Some sports you just have to try at least once in your lifetime; if it’s new and a little crazy, then yours truly are definitely into it. That’s exactly what happened with as we did our homework for this week’s TBS Wellness, when we tried out a bungee dancing class courtesy of Flight Club Milano, which welcomed us for a few hours of fun and training.
Wondering what this “bungee dance” thing is? Nothing scary: you won’t be launching into thin air, but you will be playing with gravity and dancing in the air, feeling as light as a feather. First off: we were strapped to bungee cords hanging from the ceiling, which immediately made us feel weightless and agile, and then we sprang right into action, warming up with a few exercises (squats, lunges, and push ups) before starting messing around and dancing to Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black.
Now this is a core-intensive workout that requires balance and strenght; for the first few minutes, we felt clumsy and sort of weak, but it didn’t take long to get more used to the cords and figure out how our body was supposed to move, and we soon started getting more confident. After a hour and a half of dancing and jumping around, we felt like we totally owned it! Bungee dancing has multiple benefits, including but not limited to toning and sculpting your body; but more importantly, it’s lots of fun! The music, the silly messing around, smiling and laughing, choreographies and, of course, the sweating… (you don’t need to be super fit to try it – but it’s a killer workout!) it gave us a great break from routine.
Our final verdict: we loved it and can’t wait to do it again! For a classy thrill and a dancing class that’ll make you feel like you’re flying, go book your bungee dancing class immediately!
