| July 12, 2022 | 0 Comments

Group training gym F45 is coming to 1713 Whetstone Way at McHenry Row in Locust Point. F45 takes over a space vacated by Charm City Run last year.

F45, which started in Australia in 2012, is now based in Austin, Texas and has more than 1,750 locations around the world. F45 has a location in Fells Point and others in the Baltimore metro area.

Actor and fitness enthusiast Mark Wahlberg became an investor in F45 in 2019.

F45, which stands for Functional 45, offers 45-minute High Intensity Interval Training (H.I.I.T) classes. It offers memberships as well as drop-in class options.

F45 has not yet announced when the McHenry Row location will open, but it is already marketing on Facebook.

F45 is the second national fitness brand in the process of opening in South Baltimore as Orangetheory Fitness is under construction on a location at Hanover Cross Street in Sharp-Leadenhall.

While McHenry Row lost eight businesses since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the retail at the mixed-use development is now fully-leased. New tenants include Studio 921, Mr. Lee’s Dry Cleaning, Yes Chef MarketplaceEuropean Wax CenterNovaCare Rehabilitation, and Tribe Cycle. Work has also begun on a yet-be-announced restaurant that will take the space vacated by World of Beer.
