A NEW Gold Coast mum was trying to juggle an early morning workout by rushing over to check on her five-week-old son in 30 second breaks of her high-intensity training.
Time is a malleable thing. 45 seconds doesn’t feel like a lot of time when you’re mindlessly scrolling through Instagram or bingeing on your fifth hour of Netflix. But when you’re swinging an 8kg kettlebell in the air, less than a minute can feel like a lifetime.
With beach season upon us and just eight weeks left until Christmas, many desperate Australians are turning to quick fixes and fad diets in an effort to get into shape.
And while some do see results on their chosen program, many gain the weight back quickly and struggle with lethargy, breakouts and a lack of motivation.
But according to five men and women who have transformed their bodies in just eight weeks, there is one program that left them looking and feeling better than ever – and they’re motivated to continue everything they’ve learned!

Earthquakes in the fitness world. Joe Wicks, fitness guru and beacon of all things health, has released a new video in which he says he is “not exercising, blowing out every day, eating loads of junk food and feeling a bit naff”.
Yes, the man who brought us the Lean in 15 plan has fallen off the fitness wagon. Wicks admitted to binging on chocolate, fizzy drinks and hobnobs in a post on Facebook, saying, “I went to Miami with the boys for my birthday, I went to Vegas. I’m now in LA. I basically need to get back in the game mentally. I’ve just been lazy.”
SATURDAY morning gym junkies are catching onto the latest research and getting into high intensity workouts.
F45 is the fastest growing fitness franchise in Australia, with systemised 45-minute studio workouts.
Gladstone co-owner and manager Candice Ferris opened the studio with partner Bradley Jamieson three months ago.

“I think that fact that none of the exercises are ever repeated and it’s all high intensity interval training is what makes it really successful.”

He’s always been active — doing lots of races like the Spartan Race and Tough Mudders, sometimes two per weekend. He was a wrestler and also coached wrestling.
There’s something about getting to the end of a tough class and feeling the vibe in the room where everyone is half amazed that they got through the class and half absolutely loving it. Know what I’m talking about? Then you must have been to F45.
I tried out a class at F45 Farringdon, a small space in a basement close to Farringdon Station that has a large studio, bright reception area and small but well-stocked changing rooms. The welcome that I got at 07:30 in the morning before the Panthers class was friendly and set me up perfectly for the class.
Panthers consists of 14 stations with a mix of cardio and strength exercises including burpees, chest press and deadlifts. One of the things that sets F45 apart from other studios is how accessible it is because all of the exercises are shown on screens around the room as well as the work and rest periods (60 seconds of work and 20 seconds of rest for this particular class).

If you think meeting up with model Natalie Roser for a workout, would be all gym selfies and no sweat, think again.
The Newcastle-bred beauty queen lives by the workout mantra, “go hard, or go home”.
“I have a really healthy attitude towards training. I train because I enjoy it, I look forward to it and when my body is tired or I’m not in the right headspace I have a day off, which makes me appreciate the days on even more,” she tells myBody+Soul.
Roser, whose workouts range from 30 minutes to up to two hours, is the new face of the 2XU Verve range, a seasonal print version of the cult 2XU Mid-Rise Compression Tight. You know, the ones with the wide waistband, that hold everything in, while protecting your muscles. (The range comes in four colours and is priced at RRP $160.)
