6 fun and new ways to get fit
From boxing to trampolining to spinning, The Weekly breaks down the top fitness trends according to your workout personality
Total Gym Bunny Women’s Boxing Class at TNT Kickboxing
If you think real women shouldn’t throw punches, then this powerful class will make you change your mind. If you’re already a veteran gym-goer and know your way around power cages and benches, move out of your comfort zone with a little closeup combat. Not convinced? Victoria’s Secret Angels, Gigi Hadid and Adriana Lima, all swear by boxing to keep their bodies strong and lean.
Adrenaline Junkie Jumping Fitness Malaysia
Trampolining is redefining the way Malaysians exercise. Whether you are just a beginner or an experienced fitness buff, it allows you to have an intense cardio workout and is said to be 70 per cent more effective at burning calories and increasing the heart rate than running or sprinting alone. It’s also super-low impact, which is great for the lymphatic system.
Mindful Meditator Hot Hatha at Life Hot Yoga
Stress less by making your workout more mindful, and turn your awareness inside so you can reap the benefits of mental exercise. At Life Hot Yoga, expect to Zen out at this gentle class that focuses on posture alignment to enhance muscle tone, flexibility, and calming the mind through the application of breath work and relaxation techniques. Namaste!
Mega Marathoner MY-Run
Calling all pavement pounders! Training for your next marathon is no joke, so prepare yourself in the best way possible with this running group. This 2,273-people strong club has twice-weekly runs and have been active since 2011. The sessions will also allow you to enjoy the company of likeminded individuals in between lots and lots of actual running!
Graceful Go-Getter Xtend Barre at Urban Spring
Turn your poise levels up a notch with this exhilarating workout inspired by ballet, yoga, Pilates and strength training. Xtend Barre’s classes will give you a svelte and toned figure in next to no time at all. Look cool as you sweat it up with a full range of dynamic movements that allow you to build strength, grace and body control – just like a ballerina.
Fit Fashionista Spin classes at Flycycle
Take athleisure to new heights at Flycycle, where you’ll come to flaunt your designer gear but stay for their on-the-bike workouts that mash cardio together with upper body and core work for a seriously slimming session. Either way, Flycycle proves that spinning is here to stay, and continues to gather speed with a growing fan base in Malaysia.
