Now that nearly everyone’s jumped onto the fitness bandwagon, the big question is: What’s next? Workouts like HIIT, Crossfit and even Acroyoga have joined the routine of a hamster wheel for adrenaline junkies, pushing fitness centres to pull new tricks from their hats.
One newcomer, Babel Fit, has been breaking the mould among fit-fluencers, with its Insta-Wow factor, themed rooms, world-class equipment, and possibly the coolest workout in town, Boga Fit.
The aqua centric, core-challenging regime takes place on the floating Boga FiTMAT, and is set to officially join the boutique gym’s inventive lineup of sweat series this April. The first of its kind in Malaysia, we spent a day by the pool with general manager and Boga Fit trainer, Jacq Ng, who gave us an exclusive taster of the workout.
Babel Fit has an impressive lineup of workouts that go beyond the norm. How did Boga Fit come into the picture?
“We did a lot of research for stand up paddleboard yoga, which is very popular overseas. That was the initial idea but then we realised they have floating fitness mats, too. That’s how we adopted it into out curated, fitness lineup.”
