F45 Training, a functional boot-camp style training approach to fitness that originated in Australia, recently arrived in Louisville, Kentucky. Louisville orthopedic surgeon Dr. Stacie Grossfeld teamed up with personal trainers Melissa Goodlett and Kim Postema to open three F45 studios. With the F45 Middletown location opening in April, the female entrepreneurs are excited to announce the grand opening of a second F45 location in the St. Matthews neighborhood of Louisville, Kentucky! F45 St. Matthews will be opening on Saturday, July 13th at 4600 Shelbyville Road in the same plaza as Trader Joe’s, Feeder’s Supply, and Nordstrom Rack (right by Murphy’s Camera and the Vitamin Shoppe.) The grand opening celebration will start with two classes at 8:15 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. followed by a ribbon cutting at 10:45 a.m. with Richard Tonini, the Mayor of St. Matthews. Vendors including Zija, Perfectly Prepped, Fusion Wellness, Profile Sanford, Live Well Natural Health, and Pro Rehab will be at the grand opening along with a live DJ. Attendees will have a chance to enter giveaways and participate in a membership raffle during the celebration.
F45 started in Sydney, Australia in 2011. The founders of this high-intensity interval training (HIIT) program developed the unique approach that F45 utilizes as an answer for those who are interested in living a healthy lifestyle but find themselves in a rut within the normal, box gym setting. Since its start, F45 has become extremely popular around the world with thousands of locations opening across the globe. Now, high-profile celebrities like Mark Wahlberg are investing in F45 after having realized for themselves that the F45 Training approach is steeped in health benefits.
F45 Training focuses on a succession-style exercise routine that combines functional training, circuit training, and high-intensity interval training (HIIT). With thousands of variations, members of F45 training facilities are able to participate in various workout classes throughout the week without repeating classes. Each of the classes uses three training styles to help members with cardiovascular endurance while burning body fat and building strong, lean muscle.
