The F45 Story

F45 is a well-known Australian circuit training franchise founded in 2012 by Rob Deutsch and Adam Gilchrist in Sydney. Today, the brand stands at over 1,750 locations across 45 countries, and was one of the first boutique franchises to IPO on the New York stock exchange in 2019.

F45’s success has received celebrity endorsements from the likes of Hugh Jackman in their early days, as well as Mark Wahlberg, who is also an investor in the company.

Their  tagline “team training, life changing”, is reflected in their community-focused workouts that are catered to all fitness levels.

How Did F45 Tanjong Pagar Score Overall?

The full client experience at F45 Tanjong Pagar was very good, achieving The Fit Guide 4-Star Award.

The class was also industry-leading, winning our highest accolade, the 5-Star Class Experience Award.

The Highlights

You couldn’t fault the coach’s energy, which really rubbed off on everyone in the class and injected life into our early morning start.

What Our Evaluator Had To Say

“Our coach was energetic, friendly, and made a strong effort to connect with everyone in the session.

“The group class was very well structured and the exercises on the screens made the session easy to follow.”

“The coach had a fun vibe, jokingly asking us if we wanted to do back-to-back sessions as the next class started.”

What to Expect From An F45 Session

The name stands for “Functional Training 45”, with sessions being a mix of functional HIIT and strength exercises delivered in a 45-minute format. Each day, the workout is predetermined by F45 HQ and is the same at every F45 location worldwide. 

Their Saturday “Hollywood” sessions are the only 60-minute class and are famous for hiring local DJs to create a party atmosphere and bring the community together.

Workouts are typically run by two or more coaches per class. To support the coach, clients are guided by screens that display each exercise as well as beeps and graphics that cue you to work, rest or move to your next station.

The Reception Service

Our pre-visit calls to the branch weren’t answered. On arrival, the coach was doubling up as front desk, balancing his duties well by asking us to take a seat until he was finished with his current session.

Once the class had finished, the interactions were friendly and efficient, with time being taken to show us the space and get us ready for the workout.

The Class Experience

F45 Tanjong Pagar has achieved The Fit Guide 5-Star Class Experience award for an exceptional class, putting it amongst the very best in Singapore and the industry.

Our coach did a fantastic job, spending the session running around and connecting with everyone with boundless energy. He was tweaking the exercises to ensure they were at the right level for each client and was positive and friendly throughout.

The Equipment And Studio

The equipment was plentiful and all looked slick and on brand. The studio was spacious and well laid out, but some cleanliness and condition issues were noted.

The Facilities And Public Areas

Workout and shower towels were provided free of charge. Lockers were not provided. There was, however, a shelving rack for clients to put bags. Free water refill stations were available.

The toilets were clean and spacious, but the shower and changing area were very small and there were numerous personal items scattered around.

Digital And Technology

The tech-based screens made the workout easy to follow and also helped countdown the time until the next class which kept things organized. The website was easy to navigate and booking a session was seamless. The social media pages were updated regularly and provided good insight into the client experience.


F45 Tanjong Pagar offers an introductory two-week trial to first-time clients for $49.

If you’re looking for a longer-term commitment, unlimited memberships are available from $356 per month for a monthly autopay deal down to $300 a month for a six-month commitment.
