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.
