    Coincidentally I recently started F45 myself. It is quite expensive, $66 a week on a casual plan, $60 if you commit to at least 6 months. Really have to go 4+ times a week to justify the cost.
    Biggest benefit is the same as you get with something like Crossfit - most of the positives of personal training at a lower (albeit still high) price point.
    Another difference for F45 vs other gyms is that everything runs like clockwork. The classes are exactly 45 minutes, every exercise and even the warmups are timed to the second. They cycle through a ton of different movements in every class so they aren't boring/you don't get stuck on something you hate for more than a couple of minutes. You can pace yourself to make the classes harder or easier but the coaching side of it isn't great (there isn't really time to focus much on teaching). Crossfit was much better for the coaching side of things in my experience.

    Honestly though you could get a cheap exercise bike or rowing machine for the cost of a couple weeks of F45 and sit it in front of the television while you watch Netflix or whatever.

    Or better yet... maybe you can figure out a way to put one of those ultra-compact treadmills under a pinball machine

                Mate, not sure what you are currently doing to lose weight, but you should be losing a lot more than that per week. You may have to look at how to increase your metabolism. I'm guessing you might have gone too hard on lowering your calorie intake and little exercising causing your body to go into survival mode meaning its storing what it can rather than burning. That's where the exercise part will force the body to burn. Eating can help in losing weight believe it or not.

                You might need to talk to your doctor and get a referral to a dietician which may help.

                    Like old mate above said.
                    Get your metabolism up.
                    45 mins walk will do it. No need to bust your arse. Do it everyday you can.
                    Eat dinner early then go for a walk. That way you are burning the energy, Not storing it
                    You can do any exercise you want but 45 mins at least. Swimming pool yoga or whatever its called, is a good low impact but high yield exercise with classes in the evening

                    AQUA AEROBICS Maybe

                        Rule No.1 Motivation, then a routine and keep with it, thats the hard part so that refers back to rule 1.
                        Eat lots of chiles that helps your metabolism but will burn your bum bum and make you sweat.
