Finding the motivation to go to the gym can be hard sometimes.
We’ve all had those days when we’ve given in to the temptation to spend an extra hour in bed, or head straight to the nearest happy hour after work, instead of hitting the free-weights section as we know we should.
Plus, when you do make it to the gym you need to find the drive not to call it a day after a half-hearted 15 minutes on the treadmill.
But F45 Training has just arrived in the capital, and now we have no more excuses. It has brought with it a whole new way of working out that’s aimed at getting even the most exercise-shy amongst us building up a sweat every day.
The fitness chain already has more than 1,300 studios in 36 countries throughout the world, and now it has set up at a new base at Abu Dhabi’s Zayed Sports City.
The 45-minute sessions are designed to have maximum impact. Using a combination of high-intensity interval training (HIIT), circuit training and functional training, you can burn up to 750 calories per session. The exercises target all areas of the body, burn fat and build lean muscle.
The weekly schedule sees each day focus on a different aspect, from resistance training in the ‘Panther’ sessions, to Cardio in the ‘22’ classes. With workouts scheduled throughout the day, it’s designed to fit in to any routine.
The sessions are suitable to do on a daily basis. One class won’t leave you so broken that you don’t have the energy to join in the next day either.
With everything planned for you, all you need to do is turn up. Whether you want to improve your fitness levels, tone up or lose weight, this studio can help you smash your goals.
It’s not all serious though; Friday’s class is basically one big party. The in-house DJ blasts out some super-catchy beats as you work through the moves, and dancing between stations is compulsory.
If you want the benefits of a personal trainer but in a group environment, these sessions could be just what you need.
With F45 you’ll discover a new way of working out, make new friends and transform your daily routine. If you think you hate the gym, it might just make you think again.
The studio is currently offering free one-week trials when you sign up on the website. So why not start your new fitness routine today? Waiting for January as part of your New Year’s resolution is so 2017.
