Em is a month into a new fitness regime..
And she’s ready to change it thanks to a new gym she has found.
A multi-sensory space where fitness meets clubbing, the Mt Alexander Road newbie offers ‘high intensity group workouts in a nightclub-inspired environment’. There are five different sweat-inducing classes to get involved in, each session thumping to the kind of tunes you’d usually hear from the DJ booth at 1am on a Sunday morning.
A new fitness class is proving that sometimes exercise and alcohol can mix. F* IT is a new high-intensity workout class whipping people into shape from their purpose built gym-nightclub in Ascot Vale.
Step into the darkened room for either a 30 or 45 minute training session where you will sweat more than a hangover in January. This is certainly harder than your usual night on the town – expect boxing, treadmills and strength training all accompanied by nightclub tunes, pulsating coloured lights and LED mirrors to make sure you can see all the sweat/progress glittering on your forehead.
It’s a new way to work out and go clubbing… at the same time. So what is this place? inside co-editor Jan Henderson sees Ascot Vale in a different light, albeit a dim one inside a gym with attitude, and discovers getting fit can be so much more than working up a sweat.
