Ringing in the new year, chances are you’ve already compiled your resolutions for 2019, and we’re wagering that one of them is to get into healthier shape this year. While a quick jog around Lumpini Park is no doubt the sensible, fuss-free option, we understand how sweating it out to blaring horns and the smell of road-side grilled pork skewers leaves a lot to be desired. Which is why we’ve gathered a list of other ways you can achieve your fitness goals this year. From bungee jumping indoors to shaping up with a glass of wine, here are some unconventional yet undeniably interesting exercises to try this 2019.
Yoga & Wine
Avid wine lovers, you’re in luck! Brancott Estate and Brew Yoga Thailand have been collaborating to offer a series of ‘Silent Wine Yoga’ classes, meaning your guilty pleasure can now become your way of getting fit. The sessions help to heat up your body, boost your blood circulation and also help achieve a sense of relaxation. Headphones playing calming music give you a sense of privacy as you balance a glass of wine while moving your body into the various poses. For wine enthusiasts wondering what you’re being served, expect high quality, full flavoured white wine at only 90 calories per 142 ml — perfect for your healthy “new year new me” ideals.

You might’ve seen this in Arizona or New York City, but the Bungee Workout actually originated from Thailand — created in Bangkok’s Stories to Tales Theatre, before making its way across the globe. Bungee cords and dance moves are combined for an epic workout experience that has you literally bouncing from wall to wall, Spiderman-style. An exhilarating exercise that gives you fun, cardio and weight training, the Bungee Workout combines fitness, dance choreography and acrobatic performance to a soundtrack of upbeat tunes. What’s best is that you don’t even need to be a professional to learn to fly — the exercise is geared towards the everyday person, beginners included.
Maybe you can’t fit a beach getaway into your schedule just yet, but here’s a workout that gets you real close to the sun, sand and sea. A combination of surfing techniques and other exercise elements, Surf Set gives you a fun, alternative way to get your fitness levels on track. Choose between the yoga-inspired Balance workout, the muscle-building Build workout, and the intense HIT-inspired Burn workout. Or why not go hard and take them all — the Blend workout gives you a combination of everything on offer for an effective total body session.
Following the byline “Sculpting Bodies. Changing Lives.”, Physique 57’s barre training workouts target the muscles in your arms, thighs, seat and abs and then stretches them for relief — all using your own bodyweight as the key resistance. Whether you’re looking to get into a regular exercise routine, trying to tone up, or want some proper, intense training, there’s something to be gained for everyone at Physique 57. An all-rounded exercise from head-to-toe, the sessions push you to your limits, but with results like defined muscles and chiseled waists, it’s worth it.
A newcomer promotion gives you two classes at THB1,000, while you can get a package of 10 classes for THB9,000. To book your own class or find out more, visit physique57bangkok.com, or the official Facbook page.
