Water Cycle At Water Resist
Buderim, Caloundra, Maroochydore and Noosa
You enjoy swimming and cycling, so why not have both. During a water cycle session at Water Resist, you’ll submerge yourself on to a stationary bike and use all the pedal power you can muster into challenging sprints, arm and chest exercises. Due to its aquatic nature, water cycling is low impact on your joints, meaning maximum benefits for minimum pain.
Indian Clubs At Powerlife Whole Health Studios
Yep, you read correctly; Indian club workouts are a thing and with benefits of improved strength and coordination, we’re totally keen. An ancient full-body practice of guided energetic movements with weighted clubs in hands, clubbing has re-entered the fitness scene with a promise to activate your core and have you comfortably sliding back into those skinny jeans before the cooler months land. Feed that intrigue at Powerlife Whole Health Studios and give this new Sunshine Coast fitness class a go.
Boxfit At Caloundra City Boxing
You’ve had your fair share of pool-floating this summer, now it’s time to channel your inner butterfly by floating right into a boxfit class at Caloundra City Boxing. These guys will have you pounding through 90-minutes of jabs, sprints, burpees and squats. It’ll be torture, but we all know that’s where the magic of a shredded bod happens. Suck it up, you’ll be stinging like a bee in no time.
Aerial Yoga at CircStudios
If you wanna soar through your New Year goals, you must be willing to let go of everything that weighs you down, and at Circ Studios, gravity is no exception. Pop on in for an aerial yoga class where poses are performed within the bounds of a suspended silk hammock. Good for spinal health, flexibility, mindfulness and relaxation, aerial yoga is an absolute winner when trying to balance your mind, body and soul.
Strongman Challenge Course At The Farm
If you’ve ever thought mid-Survivor that you could complete the obstacles better than the contestants, the Strongman Challenge course at The Farm in Nambour is for you. The challenging sessions are hosted by Luke, a former set builder for Survivor, so you already know you’re going to be pushed through the paces of a gruelling obstacle course. Together with your team of fitspos, prepare to move heavyweight tyres, carry logs and pull tractors in a farm setting. But, don’t be fooled, there’s nothing tranquil about The Farm workouts, they’re totally going to make you sweat until fat formation stops in its tracks.
Fitness club royalty, F45 has been a player on the scene for some time with its High Intensity Interval Training. For the rare few unfamiliar with the powerhouse brand, it’s the place to go for no-fuss 45-minute workouts that suit every level of fitness. The week’s classes are split amongst cardio and resistance with an epic Hollywood sesh on a Saturday that combines both styles. If you’re the type of person who’s best motivated when surrounded by like-minded folk, the F45 ‘team training, life changing’ mantra proves this is the ideal energy outlet for you.
Daily SUP At Noosa Stand Up Paddle
When it comes to sunny days on the Sunshine Coast, Mother Nature is consistently generous, so why not nail your fitness goals outdoors with a weekly SUP with Noosa Stand Up Paddle? Allow yourself half an hour to learn the basics before setting your sights beyond the flat-water into the waves of Noosa Heads and beyond. Time it right and you may just score a golden tan to complement those newly formed abs.
