F45 Functional Training

Western Michigan University's Student Recreation Center is proud to be the first F45 college campus studio  in Michigan (sixth in the United States). Located in racquetball courts 1 & 2 at the Student Recreation Center, the 1,600 square foot F45 studio incorporates technology into an array of circuit-based workouts in a team environment to provide a totally immersive experience that is fun and fast.

F45 is a functional training program that incorporates a variety of fun and efficient workouts. Classes are a 45 minute high intensity, circuit training workout. There are over 30 different workouts delivered through a series of televisions mounted on the front wall. The workouts are created by F45 Training Headquarters from a database of over 3,000 different exercises. Each day of the week has a different focus and workout and is broken down as follows:

  • Mondays - Cardio resistance and core
  • Tuesdays - Resistance and core
  • Wednesdays - Cardio
  • Thursdays - Resistance and core (alternates upper and lower body each week)
  • Fridays - Resistance hybrid

How are classes structured?

The TVs that are mounted on the wall provide an organized, station-by-station diagram for the workout. This provides a visual tool for participants to move from station to station throughout the workout. Each station has a group working together and encouraging each other to successfully perform each exercise. Trained F45 instructors are in every class to help with exercise modifications, motivation and encouragement. 

What types of passes are available?

The SRC offers multiple types of passes to attend classes. You can choose the one that is right for you.

  • GroupEx - You can attend any class that is not labeled F45 on the schedule.
  • Unlimited Fitness - You can attend any class on our schedules including F45, yoga, cyclefit, etc.
  • F45 30-day - You can attend any class labeled F45 for 30 days. Pass is valid for 30 days from date of purchase.

How can I reserve a spot in class?

Reservations spots are only available to those patrons that have purchased a fitness pass that includes F45 classes (Unlimited, F45 30-day). Your spot can be reserved up to one day in advance in our online portal, mobile app, in person at the SRC or by phone on the day of the class. Since the daily capacities vary by class, the number of reservable spots will vary. Any remaining spots that are not reserved become available 2 hours prior to the start of class and are available to current F45 members, those members that activated their membership that day, or by paying the $4 drop-in fee.

What do I do when I come for class?

Come to the SRC ready to workout. Enter through the turnstiles with your Bronco Card and come on down to the first floor. The F45 studio is located directly across from the aerobics studio in the large glass racquetball courts. Check in with our instructors that are outside the studio when you arrive.
