About REUNION Training:
REUNION Training is the ultimate group training experience. Founded by Luke Istomin, an elite and world class fitness professional, REUNION draws from Luke’s unique juxtaposition of having trained global elite celebrities, athletes, and leaders, and co-founding the largest group training model, F45 Training.
REUNION Training has been designed to REDEFINE what it truly means to be functional, healthy and active.
We aren’t here to waste anyone’s time with pointless workouts focused only on sweating and feeling exhausted – this style of training has limited longevity, increasing the risk of injury and exhaustion, not to mention reduced motivation.
We design our workouts with PURPOSE and ensure our members enjoy tangible results in order to track their progress. We concentrate on the primal movement patterns the body is physically capable of and designed to perform, with the overarching goal to build a solid foundation of strength and endurance.
Through our onboarding process we ensure you are properly supported from the get go! From training newcomers, to transitioning gym goers, to elite or experienced trainers, we will set you up on a path based on your current level of fitness, and in turn accelerate you towards your chosen goals.
Simply put, our goal is to have you reach your capabilities and bullet proof your body from potential injuries!
