Lunging With The Stars
While they have a gym where you can go about your usual exercise routine, Freestyle Fitness specialises in making personal training regimes followed by athletes accessible to you. So this means your agenda could include physiotherapy along with sports conditioning and rehabilitation. They have Crossfit ceiling bars used for a complete functional workout under the guidance of a certified trainer (Rs 6,000 a month in groups of four) and a sandpit for joggers with weak knees. The coolest bit is that they even integrate squash and tennis games into your schedule to break the monotony that comes with most gym workouts. For this, Freestyle Fitness has tied up with clubs around Bandra – Khar Gym, Bandra Gym and Otter’s Club - where they can book a court for you even if you’re not a member. Net profit, indeed!
Expect to find expert trainers here like Egypt’s ex national fitness coach, a nice upgrade from the Mr India hopefuls carelessly dictating their personal exercise routines, the kind you see in many gyms around the city. Sign up and Freestyle Fitness will conduct a thorough past and present fitness analysis on the basis of which they’ll chalk out the most effective game plan for you. They even conduct boot camps with members at Mahalaxmi Race Course, Jogger’s Park and nearby beaches to regularly test and check improved fitness levels.
Coming soon: Yum smoothies and juices from Fellas Café. They’ve even tied up with sports nutrition brand Neulife for protein shakes. No Whey!
