It’s safe to work under the assumption that ninety percent of us have fitness as a resolution this year, and while we’ve done the treadmills, lay down on the questionable yoga mats and waited in endless lines at the gym to use a machine, we here at LBB decided to ditch the gym memberships, switch it up and if we were to be honest, look for ANYTHING that works. After having tried 4 of the 6 below, we thought we’d share some these awesome facilities with you.

Outdoor Fitness Boot Camp at Siri Fort Sports Complex 

Hands down one of the best training/sport facilities in the city, Sirifort plays venue to Krish Fitness Academy, which holds marathon training sessions, sports conditioning, bootcamp, and metabolic conditioning. As an erstwhile boot camp member, LBB has not a shred of doubt when we say, it’s highly effective, super dynamic, and an interesting switch-up to the gym. Also-weather is near perfect.

Where: Calisthenics Area, Siri Fort Sports Complex; Contact: 9811222747, 9999919573

When: Tuesday to Sunday; 6.30am to 10am and 5.30pm to 8.30pm.

After a sign up, you’re entitled to 12 personal training sessions a month, all at the hands of one of the highly qualified, certified, and super set of trainers. 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 and pilates classes.

Crossfit-himalaya Gone Gym | 6 Fitness Facilities to Check out Instead

CrossFit Himalaya 

Again, we’ve been here. Wow, we should have been body builders by now. 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, ten burpees in two minutes? Just a casual day in a CrossFit class. For the competitive – there’s nowhere else you would rather be.

Where: CrossFit Himalaya, D-108 Chattarpur Hills; Contact: 9582575700

When: Monday, Wednesday and Friday; 6.30am to 8.30am and 6pm to 8.30pm; Saturday 7am – 9am and 6pm – 8.30pm

Reebok_02 Gone Gym | 6 Fitness Facilities to Check out Instead

Reebok Crossfit Robust

Another CrossFit facility or box as the professionals call it, Reebok Crossfit is instructed by 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 to the world of Crossfit. 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.

Where: 7 Arjun Nagar, Bhishm Pitama Marg, Kotla Mubarakpur; Contact: 9891428982

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 t0 20 people, in case you’d like to get your friends and family involved.
