Trapeze ribbons and tires: Two unique workouts to help you keep your resolution
It's official. The holidays are over and if you packed on a few pounds during the festivities we found a few unique workouts to get you back into shape.
Exercise your creativity while you feel the burn at Circus School of Arizona in Scottsdale. This workout uses trapeze ribbons hanging from the ceiling to increase strength and flexibility; and it has another benefit.
"You don't have to necessarily do your pushups or sit ups at the end of class because you've been working so hard on the equipment the entire time," said coach Lauren Breunig.
At first glance it looks like you'll need experience to give this a try, but Breunig says that's not the case.
"A lot of people are a little bit nervous about trying this for the first time; maybe they think they don't have the right strength, the right flexibility, but once they get in here, once they try a class, touch the fabric of the trapeze, they're hooked," said Breunig.
You can try it for yourself on Saturday, Jan. 12, 2013 when Amenzone Fitness brings Training For Life to The Duce in downtown Phoenix (525 S. Central). Enjoy the same workout for free, check-in starts at 10 a.m.
