UAB University Rec members and non-members can test their fitness skills on March 2 with a program dedicated to the F45 model. This national fitness program, that merges three separate leading-edge fitness training styles into one, will be hosting a playoffs competition that ranks participants at ten different stations.

“The F45 Playoffs is a competing event that allows participants to push themselves to their fitness limits and see how they compare or use it simply as a baseline to see how much they improve throughout the semester and in their fitness journey,” says UAB Coordinator of Fitness and Wellness Brianna Lee.  

Each station has a different workout lasting 45 seconds accompanied by a 15-second break to rotate to the next station. Participants’ results are then put into the F45 system to rank them on a regional, state, or national level. Top UAB challengers will receive a prize at the end of the competition. The event is 9 a.m.-12 p.m. and free to UAB students. Members pay $15 and non-members pay $30.  

“The purpose and main goal of the playoffs is to give our F45 program and instructors a little more exposure as well as provide an exciting and upbeat opportunity for individuals to test their physical capabilities in a short, ten minute workout,” Lee said. “e also want more people to have a chance to see and experience F45 as a program because it has really made a difference in our current participant's life, and not just physically.”
