Stretching: The truth
I definitely found that while every class has options to allow people of all fitness levels to participate and take it at their own pace, this selection of classes is fairly intense.
Ultimately, whether on a trampoline, in a pool, using TRX or in a boxing ring, the focus on similar movements such as planking, squats, push-ups and sit-ups is consistent, but the varied environments and circuit styles is stimulating and definitely worth a go!
If I had to pick favourites, I’d say you can’t beat the empowering feeling of boxing at 9Round, but Bounce is the best-value calorie killer and a super mood-enhancer.
What a couple of weeks! Some may not think back-to-back classes is fun, but it has been interesting. I didn’t love all the classes, but that may be down to trying out so many in such a short period of time. Hardest was Bounce – it’s deceptively difficult. Over time, my strength and endurance would improve, but on the day, I was beaten. The biggest surprise was poi spinning: Not the most challenging physically, but in terms of concentration and coordination the hardest, and something I had never done before.
The one that I would do again and again is 9Round. Who doesn’t love to punch things after a stressful day in the office?
