Exercising outside of the box
Going to the gym, running on a treadmill and lifting weights isn’t for everyone. Just like food is bio-individual, so is exercise. This recent New York Times article talks about how gyms are expanding what they offer to entice people to sign up and get moving!
Check out some of these classes:
Jukari Fit to Fly: uses modified circus equipment as part of a cardiovascular workout
AntiGravity Yoga Wings class: students hang upside down from diaphanous hammocks suspended from the ceiling, their feet twisted in the fabric, as they attempt to execute an inversion by flipping into a bat-like
How cool! Health club executives say they are creating more entertaining workouts, so it’s not just about sweating, but also about having fun. Even if you have a set workout routine, sometimes it’s good to switch it up a little. If you are stuck in a rut and just can’t get yourself to the gym because the thought of doing a spinning or conditioning class bores you, check out your local gym to see if they have any new and fun classes.
Let us know what fun classes you have taken.
