Tried and Tested: F45 South Buona Vista and Bukit Timah

WellnessPost Category - WellnessWellness - Post Category - FitnessFitness

Have you joined the trend and tried F45 Training yet, mama? After six months, fitness nut George tells us why she’s hooked!

Ok – So I’ll be honest – I did slightly roll my eyes when I heard there was yet another new trend in the Singapore gym world – coming to transform fitness as we know it. Surely we had it all already!

Fast forward 6 months and I am a bit of an addict. Predictable or what? But actually it wasn’t love overnight – F45 Training, unlike its name, was a slow burner for me.

Happily working my way through Guavapass I didn’t even think I had time for another class. But always one to jump on the bandwagon – I started with the fab 2 week free trial they offer – it felt so odd being in a fairly small space for only 45 minutes, with TV screens to guide the way as well as the instructor. But the next day I could really feel the effect! So I dove in deeper to try out the full variety of classes.

Started in Australia, F45 merges three training styles into one: HIIT (High Intensity training), circuit training and functional training. This combination of cardiovascular, interval and strength training has been proven to be the most effective workout method for burning fat and building lean muscle.

There are now 27 different 45-minute workout experiences to chose from. All that combined with fab ambiance, great music and friendly instructors, makes for a fab experience. You do not have time to look at the clock – before you know it, 45 minutes is over. Over!

My personal fave location is Bukit Timah — easy parking and right next to the MRT. Classes run throughout the day – so there is a always a time to suit! No excuses, mama!

Top classes for me are Romans (Resistance meets Functional) and Hollywood (27 stations that will put your strength, core stability and cardiovascular endurance under the brightest of spotlights).

So now I’m hooked – and if I can do it, anyone can!

Email Jayne at [email protected] for your free trial, mama!

What's New

The #Lifebeyondgrades campaign aims to break the taboo of discussing PSLE scores to stop kids from thinking those results will define who they are or will
become. Here’s Sassy Mama co-founder @mamayeowdevito: “It might come as a surprise, but I just do not remember my PSLE results! I
was always non-academic, and only just scraped through PSLE to get into
secondary school at St Theresa’s Convent. I recall studying really hard, having
lots of late nights, memorising, yet not doing too well. That period of my life is
a blur now; maybe I chose to block it out. I knew in secondary school I didn’t
want to go to JC and instead researched polytechnic courses for business and
marketing. 
I found my first job as a marketing communications assistant at Singapore
Marriott Hotel even before my last paper at Nanyang Polytechnic. I was so
excited about the job that the studying and results of my diploma didn’t
matter. 
I moved onto Raffles Hotel, then Pan Pacific Hotel and very quickly rose to
head marketing roles. There was so much pressure to perform but I always
had amazing bosses and mentors watching over me, believing in what I did. I
worked 25 hours a day but enjoyed every minute. This type of education - LIFE’s lessons, successes and failures - rather than academic lessons - have been the best education for me.

I am successful in my own right now – both in business and with my beautiful family for which I am grateful. I am so lucky to have found what I love to do and am still loving every minute of it!

I don’t remember my PSLE results but whatever they were, I didn’t let them define me. We should not let numbers define our lives; ultimately it’s much more important to help our children develop a strong character, and encourage them to pursue their personal passions. Because neither failure NOR success can be truly quantified.
A little ball of fluff just landed on your Wednesday!
