SWEDISH GYM AT THE CINQUANTENAIREBrussels
Parc du Cinquantenaire
Work out and have funIt's springtime and everyone wants to get rid of their stress and that extra weight they put on over the winter. Is the gym too expensive? You don't like to work out alone in front of a mirror? Friskis&Svettis, which was created in Sweden in 1979 and has 159 clubs throughout Europe, has thought of you. The company offers free outdoor group workout sessions to get back in shape while having a good time. Everyone goes at their own pace. You’ll get what you need whether you’re a beginner, intermediate or advanced.
No more waist, abs and butt exercises or Step aerobics!I arrived at the Cinquantenaire full of good intentions at 7:30 pm on Tuesday. A dozen or so people were already waiting for the workout to get started. Waist, abs and butt exercises and step aerobics were all consigned to the closet! Our teacher made us do some warm ups. Then we moved on to awareness and flexibility movements then to cardio-vascular work. It was just what I needed! Recovery, stretching then relaxation. The hour flew by. See you next week!
I teach tennis in the city and also write about culture for a number of publications. I love to travel and meet people. My city? It's an improv concert in a down-to-earth bar, an exhibition built on a work site, a play performed in the heart of the old city... My little extra: combining sport and culture!
