What is F45 training?

F45 training is a functional training method with high intensity workouts. It's so called because your workout will only take up 45 minutes of your day – ideal for those training around a busy schedule. Founded right here in Australia, this type of fitness is accessible in most Melbourne gyms.

The aim of this style of training is to incorporate both cardio and resistance into intense workout patterns. Your heart rate is kept high and your sweat keeps dripping - this way you burn more fat.

How many times per week should I go to the gym?

With a busy life schedule, it can feel impossible to book time in for a gym workout. Melbourne's gyms offer a variety of classes and training options with shorter workout bursts specifically for this reason.

To maintain fitness and a healthy weight, exercising three to four times a week will be sufficient to notice a difference.

However, if you're trying to train for an event or build muscle, then you may need to visit a gym more frequently. In this case, five days a week would be a good average to aim for, but the five days should be spent working on a combination of training activities.

How do I decide which gym is best for me?

Living in a vibrant and diverse city means you have plenty of gyms to choose from. But finding the right one for you will depend on the facilities, classes and training services you require. Here's a lowdown on the best gyms to help you find your ideal workout:
