”.
Yes, the man who brought us the Lean in 15 plan has fallen off the fitness wagon. Wicks admitted to binging on chocolate, fizzy drinks and hobnobs in a post on Facebook, saying, “I went to Miami with the boys for my birthday, I went to Vegas. I’m now in LA. I basically need to get back in the game mentally. I’ve just been lazy.”

ALL ABOUT F45

There’s something about getting to the end of a tough class and feeling the vibe in the room where everyone is half amazed that they got through the class and half absolutely loving it. Know what I’m talking about? Then you must have been to F45.
I tried out a class at F45 Farringdon, a small space in a basement close to Farringdon Station that has a large studio, bright reception area and small but well-stocked changing rooms. The welcome that I got at 07:30 in the morning before the Panthers class was friendly and set me up perfectly for the class.
Panthers consists of 14 stations with a mix of cardio and strength exercises including burpees, chest press and deadlifts. One of the things that sets F45 apart from other studios is how accessible it is because all of the exercises are shown on screens around the room as well as the work and rest periods (60 seconds of work and 20 seconds of rest for this particular class).

F45 is the best fitness class in London

There is something to be said for collective misery – a wonderfully binding sense of fraternity possibly more uplifting than collective happiness. Such is the lure of F45, the fitness craze that just keeps on giving. Based in a basement gym on Tottenham Court Road, F45 offers 45-minute high-intensity workouts for £25 a class. Yes, not cheap, but, burning up to 800 calories per class and with some of the most motivational, fitness-mad trainers in the business (honestly, we’re a bit worried about them) completely worth it.
