You’ve got to try out this FloatFit class

By now, we can all acknowledge that there is no one specific path towards a fit and healthy lifestyle. While some people are into working out 4x a week, or going for a run every morning for example, others may find that they need something more fun or diverse in their schedule. If you happen to find yourself in the second category, really needing something exciting to encourage you to workout, then I’ve most likely got the class for you: FloatFit.

What is FloatFit?

This class seemingly popped out of nowhere in the last few weeks in the UK, and it’s quickly picking up speed. The FloatFit class is a 30 minute High- Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout that you do on water using the Aquabase mat. Once the mat is inflated, it has a similar feel to a surfboard. Simply trying to stand on a surfboard is hard work, so just imagine how hard it is to do pushups, lunges, planks and burpees on the Aquabase during a FloatFit class! What I especially like about this new trend is that you can do FloatFit both indoors and outdoors. The only thing you need to make sure of is to wear clothes that you don’t mind getting wet.

Taking a FloatFit class will give you a fun full-body workout that you can’t find anywhere else. The key characteristic that sets this apart from other classes is just how difficult it is to stay balanced. Not only will you be putting your energy into actually completing your exercises, but you will constantly need to be focused on maintaining your stability on the board. Keeping that balance alone is already a killer workout for your core.

Think you can handle this class?

If you live in the UK, don’t miss out on your chance to take this fun class! Check out the website to see the nearest locations near you. If you’re not in the UK, don’t worry about it too much. It’s only a matter of time before more and more fitness clubs will start offering FloatFit classes all over the world as well. De Peppel Zwembad in Ede, The Netherlands, for example, is already giving out regular classes! Which of you Dutch Fit Girls are going to try it out? 😉
