FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) - One of the toughest parts of working out is finding a type of exercise that not only gives you results, but that is enjoyable.
Skyzone in Fishers is taking you back to your childhood to get your daily dose of exercise with Skyrobics, a completely trampoline-based workout.
"You think of working out and people dread it," said Skyzone events manager Amy Finet. "Oh I've got to go on the treadmill or the elliptical,' but when you hear trampolines, it just brings back that fun element."
"It's just different," added Skyrobics instructor Lora Smith. "It's an opportunity to shake up your workout routine, and part of being successful in any form of exercise is just to find something that you really love to do. Very few people do not like this."
Despite it being solely on a trampoline, the class tries to blend a mix of both cardio and strength circuits. With 70 percent of Skyrobics focused on cardio, it'll really make you sweat.
"It's very easy to burn 1,000 calories in a class, so it's a very efficient workout," said Smith.
As with any exercise, there are inherent risks, but instructors encourage everyone, young and old, to go at their own pace.
"It's actually lower impact on your body," said Smith. "It is challenging, but we try to work with people of all ages and fitness levels and ease them into the routine so they can improve week by week."
While it's important to be challenging, Smith believes it's just as important to keep fitness fun.
"I think the secret to being successful and maintaining any sort of exercise is to enjoy it," said Smith. "This is definitely a workout to come and enjoy."
Skyzone offers Skyrobics on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. as well as Saturdays and Sundays at 10 a.m. You can find more information on how to sign up for classes by clicking here.
