Jukari Fit to Fly: Reebok and Cirque du Soleil Team Up

Flying through the air might scare the daylights out of some people, but I happen to find it pretty appealing. And when paired with a fitness element, it seems like it could be a really creative way to work out. Reebok and Cirque du Soleil have joined forces to design a new gym workout called Jukari Fit to Fly, which combines suspension and cardio training into a fun one-hour class.

The class is based on a piece of equipment called the FlySet, and the companies call it "a workout that gives the sensation of flying while strengthening and lengthening the body through cardio, strength, balance and core training." Sounds like fun, right? That seems to be the whole point, as the brands say their main goal is making fitness fun again for women.

Jukari will be rolled out to Equinox gyms in 14 cities around the world to start, and if the concept catches on, I think we can expect to see Jukari classes in more cities. Reebok is hosting a competition that awards you and a friend with a trip to try the Jukari Fit to Fly workout in a major European city. To see a video that offers a little sneak peek of the class,

I've always wanted to try the Yoga Wings thing I see advertised while I'm waiting for my train home! I don't belong to the gym that has it, though.

this reminds me of anti-gravity yoga with wings at crunch

Oh my gosh... this sounds utterly immense. I would love to try this out! I'm a non-believer in gym memberships, but this could sway me... as long as it's not too steep. When is it coming to London?

Sounds awesome! Probably won't see it in Aus for quite a while though, and even if it ever gets here I'm sure it will be astronomically expensive.

it's pretty upsetting that 1- you have to be a resident in a european country to be a part of the contest and 2- equinox gyms are only located in a few cities in the u.s. when are those of us who don't live in a major city going to be able to join clubs that offer these interesting classes?

It looks like a lot of fun, but I expecting it to be a little more about acrobacies and a little less about aerobics. Still, I think it's a pretty good ideia!
