A new fitness mantra

It’s fast, it’s intense and it’s engaging. It’s the 45-minute workout that keeps celebrities such as Hugh Jackman and Nicole Richie in shape. F45, short for Functional 45, a fitness programme founded by Sydney-based celebrity trainer Luke Istomin, made its way to Chennai last month. Based on high-intensity, interval training, the fitness programme has been changing the way people look at fitness. It made its India debut in Hyderabad in 2015, before setting up shop in Chennai’s Nungambakkam in December 2016.
