Happy New Year everyone – if you’re reading this, it’s time to put down the Ferrero Rocher. You’re not the first, and you certainly won’t be the last person avoiding hitting the dreaded treadmill. So, we decided to do a little research that may just entice you to get back in to the swing of things. Here at USPAAH, we’re ready to start 2018 a little differently to last… Keep reading for best alternative fitness classes in London!
Aerial Hoop with Flying Fantastic
When we first saw Aerial, we imagined a Disney princess themed class and what a class that could have been… Reality check: The aerial hoop is a circular steel apparatus rigged from the ceiling, designed to enable you to perform dynamic tricks, swings, spins and more. Great for building strength, and increasing flexibility (thank us later;)), this full body workout will strengthen your core muscles and upper body strength like no other classes out there. We dare you to try it.
House of Voga
Described as “The haute couture of fitness”, and we couldn’t agree more. House of Voga is the brainchild of set designer Juliet Murrell, who qualified as a yoga instructor to restore her energy levels after a bout of bad health. Merging Yoga and the revolutionary Voguing dance style, Voga is the one for you if you enjoy yoga but want a cardio workout too. Did someone say Paris Is Burning? Fitness has never felt so fabulous!
As you’ve probably heard, HIIT classes and workouts can be the most beneficial as not only are they quick but they work wonders for the waistline. FloatFit classes take the concept of HIIT and add all the fun and slippery stuff to the mix – (we’re talking water boards and a pool guys!). There are over 1,500 FloatFit instructors worldwide, and plenty of places to try out classes in London. Go for HIIT for a full body workout, or Float Fit Yoga if you’re wanting a more chilled entrance to exercise this January.
Reshape at 1Rebel
Okay so this one… you’re going to FEEL it. If you want to feel the burn then go for this class and break your barriers, we did… we almost cried BUT the accomplishment we felt afterwards was through the roof! Prepare for 45 minutes of mental and physical intensity, with back to back sets of weighted squats, lunges and more, alongside running sessions on the latest Woodway 4Front treadmills. Prepare to push your body to limits you didn’t know existed, and then treat yourself to their Roots & Bulbs’ cold-pressed juice bar.
