We used to be able to stay fit the easy way: playing on jungle gyms and doing cartwheels at recess.
Spurred by childhood dreams of running away with the circus, we were eager to join in on a one-hour JUKARI Fit to Fly class at Kingwest Fitness in Liberty Village. The full-body workout, created by Cirque du Soleil and Reebok, uses a piece of custom equipment called the FlySet—a modified trapeze of sorts. The toe-tapping instructors make it look incredibly easy: you hold onto the bar, run in circles, jump and leap, all in sync. However, after only a few quick lifts our arms were burning. If fun, playful moves can keep us toned, we’ll definitely keep frolicking with Fit to Fly. —Paige Dzenis
