8 Fun and Unique Exercise Ideas For People Who Hate Working Out

From indoor rock climbing to aerial yoga.

Some people can’t function throughout the day without working for their daily dose of endorphins, while others can’t stand the idea of spending an hour or more sweating at the gym. Thankfully, over the past few years, fitness studios have been offering more innovative and unique workouts for people who need a little bit of a push to stay active.

Trampoline parks have been popular for quite some time now and over the years, some of these family-friendly spaces have introduced a selection of fun activities that allow customers to break a sweat. For those who don’t fancy the outdoors so much, indoor rock climbing is the perfect workout for you — you’d get to focus on toning and strengthening your arm and leg muscles. Yoga has been a classic for the longest time and fitness studios have found a way to make the practice more interesting by incorporating paddleboarding and aerial aerobics into their programs.

If you’re looking to try out a new routine in the new year, we’ve rounded up the eight best gym alternative workouts below.

If practice makes perfect, and falling is a part of lead climbing…. yup that’s right, member @veronicadelara getting in the mental reps with some practice falls. Climbing with the fear of falling, or rather the fear of not knowing what it’ll be like, is like climbing with 10 extra pounds. Shameless plug in T-minus 3…2…1… So check out our lead class!!! Wether you’re learning for the 1st time or are in need of a refresher, our class has value for everyone. You’ll master lead belaying, lead climbing and of course lead falling. By the end you’ll be so good you’ll be quoting the words of the great Buzz Lightyear “It’s not flying, it’s falling with style” #the #fight #against #gravity #is #real #climbing #orangecounty #rockclimbing
