âWe’ve always been athletes our entire lives,â said studio owner and director Krystin Haas. âI also like helping people to be healthy. Just to see that come to fruition with the people here and the long term effects. ”
A healthy and fit lifestyle is the long-term goal, but the workout itself is relatively short.
“[The name] F45 is ‘Functional’, then 45 minutes, “she explained.” I’m a great type of person going in and out, so that suits me well and being this sports coach and this sports medicine side. [with] functional movements are very important to me and to this proactive injury prevention.
The âfunctionalâ aspect of training focuses on the type of movements you perform every day, such as climbing stairs, lifting objects and bending over.
Another benefit of a 45-minute functional workout – with multiple class options throughout the week – is that it’s easy to work out in most schedules, even during a lunch break.
Simply enter, put your things in a locker and hit the ground, where a certified personal trainer will lead each workout using a variety of equipment.
âWe have bikes, rowers, kettlebells and dumbbells. We can do the heavy lifting, so it’s a nice mix between that heavy lifting and cardio. A lot of people don’t like one or the other, and it mixes the two well, âsaid Haas. âWe have it all. “
The workout changes every day, alternating between high-intensity interval training-style cardio days, strength days, and hybrid training days.
âIt’s really set up in such a way that it lets you come in every day if you want to without getting bored and without getting bored like in many other programs,â Haas noted.
Plus, you can also turn to one of their many flat screen TV monitors for guidance.
âWhat’s good about F45 is also the technology we have so that we have all the movements on the screen so that they can watch them and know each station,â she explained. “And our certified trainers give you more individual feeling during training and allow us to correct the form further.”
