Someone wíll fall for you here.
Valentine’s Day…sigh. You might not be celebrating this, but your bae might surprise you. Lucky bastard. For everyone who couldn’t care less about this day, or refuses to hide on the couch in a hoodie today: in these workouts, someone will fall for you and you will be in the mood. Don’t worry: there’s always a teacher to make sure you’re doing it safe.
Hit the floor at
As soon as you touch the floor you’re game-over. You might succeed in that, but you will definitely stumble on the other participants. For those who have no clue:
Let go of your balance at acroyoga
Acroyoga is yoga, the acrobatic way. The workout challenges couples to perform next level balance postures (the ones you see on Instagram). A newbie? Chances are you will kiss the mat a bunch of times. The teacher will help you landing soft and safe.
Do a cannonball in the pool
Or float around in the cannonball area, but don’t fall asleep.
You could also join a workout like aqua jogging or take a free fall.
Faceplant the mat with martial arts
Fall in love with martial arts. Workouts like (Brazilian) jiu jitsu and MMA boost techniques to bring your opponent to the ground (and vice versa). Go for a submission and grapple with everything you’ve got. It’s a matter of time before both of you will be nose-diving.
Take the Spartan fall at trampoline jumping
Kids love to jump air castles, and so do we. Good thing sport instructors came up with a legit reason to never quit jumping trampolines: getting fit. How nice: VROG Amsterdam offers an obstacle-training (with a real Iron Viking and a Ninja Warrior). Changes are high you will bump into a few shoulders at the battlefield.
Get mixed up in an obstacle run whirl
Obstacles are welcome, just not in your love life. Luckily, you can leave them behind at the circuit track for die-hards: the obstacle run. This is where the sport freaks train for mud runs and triathlons. Funny, you’re an athlete at having fun. Hit the dirt and don’t look back.
