MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s the second full week into the New Year and those of you with resolutions to lose weight may already be getting a little bored. That’s why the WCCO Morning Show went flying into some unique workouts. For Thursday, Natalie Nyhus definitely went outside the box — an aerobics class held completely on trampolines.
If you really want to blow up your workout routine, make like the kids and jump around. Sky Zone indoor trampoline park is offering fitness classes for adults.
“Sky Zone fitness is a super effective and fun workout. We focus on cardio, resistance, plyometrics as well as strength,” Sky Zone fitness instructor Kristy Adams said.
All of that on trampolines, because … duh, fun!
“We’re going to save you from your treadmill here. We are going to keep you moving. We are going to keep your energy up,” Adams said.
The result is a fast-paced class, and a super high-calorie burn — up to 1,000 of them in an hour-long class. Many who practice this feel like they’ve taken a welcome return to their childhood.
“I think that’s what pulls people in. They get to feel that same way as they did when they were little,” Adams said.
But don’t let the fun fool you. It’s a challenge.
If you lose your concentration, you could end up face first. But Adams says if you fall, you deserve congratulations, because that means you’re trying.
“Our motto is not to take yourself too seriously. It doesn’t matter how you look on the trampolines, it’s how you feel when you’re done,” Adams said.
Modifications are offered during the class, but Nyhus said she found this workout was great for those with knee or joint pain. Cost is $12 per class.
