LF3

What is LF3?

LF3 stands for Lifestyle Fitness, based on three core pillars: Be Strong | Be Healthy | Be Resilient.
LF3 is Altea’s results-based, small-group training and digital fitness solution. Think of LF3 as the place to get a customized 7-day training plan based on your goals and use small group training sessions to reach those goals. LF3 is a bridge between personal training and studio fitness classes. You will experience the energy of the group with the individual coaching of personal trainers. LF3 has two studios, one focusing on strength and the other prioritizing conditioning. Studio 1 will have lots of weights, bars and plates, while studio 2 will have 20 treadmills and functional fitness equipment pieces. You will never do the same workout twice with LF3; each day of the week will have a different variation of strength or conditioning based on the training phase the coaches are guiding our members through.

Are Small Group Training classes worth it?

Yes, small group training classes can be worth it for many people looking to improve their physical fitness and achieve their goals. Here are some reasons why:

Personalized attention: With smaller class sizes, trainers can provide more individualized attention and instruction, helping participants to improve their form and technique.

Motivation and accountability: Group training classes can provide a supportive and motivating environment, where participants can encourage and push each other towards their fitness goals.

Cost-effective: Small group training classes can be a more cost-effective alternative to one-on-one personal training sessions.

Social aspect: Group training classes can be a great way to meet new people and build a sense of community around fitness.

Variety of exercises: Small group training classes can offer a variety of exercises and workouts, which can help keep participants engaged and challenged.
