Can't Gym? Check out These 10 Fitness Facilities Instead

    It’s safe to work under the assumption that 90 per cent of us have fitness as a resolution this year, and while we’ve done the treadmills, lay down on the yoga mats and waited in endless lines at the gym, we at LBB decided to ditch the gym memberships and switch it up.

    After having exhausted our motivation to go to the gym, we thought we’d share some these awesome facilities with you.

    Outdoor Fitness Boot Camp, Siri Fort Sports Complex

    Hands down one of the best training/sport facilities in the city, Siri fort plays venue to Krish Fitness Academy, which holds marathon training sessions, sports conditioning, bootcamp, and metabolic conditioning. It’s highly effective, super dynamic, and an interesting switch-up to the gym.

    When: Thursday and Sunday

    Personal Training At Sumaya

    Sumaya

    Although it has the look and feel of a gym, this is anything but. After you sign up, you’re entitled to 12 personal training sessions a month. As for the rest of the days, we guarantee your trainer will fill them up with intense cardio, right after monthly evaluations that involve measurements and the bane of our existence – a weight check. They also offer yoga, cross training and pilates classes.

    CrossFit Himalaya

    CrossFit classes are super intense and comprise of choreographed sets and repetitions known as Workout of the Day. Think five of you in the same class, all doing the exact same work out, repetitions and number of sets (with varying levels of difficulty), all within a prescribed amount of time. So 10 burpees in two minutes? Just a casual day in a CrossFit class.

    For the competitive ones – there’s nowhere else you would rather be.

    Reebok Crossfit in Gurgaon follows the same CrossFit format – timer, workout of the day, and a lot of strength training. The great part about this particular facility is how they ease you in: If you’re new and intimidated, they’ll put you in a foundation class, give you a chance to learn the ropes, and only then graduate you to the regular WODs. PS- that first trial class is totally free.

    You can sign up for six or three classes a week; the instructor will be able to advise you after an initial fitness assessment.
