Group training cult F45 has taken the world by storm
over the past few years, expanding from a single
studio in Sydney in 2014 to a fitness empire with 800
studios in 24 countries. And finally it’s muscled its
way into Shanghai’s Jiashan Market, all glistening
and bulging guns a-blazing.
Somehow both at once incredibly gruelling and
impossibly fun, the 45-minute workouts have you
rotating between stations that combine different
elements from High-Intensity Interval Training
(HIIT), Circuit Training and Functional Training to
target multiple muscle groups at all times. And every
single workout is different, involving equipment like
battle ropes, sleds, free weights, kettle-bells, spinning
bikes, box jumps and more.
Exercise instructions are delivered via televisions
at each circuit station, while enthusiastic trainers
and a soundtrack of high-intensity hits curated by the
group’s in-house DJ keep the energy levels cranked
up to 11.
It’s a workout you’ll think about for days – and not
just because it’s a struggle to get out of your chair.
