True to its name, this world-renowned class will make you
feel like a mighty Roman warrior, as you grind your way
around a circuit of functional, yet punishing, resistance
exercises: alternating lunges while passing a weight under
each leg, push-ups with one hand raised on a ball, or rolling
planks on a medicine ball, to name a few of the fiercest.
Every single muscle group gets a thorough bashing during
class – my chest in particular was certainly unprepared for
those killer presses and push-ups. As hard-core as that may
sound (and it certainly is), the vibe of the place is anything
but – it feels more like a happy family that decided to get
together and test everyone’s mental and physical limits.
The modern studio is kitted out with top-notch equipment
and loads of weight options to advance towards as you
get stronger. One particularly taxing move that put me to
shame was the chin-up – the strong resistance bands, in
place to supposedly catapult you into the air, were clearly
useless on me, as my head bobbled hopelessly below the
bar. Well, at least I tried to do as the Romans do....
FOR Lovers of the burn
TARGETS Every muscle group, particularly chest
CLASS SIZE 20+
F45 Training, 4/74 Wellington Street, East Perth,
0406 927 965, f45training.com.au.
BeMoreFit owner Brett Moore loves a good outdoor sesh.
He’s cranked up the gruelling 242-stair climb up Jacobs
Ladder in Kings Park, to bring you a full-body workout.
20 squats (drop as low as possible while maintaining form)
20 push-ups (in full, or with dropped knees)
20 crunches (have your training partner stand on your toes,
and give them a high five at top of movement)
20 jack knives (start in a plank, then sweep your knee
through to opposite elbow)
1 Jacobs Ladder staircase sprint
Repeat at least twice.
TOP TIP For a greater challenge, try shortening your rest
break, or increasing sets.
Air Supremacy is run by a troupe of circus performers and trainers in Leederville, and invites attendees to hang upside
down, do flips, and imagine life as an acrobat extraordinaire. I have to say, I thought there was no chance my measly
upper body strength would cut it. Lucky for me, the class is totally weakling-friendly. The teachers are there to give
newbies loads of variations (like holding a plank on the ground with hands in the lowered rings, to build upper-
body strength) while more advanced students casually perform 360-degree flips in the air. This class is equal parts
challenging and fun – your arms, shoulders and abs will be on fire for the whole hour (look forward to that morning-
after burn...). It’s so worth it for the street cred you’ll get with a pic of yourself in a Cirque du Soleil-style air pose.
FOR Exhibitionists at heart
TARGETS Upper body and core
CLASS SIZE 10-12
The AirSpace, 626 Newcastle Street, Leederville, 9328 5481, airyogaperth.com.au.
Stairway to heaven (or hell?)
