FHIT aims to lead the way in the ever-changing $480 million health and wellness industry in Australia. At its core, FHIT is about real results for real bodies by achieving greater levels of overall health, fitness, mobility and functional movement. The rising demand for personal training has been fueled by increasing awareness of the importance of healthy, active lifestyles.
Lauren started FHIT from her own experience, finding it difficult to balance work demands while on global tours performing, she had little time to keep up her workout routine at the gym. Where possible, she improvised during breaks she had and developed the FHIT concept.
“Being time poor, where possible I continued my training, backstage in theatres, hotel rooms, and car-parks. This was all about making the best of whatever environment I was in and creating a strong dedication to health and fitness. This led to FHIT, where real fitness and strength didn’t require me to access a gym or need any equipment,” said Lauren.
With FHIT, users will have access to health and fitness advice where and when they want it! Be it at home, at work, or whilst traveling, all you need is an internet connection, and you’re set! No equipment, no gym, just a personal coach who happens to be Lauren Hannaford. Subscribers also receive special personalised messages from Lauren Hannaford, regular blog updates and personal check-in messages to keep users in check, motivated and on track!
“These workouts combine my knowledge of core gymnastics techniques, the use of interval training and my qualifications as a personal trainer.” -Lauren Hannaford
The FHIT workout video library offers three phases of training programs at various levels of intensity. The workouts range from 15 to 30 and 45-minutes, and there are also quick add-on options of 5 and 7-minute burner workouts.
Each FHIT phase takes users on a natural fitness journey at their own pace increasing in intensity as they progress. For those who prefer higher intensity workouts, FHIT also offers a more rigorous 30 and 45-minute option. The workouts focus on bodyweight training techniques to help members achieve their results.
To supplement the daily exercise program, Lauren has partnered with qualified nutritionists to incorporate meal plans to support a healthy lifestyle. Regular exercise also has the positive effect of stimulating chemicals in the brain to improve the mood and the parts responsible for memory and learning in which Psychologist Brian Langsworth offers mindfulness advice and exercises.
