Kicking Off My One Year Membership With F45 in Rockford

Hello everyone! My name is Sydney Aldrich and I was the lucky winner of the F45 year membership in Rockford. Like many of us, my fitness journey has been all over the place. I go through periods where I hit it hard and then struggle to stay consistent. When the “new year, new me” time rolled around this December, I was ready to dedicate 2020 to getting back in shape and focus on being the healthiest version of myself.  I almost cried when I heard that I won the year membership to F45 in Rockford. It was perfect timing!

Over the past year, I’ve really enjoyed lifting weights and doing HIIT workouts in the gym or at home. I was THRILLED when I looked into the class offerings at F45 and found that they are a mix of circuit and HIIT style workouts geared towards everyday movement. Each class is only 45 minutes long, so it’s perfect with my busy schedule (plus no excuse not to go)! While it’s only 45 minutes, it’s 45 minutes of intense sweat dripping, heart-pumping work. Every other day focuses on either cardio or resistance training. It’s the perfect mix. The trainers are so friendly, helpful and encouraging. They’re able to walk around and help you with proper form during exercises to prevent any injuries. All the exercises at each station are modeled on mounted screens, making it a breeze to follow along.

I tore my ACL a few years ago and it really set me back physically. Since my recovery, my main goal has been gaining strength. F45 is the perfect place for that. Each workout is designed to help you build muscle while getting your heart rate up.  Another goal of mine is to focus on healthy, functional eating habits that I can stick with for life.  F45 has quarterly 8-week challenges that include a free meal plan, grocery list, healthy recipes and loads of nutrition information.  They make it so easy for members to follow along and work towards their goals. I have been doing well sticking to the meal plan and I’m looking forward to the results from healthy eating, blasting calories and building muscle!

I can’t recommend this gym enough. It’s a seamless experience from the minute you walk in the door to the minute you leave.  It’s group training so everyone is doing the same exercises, sweating together and feeling the same burn. You really start feeling like a family after a while! If you’re thinking of trying it out, they offer a 7-day free trial. I would highly recommend booking a Saturday morning class. It’s a hybrid of cardio and resistance training. The best part?  There’s a live DJ cranking tunes for the entire 45 minutes! It’s such an exhilarating way to start your weekend! I can’t wait to see where my training at F45 takes me. So far, it’s been a health game-changer.
