Eastern Iowa Gym Offers Bungee Cord Fitness Classes [WATCH]
If you're looking to try a fun new workout, this might be right up your alley!
Aerial Elegance, located at 5412 Center Point Road NE in Cedar Rapids, is not your average gym. When you walk in, you won't find any exercise machines or squat racks. Instead, you'll see bungee cords and poles! Aerial Elegance specializes in two types of workouts: pole dance fitness and bungee cord fitness.
If you're not familiar with bungee cord fitness, the concept is actually pretty simple. Class participants are strapped into a harness that's suspended from the ceiling, allowing them to move more freely. Aerial Elegance's website reads:
"Bungee cord exercise helps you perform lunges, squats and other maneuvers that you typically wouldn’t be able to do without the lift or bounce. With aerial and dance moves mixed together… It can be a full and fun body workout."
All the classes at Aerial Elegance are taught by owner Tara Sloan, who promises a "safe, clean, fun, positive and non-judgmental environment." There are only five students per class, which allows for more personal attention. To give you a better idea of what to expect, here are a couple of videos from the business' TikTok account:
Aerial Elegance offers bungee cord fitness classes Monday through Friday mornings at 6:30 a.m., as well as Saturday mornings at 8 a.m., and Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday nights. You can get more information about the classes and book yours online now HERE.
