Averon Edwards vividly remembers being in the middle of the Caribbean Ocean on a cruise when he first heard a friend mention a wildly-popular fitness facility called F45 Training. His friend was hooked on the concept, which delivered on its promise of getting an intense workout in under an hour and seeing his enthusiasm prompted Averon to check it out.

As it turned out, he and his wife, Jennifer, found a location in Corinth and instantly fell in love — so much so that they opened their own F45 Training franchise just more than a month ago in Lantana.

“We have a strong member base, but still have plenty of room to grow,” Averon said. “The biggest thing for us is creating a fun place to train and creating more awareness for F45 Training Lantana and our awesome trainers/coaches. If you walk up to 10 people and ask them if they know what F45 is, the odds are high that none of them would know yet. But we’re getting there. We feel like those who have experienced it are hooked. The workouts are great, and the atmosphere is amazing.”

F45 is the world’s fastest-growing functional training community. There is so much hype because, unlike traditional workout clubs and gyms, F45 specializes in innovative, high-intensity group workouts that are fast, fun, and resultsdriven. The “F” in the name stands for functional training, which incorporates a mix of circuit and HIIT-style workouts geared toward everyday movements. The “45” represents the amount of minutes it takes to get through the workout.

One of the biggest selling points for Averon and Jennifer was that they had the autonomy to give their Lantana location their own look and feel. Every single one of their personal trainers is certified, which means the clients receive an unrivaled personal training experience while still working out in a group setting.

On Saturdays, they hold a one-hour session and invite a DJ to play live music.

“It’s 45 minutes, in and out. Also, all of our classes are different. So you never end up repeating the same workout,” Averon said. “Our personal trainers provide that oneon-one feel and are there to help correct your form, get you through the workout, and prevent injuries. We found this and love it. This was definitely a good fit.”
