About F45 Training

F45 was founded in Australia in 2012 and has since seen explosive growth, now sporting over 1700 facilities all across the globe, with the majority in AUS and USA.

F45 training is a high energy, community & comradery focused, 45-minute blast. It’ll have your muscles burning, lungs blowing and adrenaline flowing. The exercises are simple and easy to learn, the class sizes are large and the training is strength-endurance and HIIT based.

Why Should I Choose F45 Training?

Canstar found that F45 training customers were the most satisfied gym members for three years in a row when compared to other gym chains.

✓ If you want an exhilarating and motivating group fitness environment that keeps you coming back for more. As well as a community of people who are like-minded and want to help you succeed.

✓ Contracts aren’t lock in, which means you can cancel your F45 Training membership at any time without penalty.

What Limitations Does F45 Training Have?

The most obvious downfall of F45 is the pricetag. It is perhaps the most expensive gym chain we’ve come across at around $60 – $65.00 per week.

✗ The environment can be a little fast and overwhelming for those who are brand new to fitness. It can be difficult to keep up if you’re very unfit or have never been in a gym environment before. 

✗ F45 Training is great for intermediates hoping to improve general strength and fitness, but if you’re more of an an advanced gym goer who really wants to improve their top-end strength, F45 Training is limited.

F45 Training Opening Hours

F45 is open from 6am – 6pm. With the majority of their classes taking place in the early hours before work (6am-9am) or after work (4pm-6pm).

If you’re hoping to sign up or ask any specific questions, you’ll need to visit F45 during their staffed hours and these times may vary from club to club and throughout the week.
