What’s F45 and where are the studios in Hong Kong?

F45 originated in Sydney, Australia. Now there are F45 gyms all over the world including multiple F45 gyms across Hong Kong. F45 offers 45 minute high-intensity workouts. No workout is ever the same.

If you’ve not heard of F45 yet, where’ve you been? It all started in a Sydney gym in 2012 and in 2015 it went global with studios now all over the world.

The concept is to do 45 minutes of high-intensity training. It’s a body conditioning program that will burn fat and build muscle.

You won’t be alone in your endeavors – every studio across the world does the same workout on the same day, but won’t do the same workout twice.

Studios are filled with technology – screens around the gym show you the current and next exercise. F45 sessions are also facilitated by instructors to correct posture and suggest modifications, too.

In our guide to F45 in Hong Kong, we list all the F45 studios across the city and a price list for some of the best located F45 studios in Hong Kong.
