HOUSTON, TX, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ever dreamt of breaking a sweat while defying gravity or loved the feeling of fitness bliss on a trampoline? Buckle up because bungee classes are now available at The Houstonian Club to make those dreams a reality.
The Houstonian Club, Houston’s premiere fitness facility, announces the launch of its newest studio class offering: Bungee Fitness. The Houstonian Club is the first facility in the Bayou City to offer classes in a dedicated bungee studio. The 45-minute classes focus on plyometrics, aerobic cardio, and resistance training to optimize the efforts without pain. These high-energy fitness sessions provide a uniquely challenging and low-impact workout and the perfect antidote to the monotony of a typical exercise routine.
Participants wear harnesses that connect to ceiling-mounted bungee cords. The cord absorbs much of the tension, making workouts low-impact and fun. The cord eases the efforts needed for exercises like planks and pushups, while the repetitions burn fat and build muscle. Bungee classes also build core muscles and strengthen posture because the cords pull against gravity, requiring participants to focus on remaining balanced and stable.
With the launch of this new class, The Houstonian Club is now a one-stop-shop for members and registered hotel guests who want a full range of options for their workout needs. The Houstonian Club offers more than 180 weekly group exercise classes, three temperature-controlled pools, indoor and outdoor tennis, indoor basketball, cycling, yoga studios, and a workout floor with over 300 pieces of equipment. The 185,000-square-foot facility also has highly trained fitness instructors, personal trainers, a registered dietitian, and a wellness therapy suite called The Covery by The Houstonian Club.
“The launch of Bungee Fitness is a great step forward in creating a class environment that is not just a great workout, but a fun experience,” says Steven Elizondo, Group Exercise Manager at The Houstonian Club. “In a bungee class, participants will benefit from a challenging workout without the impact of high-intensity movements.”
All Bungee Fitness instructors at The Houstonian Club create a sequence of exercises that make the workout feel different each time. However, the classes share the same formula to deliver maximum results in minimum time. Although participants of all levels are welcome to take bungee classes, it is not safe for women who are pregnant, and members are asked to weigh in with Steven Elizondo one to two days before class.
“Our classes not only elevate the heart rate, but they are a mood booster, too,” says Elizondo. “How can you not have fun as you are gliding through the air and comfortably executing moves you never thought possible? It is truly a unique experience.”
