Fitness-goers will be able to enjoy the new F45 studio for a drop-in fee, with a discount extended to Hilton Honors members and existing F45 members.
“We’re thrilled to bring the F45 experience to Hilton Austin’s guests and to our members in the surrounding Austin community,” said Adam Gilchrist, President, CEO and Chairman of F45. “We are excited about our partnership with Hilton Austin as it marks an important milestone in our ongoing efforts to make F45’s high-powered classes accessible to more people.”
