Since graduating in May, I’ve made it my mission to focus on something I kind of neglected while I was in college (class, homework, internships, freelancing and stress kind of get in the way), and that’s EXERCISE! Sure, I worked out a little bit in college (and that was really only my senior year,) but I definitely wasn’t as devoted as I am now! I’ve joined a gym, continued my daily bike/jog routine that I adopted last summer and even started yoga (which is slowly replacing my daily bike rides since winter is approaching!) I love learning and trying all types of new exercises (the funner the better!) So when my pals at Sky Zone (that AWESOME indoor trampoline park I blogged about this summer) invited me to come take a Sky Fit class, I was more that THRILLED

Sky Fit is one of several classes and programs offered at Sky Zone. Sky Fit is low-impact (beginners are definitely welcome), healthy fun that combines calisthenics, core exercises and strength-building aerobics! Essentially, it’s a one hour class that consists of (lots of) jumping, regular exercises (like push ups, sit ups and planks), team exercises, stretches, running (and that’s only the first 30 minutes!) What I really loved about Sky Fit is while it’s intense, it’s also very manageable! You can stop ever so often to get water or to take a break if you have to (it’s not like those strict workout classes where you’ll get yelled at if you have to pause and catch your breath.) Sky Fit is offered three times at week (Mondays at 9am, Thursdays at 5pm and Saturdays at 10am.) Due to my work schedule, I opted for the Saturday class. I’ve got to be honest with you, (if you can,) you have GOT to try Sky Fit at least once in your life! It’s amazing. I definielty couldn’t do it every week but I’m thinking of doing it biweekly!
During Sky Fit you can burn up to 1,000 calories in one hour (if you put your all into and really follow along with the instructor!) Here’s how my first Sky Fit experience played out:
First 15 minutes: “This is so fun! I love doing jumping jacks. I could jump on this trampoline all day (lalalala happy thoughts!)”
15 minutes – 30 minutes: “WHAT. IS. THIS. FEELING. IN. MY LEGS. We’ve only been jumping for 30 minutes! It feels like I’m running a 5k!”
30-45 minutes: “This is so much fun! Now we’re doing jumping races on the trampoline! Who knew exercising could be so much fun! I don’t know why I wanted to quit earlier!”
45-55 minutes: “There’s that aching in my leg again! Where did all this sweat come from. Thank goodness they told us to bring towels!”
Final 5 minutes: “Yay, stretching. This reminds me of yoga! I love yoga. I feel so ALIVE! I could climb Mount Everest now! I LOVE YOU SKY FIT!”

Working Out Has Never Been This Fun

I’ve spend the last few months focusing on living a healthier lifestyle. I’ve cut fast food out of my diet (I used to eat it almost everyday) and starting eating better, I go on daily bike rides (although I sometimes alternate by jogging) and have even joined a gym! Although I look forward to my daily bike rides, I have to admit going to the gym can be boring at times. Even though I love my gym and go regularly, I’m always looking for fun new ways to exercise. So when I was invited to come and give Sky Zone a try, I JUMPED (get it?) at the idea!  

Sky Zone is the world’s first indoor trampoline park. According to their website, they are the  “inventors of “fun fitness” and the makers of trampolines as far as the eye can see.” Although I’ve been to indoor trampoline parks before, I’ve never been to Sky Zone. Sky Zone is currently located in 35 states and is constantly adding new locations! Yesterday, I headed to the Sky Zone in Elmhurst, Illinois and let me tell you, it was the most intense (and exciting) exercise I’ve had in a while!

Sky Zone has several activities including: Ultimate Dodgeball (which is super fun), the Foam Zone (my FAVORITE), Sky Slam, (which makes you feel like you’re in the NBA), SkyFitness/SkyRobics (you can burn 1,000 calories in ONE HOUR!!), SkyJam (16+), SkyMania (Ages 10-15) and toddler time.
Sky Zone is a great form of exercise for kids and kids at heart (like me!) There’s something so soothing about jumping up and down. I felt like I could fly! After one hour of jumping, I felt as though I ran a marathon!  Who know exercising could be so fun?

I may or may not have yelled ‘Bazinga’ every time I emerged from the foam pit and even though none of the kids got the reference, the teenagers and adults all chuckled!
