On Saturday, I headed over to Liberty Village to check out this hour-long, full-body workout. All exercises are led by trained instructors and performed on a specially designed piece of equipment called the FlySet. Needless to say, the music was upbeat and awesome - of course, Cirque du Soleil themed.
I pranced around, did leaps in the air, twirled and spun... laughing AND totally forgetting I was at the gym... working out! JUKARI really is a unique fitness experience that gives the sensation of flying while strengthening and lengthening the body through cardio, strength, balance and core training. It suits all fitness levels and like yoga/palates, the exercises can be adjusted to increase the level of challenge.
Classes are now available at Kingwest Fitness on a drop-in basis. $10 for gym members and $20 for non-members. Please contact Jay at (416) 533-5464 for further details on package deals and scheduling.
