What’s all the F45 fuss about? Zac Gower checks it out

You have probably driven past an F45 or have a friend who is obsessed with the workouts. Over the last few years this functional workout has blown up all over the world with its 45 minute HIIT based training sessions.

Brothers Andrew and Simon Moullin have always been into their health and fitness. After several years in the corporate world, the two decided to head back to their fitness and coaching roots and open F45 in Leederville and Nedlands.

Andrew says that he was inspired by the chance to build a team of people who have fun, work out and keep you accountable for your workout. He saw the appeal of the life changing F45 workout for people of all fitness levels

When I arrived at the Leederville space I was greeted with a well organised setup of equipment, which I knew was going to get me hot and sweaty. Andrew and his assistant Eva walked the group through the workout called Docklands, a 45-minute cardio focussed extravaganza.

Working through a series of exercises (grouped in pods) the emphasis was on functional movements at a high intensity to get the heart rate pumping. Every time I felt like slowing down Andrew or Eva would be ready to keep me moving. Having the two trainers on hand meant that I always felt like my form was safe and correct, but also I couldn’t rest unless the group was resting!.

As the final buzzer sounded and high-fives were shared amongst my new buddies, I couldn’t help walking out the door with a smile on my face. If you’re looking for a great team and atmosphere, not to mention a challenging and functional workout, make sure you visit Andrew and the crew at F45 Leederville. You can sign up for a free seven-day pass at any of the F45’s online.

Head to F45 at Unit 19, 663 Newcastle Street Leederville, or get more info and locations online at F45training.com.au
