F45 Playoffs to test speed, strength, agility, endurance, mobility and power

F45 Playoffs to test speed, strength, agility, endurance, mobility and power
March 9, 2018

Starting today at Sydney’s Bondi Beach, the F45 Playoffs will focus on speed, strength, agility, endurance, mobility and power.

The three-day ‘pop-up’ event, dubbed “the world's most innovative and challenging new fitness test”, are an intense test for F45 Training members, consisting of 10 exercise stations - each lasting 45 seconds with a 15-second break in between, totalling a 10-minute workout.

A fraction of a regular F45 class, the stations are familiar to regular F45 exercisers but come one after the other in punishing succession, and demand maximum effort.

The challenge starts on the top level of the pop-up facility, located in an adapted shipping container, with a rowing machine, bench hops, push-ups combined with a knee tuck, then sideways hops.

Participants then slide down a fireman’s pole to the second level which features box jumps, burpees; unassisted chin-ups, a squat and overhead press, Russian twists and a deadball lift – all assessed by F45 trainers.

Speaking last year, former F45 Training Athletic Director Dan Conn stated “it’s a spectacle.“Especially when (all 10 stations are) full and there’s all these people chasing down each other.”

Conn developed the event prior to his August 2017 move to the Collective Wellness Group.

The F45 Playoffs run from today (Friday 9th) to Sunday 11th March 2018.
