Ever since the beginning of their relationship, Ben and Emily Buckingham dreamed of owning and operating a business. Between the birth of their first child and the pandemic causing Ben’s work to be remote, the couple had a unique opportunity to move back to the Midwest and open the first F45 studio in the Dakotas. F45 has a global footprint in 65 countries and is backed by several celebrities and athletes including Mark Wahlberg, David Beckham and Gunnar Peterson.
While Ben supports the business with back office operations, Emily uses her expertise in sports medicine to drive the business forward as Director of Fitness and Studio Performance.
F45 workouts are designed and programmed by leading training professionals and offer functional 45-minute workouts that are effective, fun and community-driven that are open to anyone.
“We are able to meet people where they are at when they walk into the studio. You may see an elite-level athlete working out next to someone who has never before set foot in the gym. BOTH individuals will be challenged and see the results they desire,” Emily said.
The F in F45 stands for functional training, which involves training for activities performed in daily life, allowing gym-goers to feel stronger in all aspects of their lives.
