Getting sweaty with football superstar David Beckham sounds like something we’d definitely be into – though sadly it’s also highly unlikely.
Unless you consider that F45 Training is now offering up something pretty close… well, sort of.
The global fitness brand has announced the launch of its new workout DB45, created by David Beckham himself, alongside Chief of Athletics and Hollywood trainer, Gunnar Peterson.
The 11-station, football-inspired cardio class combines exercises Beckham used in past training sessions, with stations representing typical football positions including Goal, Defence, Mid-Field, and Attack.
“For me, training as part of a team has always been my favourite way to workout and my DB45 program is influenced by exercises I did as a professional football player,” Beckham said.
“I’m excited for the F45 community to finally be able to try out [my workout].”
Paying homage to Beckham’s iconic jersey numbers from his football career, the set timings will alternate between 32 seconds work, 15 seconds rest, and 23 seconds work, followed by 20 seconds rest.
Members will then complete the ultimate finisher with seven x 30-second bodyweight exercises.
“Working with a professional athlete like David Beckham to create DB45 has been great fun and offers a once in a lifetime opportunity for the F45 community to train like an iconic athlete,” F45 Chief of Athletics Gunnar Peterson said, adding people are going to be “in for a lot of fun” with this workout.
F45 was first founded in Sydney in 2013, and now has 1,749 studios across 67 countries.
David Beckham was first announced as an ambassador for the brand in 2021. At the time he shared the news on social media, crediting the high-intensity interval training regimen as helping him get into his “best shape” since he retired from his superstar soccer career in 2013.
