WESTFIELD – Everyone seems to be more focused on their swimsuit bodies this time of year, especially after a long COVID-19 lockdown and receiving what many have dubbed “The Quarantine 15”.

As we work to get back to a healthy lifestyle, fitness experts recommend trying a variety of workouts to see what you like and what you actually hold out.

Today we’re exploring a brand new F45 location in Westfield, which opened earlier this month on an area of ​​2,400 square feet.

Lace up your tennis shoes because it’s time to sweat on this neighborhood trip.

“We have always been athletes all our lives,” says owner and studio manager Krystin Haas. “I just love helping people get healthy. Just to see how that comes with the people in here and the long-term effects. ”

A healthy and fit lifestyle is the long-term goal, but the workout itself is relatively short.

“[The name] Q45 is ‘Functional’ and then 45 minutes, ”she explained. “I’m a great entry and exit type who suits me well and is this athletic trainer and this sports medicine side [with] Functional movements are very important to me and therefore proactive injury prevention. “

The “functional” aspect of training focuses on the types of movements you perform each day, such as climbing stairs, lifting objects, and bending over.

Another benefit of 45-minute functional training – with multiple course options throughout the week – is that it can be easily incorporated into most schedules, even during lunch breaks.

Just come in, put your belongings in a drawer, and hit the floor where a certified personal trainer will lead each workout on a variety of machines.

“We have bikes, rowers, kettlebells, and dumbbells. We can do the heavy lift, so it’s a nice mix between that heavy lift and the cardio and a lot of people don’t like one or the other and it goes well together, ”said Haas. “We have everything.”

The workout changes every day and alternates between cardio days in high-intensity interval training, strength training and hybrid workout days.

“It’s really set up so that you can come in any day if you want without the boredom and plateau you hit in many other programs,” noted Haas.

You can also look at one of the many flat-screen TV monitors to help you find your way around.

“The nice thing about F45 is also the technology we have so we have all the movements on the screen, so they can see them and know each station,” she explained. “And our certified trainers give you more of this one-on-one feeling during training and allow us to make more form corrections.”

Fortunately, Haas says they can customize the workout for all skill levels and fitness levels.

“It’s mostly about focusing on you, doing what you can, and then we’ll help you with the rest,” she said.

Four things you need to know about F45:

  • At the beginning of July, Krystin Haas and her partner opened the new location F45 Westfield Airport on an area of ​​2,400 square meters in Springmill Rd Suite A 400 16156. The “F” in F45 stands for functional – or movements that can be transferred to everyday life ( Lifting objects, climbing stairs, bending down, etc.) – and “45” alludes to the 45-minute training duration.
  • According to the F45 website, the workout is specifically designed to provide a functional full body workout while improving energy levels, metabolic rate, strength and endurance while incorporating a team mentality. They say they also aim to burn up to 750 calories per 45 minute session.
  • F45 offers workouts every day, including a one-hour workout on Saturdays, which also features a live DJ on site. “This is DJ Apex Legend … he’s a great guy and gets you going during your workout,” said Haas.
  • If you want to try the workout, they offer a 7 day free trial. Haas suggests doing each of their various workouts – cardio, strength, and hybrid – to get a good feel for what they are offering before deciding on a membership option.
