Bungee Workout™: the gravity defying class taking the international fitness world by storm. You may have spotted the video while scrolling through Facebook. A room full of people plunging to the ground, then flying through the air. Bungee Workout, a dance and fitness combination class, has been widely discussed over social media in recent months, and has been gaining much anticipation and momentum as the next big thing to hit the local fitness scene. Many are looking forward to adding it to their workout regimen. The class is an amazing resistance training and full body cardio workout. It works and tones almost every muscle in your body, focusing on your core strength. The bungee cord is attached to the back of the hip harness, allowing you to move freely and access atheletic and otherwise physically unattainable moves. The powerful bungee cord is also a potent resistance training tool, used to enhance overall muscle toning and fitness performance. It provides safe, secure, yet challenging resistance for strengthening and sculpting muscles at the same time. The aerial component gives a total body cardio workout that leverages gravity and body weight. You are dripping sweat by the end of the class, but you don’t realize how hard you have worked because it is so much fun.
And did we mention – you get to fly.
We highly recommend bringing a towel and a spare t-shirt, and be prepared to sweat. All said, it’s essentially a resistance class designed around your secret childhood fantasy of leaping like Spiderman, with the grace of an aerial artiste, set to the high energy beat of the latest pop music.* Contraindications listed on the online booking site*
