It’s only a few sleeps until summer is officially here. If you’re like us and your summer bod isn’t quite ready, we’ve found some of the coolest fitness trends you’ll actually want to do!
If you’re anything like us and you find yourself falling asleep in your regular old yoga class, we’ve got something for you! It’s loud, it’s fun and you get to break it down to all your favourite Hip Hop artists. We’re talking the likes of Notorious B.I.G, Yeezy and Queen B.

It’s not exactly calorie burning intensity, but mental health is just as important as a killer booty, right? Spend 60 minutes in a sensory deprivation tank floating in total darkness. Not having to fight gravity gives your muscles, joints and bones a much needed break and lets your body focus all that energy into healing and introspection. We know it sounds weird, but you have to try it!

Skyfit at Sky Zone
Apparently 10 minutes on a trampoline will burn as many calories as a 30 minute jog! Hey, we’re willing to try anything. Skyfit group classes improve upper and lower body strength and cardiovascular endurance as well as improving balance and coordination. Take your pick of seven different classes.

Say what? Think yoga meets trapeze. But no need to fear, it’s supposed to be easier than a regular yoga class because the AntiGravity Hammock supports your weight while you get all the benefits or stretching out those tired muscles. There’s different levels of classes so even those of us who haven’t got our summer body ready yet will do just fine.
Whether you’ve never danced before (who are you kidding, we’ve seen you on a Saturday night shaking that thang) or you’re a pro, Mad Dance House has a class for you. Kick off your weekend with a sweat session on Half Price Friday.

Circa Training Centre
For something a little different this hump day, check out Circa’s Hoot Camp. Incorporating tumbling, trapeze, tissue, tightwire and acrobalance it’ll be nothing like a workout you’ve ever done before.

If you’re down with the yoga trend but want to try something a little different and make the most of this weather, SUP Yoga could be your new best friend. A paddle board is essentially a floating yoga mat providing the ultimate core workout to maintain balance and posture on the water. Classes include a paddle out to sea for an awesome warm up before returning to the shallows to try out your best yoga poses.
