The rumors are true. Soon, members will be able to take part in functional fitness classes as part of the F45 program at Ohio University Campus Recreation.
What is F45?
F45 Training combines elements of High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Circuit Training, and Functional Training. The fusion of these three training concepts has lead to the development of 27 different 45-minute workout experiences, with more in development! This combination of interval, cardiovascular and strength training has been proven to be the most effective workout method for burning fat and building lean muscle. Learn more about F45 Training by checking out their website.
What you'll gain from F45
Functional training is the engagement in exercises that mimic or recreate everyday movement. These types of exercises typically involve the use of your full body and multiple muscle groups. This style of training builds and sculpts lean, functional muscle – lifting, squatting, jumping, twisting, pulling, pushing, punching, kicking, rowing, biking – all of these movements qualify as “functional" and all can be found at F45 Training.
Workouts That are Never the Same
The fixed, 45-minute duration of each workout exists to provide a timing structure to maximize members’ growth and progress. Daily workouts vary the amount of exercise stations, the work time/rest time ratio and the number of repetitions through the “Exercise Circuit” of each day. This provides a challenging workout that is always evolving and never the same.
Industry Leading Tech
Workouts are fueled and organized by the robust technology systems featured in our F45 studio. A series of TV’s mounted on the front wall of the studio provides an organized, station-by-station diagram for each daily workout. With the guidance and motivation of the F45 Coaches, this system is a visual tool for members to progress from station to station throughout the workout.
The employment of F45 Functional Training, Circuit workouts in a Team Training atmosphere is the final factor fueling F45 Training’s dynamism. The motivation and encouragement in a Group Training facility create a pulsing, upbeat environment where goals are met and exceeded.
When Will It Be Available?
Due to the cancellation of all Fitness programming for the remainder of the Spring Semester in response to Ohio University's Coronavirus preparedness, it is uncertain when this program will be fully launching at this time. Please stay tuned for for further details to be shared via this page.
