How to work out like you live on Bondi Beach.

ELLE (Canada) - - Insider -

If you’ve ever searched a fit­ness hash­tag, you’re fa­mil­iar with Kayla Itsines’ BBG pro­gram, A Bikini a Day’s Natasha Oak­ley and Emily Skye’s F.I.T. pro­gram. The lat­est Aus­tralian ex­er­cise ex­port is F45 Train­ing ($30 per class, f45­train­ing.com), a gru­elling 45-minute work­out de­signed to burn fat and build lean mus­cle us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of func­tional train­ing (work­ing mus­cles you use in daily life) and high-in­ten­sity in­ter­val train­ing (HIIT) in a cir­cuit-style for­mat. No class is ever the same; work­outs are com­piled from a data­base of over 3,000 strength and car­dio ex­er­cises orig­i­nally in­spired by the moves per­sonal trainer and F45 co-founder Luke Is­tomi would use to sculpt his celebrity clients (a list that reads like a who’s who of Aus­tralian ac­tors, such as Nicole Kid­man and Hugh Jack­man). You could find your­self push­ing a weighted sled, squat­ting on a Bosu, dead­lift­ing sand­bags and slam­ming down a medicine ball—or not. (It would take about 300 years for a class to be repli­cated from start to fin­ish.) Since its launch in 2014, the mas­sively pop­u­lar brand has ex­panded to more than 750 lo­ca­tions world­wide. Haven’t heard of it yet? You will. It plans to have 100 stand-alone lo­ca­tions open across Canada within the year.
