Looking for a fat-burning, body-sculpting activity that’ll keep you coming back? South Australian Style’s resident fitness guru, Emily Hartley, test drives a fun new way to stay fit. Introducing Bungee Core Fitness.
What is a bungee workout?
Bungee Core Fitness is the first bungee workout studio in South Australia. It’s a high intensity group class during which a bungee cord is attached to your waist, allowing you to move in ways and reach heights you never thought possible. Each class contains a series of core, resistance, flexibility and cardiovascular exercises.
What to expect
At the beginning of the class, everyone is fitted with a harness – you want to get this part right to ensure a safe and comfortable bungee experience. Once fitted, you then progress to a warm-up. This includes a series of stretches, strength and a range of motion exercises, which is a great way to adjust and familiarise yourself with the variety of different movements, shapes and motions your body will make. Now comes the fun part – bungee time! You are connected to the bungee, an extra strong springy cord, by your harness which is perfectly adjusted to your height and body weight for maximal bounciness.
Who’s it for?
This class is designed for anyone from beginner to advanced. Being a beginner, we started with the basics and slowly built up, layer by layer, from star jumps to push-ups to flying tuck jumps until eventually nailing upside-down handstands! As the class progresses you start to build up confidence and get a little more adventurous with each bounce.
What we loved
The best thing about this class is that you’re so focused on bouncing around, moving your body in different ways (even back-to-front and upside down) that by the time you’re finished you’re red-faced, a little sweaty and left wondering where the time went!
Bungee Core Fitness also offers 1:1 PT, Boxing, HIIT and Functional Fitness classes if you’re after an extra burn in your week’s workout. Plus they also offer self-defence classes for kids, so there really is no excuse not to get the whole family involved.
How much does it cost?
$25 per casual class or take advantage of exclusive offers with a Bungee Core Fitness membership.
Will we be back?
Absolutely, just give me a moment for my muscles to recover! This is a unique style of fitness to add into your weekly routine or even as a fun activity shared with friends or work colleagues.
