Reebok has teamed up with the awe -inspiring Cirque du Soleil to create a fun new total body workout created for a new piece of fitness equipment known as the FlySet.
The equipment is designed to give the user the sense of flying while the entire body is worked through a mixture of cardio, balance, strength, and core training. Suspension, or trapeze style workouts, Jukari classes are designed to make you stretch, lift your own body weight, and tone muscles through swinging and strategically positioning your body using the FlySet.
You can think of a Flyset like a trapeze, but it has a few adjustments to make it an ideal piece of fitness equipment. The durable ropes are covered with nylon and are adjustable for different body heights and different fitness moves. There is also a 360 degree swivel point to which the Fly Set is attached, allowing for full range of motion exercises.
Jukari is different from other suspension classes, such as TRX, in that it includes cardiovascular and plyometric exercises and conditioning. Using the FlySet suspension system you can run, lunge, jump, spin, hang, push, pull, and so much more. The variety of fitness and workout combinations in Jukari is only as limited as your instructor’s experience and imagination.
Think it sounds too easy, it’s not. You’ll work up a sweat, but you’ll have a great time doing it. Sound impossible, not when flying with your workout class in sync. You’ll have a blast while working every major muscle group.
If you have ever seen a performance by Cirque du Soleil you know the amount of body strength, conditioning, and control the performers must have to perform seemingly impossible tricks using their body. This forms the basic principle of Reebok’s Jukari Fit to Fly fitness classes.
Although I’m quite sure the classes are nothing in comparison to the workouts and fitness level of Cirque du Soleil performers, but it is a new workout that will challenge your muscle and mind to learn and execute new moves, tone your body, and work on tightly controlled muscle movements.
Reebok Jukari Fit to Fly classes using a FlySet make me think of Pilates, aerobics, body sculpting and flexibility classes all rolled into one using the FlySet as your primary piece of fitness equipment. Jukari enable you to take stretching and body toning to an entirely new level.
Jukari Fit to Fly classes are currently available only in limited areas, but bringing fun back to fitness has the promise to make this class a raging success for Reebok and Cirque de Soleil. According to Reebok, that was their purpose to make fitness fun for women.
I’m pushing for Fit to Fly classes in my local gym. This is a fun fitness workout that I look forward to implementing into my routine.
