The holidays may have come and gone, but many of us are still paying the high price for all the lemang (glutinous rice) and rendang (spicy meat) we indulged in at all the Hari Raya Puasa open houses last month. And seeing how it’s proving to be quite an uphill task to lose the extra pounds we gained from the festive feasting, it may be time to break out the exercise gear.
Burning calories doesn’t necessarily mean running laps around the track, though. If that’s too repetitive and boring, you can always amp up your workout game by engaging in fitness classes that are fun and able to get your adrenaline pumping.
Thankfully, Kuala Lumpur offers quite a variety of unconventional classes to try. The last two years, for instance, saw the growing popularity of fitness workouts such as spin classes and trampoline routines. Since then, more interesting exercise options have popped up in the scene — think beer yoga (which, as its name suggests, entails indulging in craft beers as you stretch on yoga mats) and aqua cycling. To get you started on losing that flab, we’ve put together a guide to 5 fitness classes you should try. Sweating it out has never been more enjoyable.
