‘F45’ is short for Functional 45 Minute Training. Luke develops all training programs across the group, based on tried and true functional movement patterns tested on celebrity and corporate clients, including Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman!
Luke is passionate about building strong, lean, well-functioning bodies, optimizing his clients’ individual range of movement, strength, speed, power, agility, and perhaps most importantly, health and happiness.
“Back in the early childhood days for myself, getting fit essentially meant going for a run around the park for an hour or so until you got bored with it or until the local dogs chased you away!” says Luke.
“But with so many new and great options available to us all, the excuses for not having fun and also getting fit are pretty thin. Here’s a few of my favourite activities I tell my friends and clients to try.”
Indoor Rock climbing
You’ll love it if you’re: Time poor and love being in the great outdoors on the weekends.
You’ll hate it if you’re: Afraid of heights, or have trust issues.
Your body will love you for it because: It’s a great workout, and your upper body especially gets worked hard. The stronger you become, the more defined your arms will be.
What you’ll need to get motivated: A trusty rock climbing buddy to guide you from below, and remind you of how easy it looks from where they are!
Stand Up Paddle-boarding (SUP)
You’ll love it if you’re: A lover of the ocean.
You’ll hate it if you’ve: Ever watched Jaws as a kid!
Your body will love you for it because: This is a great workout for your midsection, upper body and most importantly, your mental state. With both your balance and power being tested at all times, and gliding along the open waters, this workout can be as peaceful as a meditation session, or as intense as open water racing.
What you’ll need to get motivated: A bit of early morning sunshine, but failing that, a dorsal fin behind you!
Activity: Kickboxing / MMA training
You’ll love it if you’ve: Ever had an older brother. Or have a horrible ex-boyfriend/ girlfriend who you would secretly love to show what you really thought of them!
You’ll hate it if you’re: Afraid to break a nail.
Your body will love you for it because: It’s a great stress relief. Being in your physical mind and hitting the pads or bags at 110 percent is a fantastic and empowering feeling.
What you’ll need to get motivated: A tough day at the office or some repressed memories of your childhood nemesis. It’s also great to have a buddy who is of the same physical strength and fitness that you are to practice with.
Activity: F45 Training
You’ll love it if you’re: Overweight or super fit, shy or extroverted, uncoordinated or coordinated… there’s something for everyone!
You’ll hate it if you’re: Afraid of a good time with other people.
Your body will love you for it because: With innovative programs incorporating everything from athletic training, strength training, cardio training, super metabolic circuit training, running clubs and plenty more, we are creating a culture of lean, fit mobile bodies ready to tackle the world head on and come out smiling with some new friends.
What you’ll need to get motivated: Just one session to experience the magic it’s been creating!
