Sarah, owner of F45 Albany Creek, shares with us what you’ve always wanted to know about F45…

Welcome to F45 Training where F stands for Functional Training and 45 is the time in minutes it takes to complete an F45 workout. The concept, created in Australia, is simple: we merge three separate training styles into one 45 minute workout. The workouts focus on High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Circuit Training and Functional Training and alternate between cardio and resistance-dominated sessions throughout the week. There are 27 different workouts and no two classes will ever be the same. It’s a total body workout that will keep your muscles and endurance guessing!

All the workouts can be scaled up or down depending on someone’s fitness level, or for injury maintenance, we can modify movements. The exercises all focus on burning fat fast and building lean muscle mass. Basically, you work your butt off (literally) for a short amount of time (40 seconds), rest (20 seconds), and repeat. Celebrities, football players, actors and media figures are all getting behind the new fitness craze – Hugh Jackman, Ricky Martin and Nicole Richie to name a few.

People wonder what the difference is with F45 compared to other training styles. Our workouts are fuelled and organized by robust technology systems.  A series of TV’s mounted right in front of you, provide an organized, station-by-station diagram for each exercise. With the guidance and motivation of our F45 Trainers, this system is a visual tool for our members to progress from exercise station to station throughout the workout, follow the leader style.

We also pride ourselves on being a friendly and fun “Team Training” environment. The atmosphere is motivating, we crank the tunes so you can’t hear yourself breathing! The upbeat environment is infectious!

Fatima’s Simple Detox:
–       Drink at least 2L of water per day
–       Avoid dairy and sugar
–       Have 1 tsp of intestamine in water (morning and night)
–       Have a probiotic before bed
–       Over this time increase chia seeds, psyllium, slippery elm (it does wonders for your gut)
–       Increase ginger and turmeric (I put mine in my smoothies)
–       Reduce the load placed on the liver through cutting down on caffeine, over the counter medications and alcohol

 

Ultimate Workout Playlist

Music is one of the great pleasures of life, so it’s no wonder that mixing it with your exercise routine can make it even more fun and satisfying.

Music is one of the great pleasures of life, so it’s no wonder that mixing it with your exercise routine can make it even more fun and satisfying. Music can help us be motivated, focus our thoughts and get in the zone. Music also elevates positive aspects of mood such as excitement and happiness, and reduces negative aspects such as fatigue.  We have created the ultimate workout playlist to pump you up and keep you motivated and having fun even when it gets tough.

Discover the playlist below:
To listen in full just download the Spotify app.

If you are running or exercising outside with music, remember to always stay safe and take precautions:

  • Do not have the music too loud so you can stay aware of your surroundings
  • Wear reflective materials on your clothes (like the Daisy Racerback Tank) if you’re running in low light
  • Choose well-lit, pedestrian dedicated routes with no traffic

No matter what your level is, have fun and enjoy your workout!
