Bored with your usual workout routine? Shake things up with these fun fitness classes with a twist.
We get it, it’s tough sticking to your fitness goals sometimes, especially when you’ve hit a plateau. If traditional workouts aren’t your cup of tea, jump on the bandwagon with these fun and unique fitness classes!
If working out somewhere new stresses you out, here is the perfect workout option for you. Beer yoga can not only prove to be a really interesting fitness routine but also a calming one. This fun workout involves practising low-intensity yoga poses while holding (and yes, sipping on) a chilled bottle of beer. Sounds so cool and challenging!
Wondering how will the beer bit help? You will learn how to balance the bottle while practising various yoga asanas and thus improve your balancing skills and flexibility. Started originally in Germany (no surprises there!), this unique fitness trend has hit various parts of the world. Not so much into beer? You could grab a bottle of water instead.

Once you register for it, be ready to get a chance to improve your flexibility, core strength and muscle toning. And did we forget to mention you can burn up to 1,000 calories during a single session!
