Inspired by his impressive career, DB45 combines exercises Beckham used in past training sessions. Incorporating explosive, power-focused, multi-directional exercises, this 45-minute workout will see F45ers complete two sets in each station, moving through a “follow the leader,” football-inspired 4:4:2 class formation, with stations representing typical football positions including Goal, Defence, Mid-Field, and Attack.

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. Users will complete the ultimate finisher with 7 x 30 second bodyweight exercises.

David Beckham comments: “I have loved working alongside Gunnar and the F45 team to create DB45, my first signature workout. For me, training as part of a team has always been my favourite way to work out, and my DB45 programme is influenced by exercises I did as a professional football player. F45 always brings innovative and effective workouts to the timetable, and I’m excited for the F45 community to finally be able to try out mine.”

“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,” said Gunnar Peterson, F45’s Chief of Athletics and renowned Hollywood trainer. “DB45 offers something unique to the F45 timetable. It’s the first football-inspired class for F45, which combines the unique functional exercises that make F45 so great, as well as honouring Beckham’s career – the F45 community is in for a lot of fun with this workout.”
