F45 Teddington opened its doors to the Teddington community back in June and has since been working tirelessly to improve people’s fitness in a warm and welcoming environment whilst also building relationships with local organisations and sports clubs.
F45 is a global fitness community specialising in innovative high-intensity group workouts. From its humble beginnings in Australia, the now US-based fitness company has over 1750 studios in 45 countries.
The ‘F’ in its name stands for ‘functional training’, while the 45 is the “total amount of time for sweat dripping, heart pumping fun”.
Caitlin Robbins, Studio Manager at F45 Teddington, explained how the innovative approach to daily classes and its community feel is what sets it apart from competitors.
She said: “I was a member of F45 and loved it so much that I wanted to actually work for the company, the focus on creating a community led environment is incredible.
“I have met people who I see on the weekend, people who live on my road, the energy is really infectious because you are surrounded by people that want to push themselves and before you know it, coming to class becomes the ideal way to start your day!”
Each day entails a varied workout session at the F45 studios with multiple trainers on hand to take part alongside members while providing morale and motivation throughout the class.
Working in pairs is often encouraged to help build relationships and classes are always concluded with high-fives all round.
James Mackay, who has been attending F45 Teddington since it opened, said: “My experience so far has been absolutely amazing. With the variety of classes, my overall fitness levels (strength and cardio) have improved so much in just five months.
“The team down at F45 are extremely supportive and will help everyone whether you are a beginner, advanced or dealing with an injury. Above all the community at F45 is great, everyone is super supportive, and I’ve made loads of great friends.”
Local resident Sara Mitchell added: “In the four months I’ve been training with F45 I’ve become fitter and stronger than I have been in years! I’ve never been with a fitness gym that has a different session every single day and it’s awesome.
“The trainers are seriously amazing, and I’ve not felt so encouraged or part of a team as I do at F45 Teddington. I honestly would ask anyone whatever their level of fitness to try a class or to sign up and see what a difference it makes.”
Simon Davidian is no stranger to F45, with three years of experience using neighbouring branches across London, however he stressed that none of them close to the experience at F45 Teddington.
He said: “Having had over 3 years of experience at other F45s prior to joining, I can honestly say that Teddington’s branch is unrivalled. The coaches are friendly, inspiring, and full of positivity, always on hand to help, regardless of your experience or fitness level.
“The workouts are administered with the utmost professionalism, with demos and advice given throughout the training programme. I have never felt demotivated or lost during a session at F45 Teddington – the coaches (and even some of our members!) will ensure that you’re having a great time and working out hard.
“F45 Teddington is not only a gym, but it is also a community. Since opening three months ago, the studio has arranged events such as socials, external fitness competitions and technique workshops. Through these events, I have been able to meet new people, many of whom I now call friends.”
Despite F45 Teddington having already established a community within their studios, the gym is ambitious to continue to expand its reach and has been working alongside numerous local organisations and schools.
Bootcamps have been run at East Molesey Cricket Club and the gym has helped them raise funds to support the development of their women’s and girl’s cricket teams.
Sporting activities are run frequently at Collis Primary School in Teddington including a tug of war at their summer’s sports day and F45 is in close contact with local councillors to continue to explore innovative ways of making access to fitness accessible across the borough.
F45’s reach expands beyond exercise, with the organisation recently announcing it will be partnering with the 2022 Teddington Christmas Lights Up.
Every year, the people of Teddington are treated to a hub of festive Christmas cheer as the town is brought together for the official lights switch-on.
Residents come together for the lights up whilst enjoying a fantastic array of market stalls and music, and F45’s involvement will go a significant way to help fund the annual event which is a standout highlight in the Teddington calendar.
A two-week trial of unlimited training is currently available for £45 or members have the opportunity to sign up for F45 Teddington’s first ever body, mindset and nutrition transformation challenge which will be running from October 23rd to December 17th.
