I am a pretty lazy and laidback person when it comes to practice a fitness routine.
Not good, I know!
Always on the lookout for excuses even to skip my 45 min morning walk (the only thing I do in the name of exercise).
It’s raining, too hot/cold/sunny/humid or I am plain bored.
And so, when I was invited to attend a trial session at MultiFit, I tried ducking by giving random reasons.
But when I heard them saying that it’s not “THE” typical gym and they ain’t have no traditional treadmills, it got me interested.
For quite a while I have been hearing and reading about the concept of ‘functional training’ in gyms and MultiFit is one of them.
(Functional training or exercises are a methodology which involves training the body for cardio and fitness using activities performed in daily life.)
Soon I showed up at the nearest MultiFit facility and yes, I was indeed impressed!
People were doing activities which typically are not categorised under ‘gyming’ per se. They were flipping tyres, spinning heavy ropes, smashing sand balls on the ground, hitting tyres with a huge hammer, pushing loaded carts and doing a lot of other unconventional stuff.
Oh, yes! MultiFit does make people exercise without traditional gym equipment.
The idea is to cut out monotony of regular exercising and make it interesting and non-gym like.
During my facility tour I was told that the motto of MultiFit is to extend the concept of exercising beyond dumbbells and machines and change the definition of fitness from ‘Body Building’ to ‘Strength Building’.
Keeping to this belief, MultiFit offers a wide variety of eccentric workouts including functional training, customized circuits, boot camps and outdoor training, ensuring that your sessions are never boring or run-of-the-mill.
MultiFit offers various traditional and neo fitness models such as,
- HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)
- MMA (Mix Martial Arts)
- Endurance Training,
The training methodology is a mix of both functional training and weight training used together as the best mix to help attain a client’s fitness goals.
I have also heard a lot about their famous ‘multi-spin’ classes (looping) – a high paced session of studio cycling to strengthen heart and tone legs. Invigorating, upbeat music and flickering laser lights in an otherwise dark room make this session super fun and effective.
