Remember when playtime meant racing back and forth on the monkey bars, taking your two-wheelers out for a joy ride around the park, and playing Hop Scotch with the squad?
The jungle gym was definitely a paradise for us kids back in the day, and without even realising it, we were getting quite an extensive workout from it too.
Fitness junkies… if you are looking for that one place where your inner child can come out and play, then, look no further. Nestled in the bustling district of Bangsar, The Playground Fitness aims to bring the definition of FUN to a whole other level.
With an inspiring ambiance, the recently launched studio is equipped with a selection of training stations, ranging from cargo net climb, an array of weight stations, as well as a boxing ring which allows the studio to tailor the perfect system for each signature workout – definitely a great stepping stone to discovering what the studio has to offer.
Housing a variety of trendy high-intensity functional training, coupled with traditional barbell movements and stimulating total body kickboxing fitness, the Playmakers at Playground Fitness pride themselves for their ability to serve as an oasis for training and a social environment conducive to motivation. Not only do they understand the type of training their members will need, but also the nutrition plan that will suit the members best in achieving their goals.
Focusing on the right technique that will emphasize on your core stability and agility, the workouts are built around common movements that will help strengthen your body where you need it most. You will definitely see better results than just pounding away for an hour on the treadmill.
My one-hour power session with Playmaker, Shona Forbes had me started off with the usual warm up and stretches before we were put into strength training that involves alternating 40-second bursts of extremely intense movements with slower recovery periods for three consecutive rounds. This includes squats, burpees, tuck jumps, planks, mountain climbers and the like. Definitely, a great and fun way to test out your endurance, strength and agility.
No matter what your methods of choice are to get moving and stay healthy, the signature classes are perfectly tailored and are made available throughout the day. They also offer 30 and 60-minute classes to best fit your schedule and lifestyle so no excuses “busy people”!
Check out their top 4 signatures classes below:
