So you’re thinking of joining an F45 challenge? Or simply visiting for a session? We bet you’ve got a few questions, so we’ve put together a post just for you. Here are some things you should know before you step into F45.
It’s not as hard as you think
Actually, the hardest bit (just like any workout) is getting there! The motivation and willpower to get to the gym is the toughest part, and once you get there the time will fly. We’re willing to bet you’ll be saying, “Wow, I can’t believe how quickly that went” once you’re done. As the name suggests, your F45 session is 45-minute high intensity, interval workout which will be over in what feels like no time at all.
Taking a friend helps
While you’ll get heaps of benefit from going it alone, going with a friend is so much more fun. You will go through your circuit in pairs so a buddy can come in handy. However, we’re sure you’ll make friends quickly if you’ve come lone ranger style. Another plus of going with a friend is that you’re less likely to pike it and back out because you’re committed.
You will sweat. A lot.
If there was ever a time to slather on the antiperspirant deodorant, pre-F45 is it. Spray it, roll it, do whatever you have to, just make sure you’re not being that guy or girl who everyone has to avoid thanks to an undesired stink.
You might also want to bring a towel along for the ride. Make sure it’s freshly laundered and don’t leave it in your gym bag and use it multiple times. Ew.
You’re going to hurt afterwards
The next day, and the one after that, you’re going to feel sore. When you work out you’re actually making tiny micro-tears in your muscle fibres. It’s the rebuilding and healing of these tears which builds your muscles. And naturally, when you’re literally tearing your muscles, it’s going to hurt. But it’s the good type of hurt, the one that tells you you’ve done an excellent job and worked hard. It’s a rewarding sort of pain you can brag about to your workmates.
You might get addicted
Don’t say we didn’t warn you. F45, with its endorphin hit and results, can be addictive. Next, you’ll be wearing an F45 tee shirt and one-upping your colleagues in the lunch room. Your morning session was definitely more brutal *wink*.
