Wollongong CBD F45 Training Wollongong
“As the owner for the last 5 years, it has been awesome to see clients come into the studio with little or no training experience, and be able to change their lives by improving their lifestyle habits, which ultimately leads them to be fitter and healthier.
I grew up on the south coast, returning here after doing nearly 15 years of service in the Navy. I love the people in Wollongong and have created some great friendships here through F45 Wollongong. It has all that you need which a big city might have, without crowds and too much traffic! And the beaches are pretty awesome too.” – Ben from Wollongong CBD F45 Training
