F45 Training in Cambridge launches Prodigy, a form of exercise aimed at teens
Prodigy, a special fitness offering for adolescents, launched at F45 Cambridge Station on October 24.
Prodigy, a specially designed programme for adolescents between 11 and 17 years of age, is the latest innovation from F45, one of the world’s fastest growing functional fitness networks.
The programme has been designed to deliver a safe, effective and time-efficient form of physical activity for adolescents, giving them the opportunity to develop both physically and mentally in a motivating, community environment.
“With the success of F45 , we’ve specifically developed a Functional HIIT programme with the aim to combat the rise of obesity and health related issues in adolescents,” explains Lee Wallace, F45 chief sport science officer.
“F45 Prodigy’s HIIT workouts have been designed to mimic the nature of children’s day-to-day movements making it more appealing, engaging and enjoyable for kids, compared to other fitness structures, encouraging a lifelong participation in physical exercise.”
To adhere to COVID-19 measures, the F45 Prodigy team has put every parameter in place to ensure the health and safety of members.
F45 Prodigy sessions will have reduced class sizes to maintain social distancing guidelines, designated workout stations for adolescents and eliminate person-to-person contact and the sharing of equipment.
They will also include extended breaks in between the sessions, allowing for the equipment to be properly sanitised.
The roll-out of Prodigy launched in Australia in April 2019 and, due to its success, the programme is now launching in the UK.
