A fitness concept that started in Australia in 2012 has made its way to the Tampa Bay area.

F45 Training Land O' Lakes is slated to open in late February, making it the fifth location in Florida and the first in the Tampa Bay area.

More locations are slated to open throughout the region.

"The 'F' stands for 'functional,'" co-owner Jennie Demas said. "You're in and out in 45 minutes."

F45 Training combines elements of High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Circuit Training, and Functional Training.

This type of training burns fat and builds and sculpts lean muscle.

There are 27 different 45-minute workouts which include Brooklyn Boxing, Firestorm Interval, Wingman Paired Resistance, and Foxtrot Cardio Based.

"When you come in, you'll never do the same workout twice," Demas said.

F45 trainers provide guidance and motivation during classes while a series of TVs serve as a visual tool for station-by-station diagrams for each daily workout.

"Everything is very high tech," Demas said.

Clients can book classes using the F45 Training app or online.

F45 Training Land O' Lakes is located at 18963 State Road 54. For more information, call (813) 603-1163 or visit facebook/f45landolakes.
