Time is a malleable thing. 45 seconds doesn’t feel like a lot of time when you’re mindlessly scrolling through Instagram or bingeing on your fifth hour of Netflix. But when you’re swinging an 8kg kettlebell in the air, less than a minute can feel like a lifetime.
If you’re part of the F45 Training cult, you’ll have noticed a new buff guy up on the screens that demonstrate each day’s workout. He’s LA-based athlete and fitness model Cory George, who’s joined the F45 team as an ambassador as the Sydney-based brand seeks to conquer the States.
There’s no denying Australia’s love affair with working out. Need proof? Just ask Donny Benét. We’re a nation of beaches beset with bronzed and buff bodies, and rather proud of it. Former equities trader Rob Deutsch co-founded F45 back in 2011. In just six years it’s become one of the greatest franchises and, now, exports, the Australian fitness (and dare I say business) community has ever seen. This is no dumb luck, however. Deutsch saw his opportunity and pounced with surgical precision. Everything they do is calculated and deliberate, but all with the common goal of helping people achieve their fitness goals in the least boring way possible.
EXERCISE is known to boost weight loss and make you stronger, but a particular gym workout could have an anti-ageing effect on your body too. Exercise may be more than just a way to maintain your waistline and build muscle – it could turn back time. A study published earlier this year discovered that high-intensity interval training – often abbreviated to HIIT – has an anti-ageing effect on the body. The workout has become a popular gym workout in recent years, and involves quick, short bursts of exercise.
Improving your fitness level is one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions, however gym memberships often go unused from February onwards. The trick to getting fit and staying that way is finding the right exercise for you. To give you a helping hand, Bazaar has edited the best new classes and experts for 2018.

We are only a few weeks away from Christmas and if you’re like me you are completely disorganised and still have no idea what to buy for some of your family and friends. Or maybe you are very organised and only have the last few bits to buy, or nothing at all (go you if you are that person, I’m forever trying to be as organised as you). I’m quite lucky in that I have a teeny little family and a few close friends so I don’t have loads of people to buy for but I still always struggle to buy for people, especially the “fitpos” in my life!
If, like me, you are already starting your Christmas shopping or starting to think about what you are buying each person you will already know there is at least one person on the list you have no idea what to get. It might be the dad who never wants anything much, the friend who seems to already have everything or the indecisive partner who doesn’t know what they want. How about something different for them this Christmas? My Christmas experience voucher gift guide is just the thing you need. Instead of buying something that will never get any use gift an experience voucher.

The functional fitness game at Cleveland State University is getting serious. Very serious.

The wearable tech market continues to grow and innovate (wireless earphones that monitor your heart rate anyone?), but tech is a downward fitness trend.
It was predicted to be 2017’s top trend, but in 2018 it is being shunted down the list (or is gathering dust in the back of the cupboard, if your wearable tech is anything like mine).
In its place, based on the responses of 4033 health and fitness professionals worldwide, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) predicts the top fitness trend is one guaranteed to get your heart racing: HIIT.
If you love HIIT sessions and are always looking for a challenge then F45 is right up your street. The Aussie workout is new to the UK and looking to revolutionise the way you get your cardio in. In the 45-minute Templar session you and a buddy can expect to sweat it out at no less than 14 different stations, performing high-powered moves like box jumps, resistance runs and battle rope slams.
