Gone Gym: 6 Fitness Facilities To Check Out Instead

Rashi posted on 23 January

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 tried four of the six below, 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

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.

Gyms

C-75 Shivalik, Near Panchsheel Park, New Delhi

CrossFit Himalaya

CrossFit classes are super intense, and comprise 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 – there’s nowhere else you would rather be.

Reebok Crossfit Robust

Reebok Crossfit is instructed by the highly qualified Kamal Chikara. They follow 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.

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

Fitnesolution

Although their focus is more on private classes and one-on-one sessions, they host regular boot camps in their studio, comprising military drills. Think a lot of planks, legs, dull walks, camel walks, and horse gallops. Sounds infinitely better than 10 minutes on the treadmill at 6.5.

Best news yet, she’ll time your classes as per your requirements. Each class can hold up to 20 people, in case you’d like to get your friends and family involved. They also offer yoga, Pilates and much more.
