Workout Oddity: Anti-Gravity Journeys

If the initial though you had when looking at the above title is one of confusion, I know why! There is a new trend that is filling up classroom of only the trendiest workout locations across the world. This new workout, a term that I use loosely will have you hanging above the floor. Now, get rid of those images that you could have of pull ups or some intense new exercise method. Allow me to collectively burst all of those bubbles at once, because when you hear how they are changing workouts, as we know it, you will probably have to pick yourself back up off of the floor.

hanging outRecently, my local gym had some changing of their employees, bringing our gym crew with some different instructors. It was sort of a sudden change, something that left what new classes would be offered up to the public. I had never heard of a anti-gravity method of exercising before. After first walking everyone into their proper room, I couldn’t fully process what I was taking in. I wasn’t alone, as the other people around me were beginning to starting to complain, I held off my reservations.

Imagine a room that is filled with a horrifying image, straight out of a horror movie. Bodies all lined up in cocoons, doesn’t that sound scary or is that just me? Like something out of the movie Killer Klowns from Outer Space, this is just about what you will be seeing if you sign up to take one of these classes. This is seen as an innovation in the way that people are getting their fit time, I really don’t know what else you can call that.

The wild fact remains, however, that these classes truly are gaining buzz, whether it be positive or negative, it really has the people talking. I would love to sign up for one of these classes to keep the wife off of my back about me when I turn into a couch potato. Let me step it down a little bit on the negativity, I really want to give this exercise trend a fair shake that I feel that it deserves. The pictures that I have seen of people performing these classes does look fun and honestly very relaxing. At least, I would think that it would be relaxing just kind of hanging in the air.

Sure, it could look a bit silly to walk into the room and see these creepy cocoons there. However, I think that it would feel simply awesome to just float, it would possibly make me very sleepy. I also would imagine that I would feel more on board with this class, if they were a bit smaller. Something about sleeping (or at least trying to) around 30 other men and women would make me more than a bit uncomfortable. Perhaps having one of these machines in your room, or somewhere a bit more private, where I wasn’t surrounded by people.

If this kind of class does interest you, these classes are becoming increasingly popular, bring them to a wider audience around the clock. Also, I feel that I need to clarify what this kind of class is clarified as, which is more yoga than an actual exercise. I hear that the yoga routines that they will have you performing will vary in time and intensity. I, personally have never really taken a yoga class myself, so I can’t attest as to how easy or hard these stretches sound.
