‘F45 Training’ Teases New Gym at Newish 145 Ludlow Condo Development

Posted on: November 15th, 2017 at 5:17 am by

In the year since its completion, the Hell Square luxury condo at 145 Ludlow Street has been without a commercial tenant. Sitting vacant until the right deep-pocketed business came along willing to pay the rent. None other than a boutique gym, actually.

A new franchise location of the F45 Training brand just signed a lease for the space. Teaser signage arrived earlier this week. Precise opening date is not yet known, though. The website only indicates the “nebulous” coming soon announcement.

About the F45 studio

The concept is simple: our studios all over the world offer a 45 minute High-Intensity, Circuit Training workout class for our studio members. We have developed 27 different 45 minute workouts, with more currently in development. Our studios offer the same class at different times throughout the day. Every day throughout the week offers a different 45 minute workout. The workouts are created by the F45 Athletics and Peak Performance Department from a database of over 3,000 different exercises, so our members never get the same workout twice.

As previously reported, 145 Ludlow received its new lease on life in June 2013 when the architecture firm of David Howell purchased the mid-block property for $5.7 million. Its role as vacant lot (and Timeshare Backyard) expired when construction began shortly thereafter.

Super-sized, at that. Indeed, take a […]
