What a pleasant Hump Day treat! Casually scrolling through my KFit on Monday a notification popped up about a lunchtime event in Hyde Park for a HIIT class and free lunch. What better reason to escape my desk and get away from the office for a much needed mental health break!
The class was hosted in the scenic Hyde Park. Sydney really turned it on on the day. The sun was shining and the fresh spring air was the perfect remedy to a busy day. The team from Emperor Fitness were great; they’re energy was contagious and they had the park completely set up with Battle Ropes, Kettlebells and Kick pads.
Sumo Salad has also had their lunch stations set up under the trees which was a nice little relax section.
The HIIT class started off with a good warm up- loosening our muscles and joints. We kicked off the second part of the warm up with 4 sets of 20 x pushups, 20 x burpees, 20 x jump squats. Afterward we were seperated into 2 teams and went through a number of high intensity stations which included bear and mountain climbs, frog hops, kettlebells and sprints. We finished up with some core focused exercises designed to build strength and the foundation of your body: Toe touches, crunches, hip raises and bicycle kicks.
A challenge for everyone, Emperor Fitness did such a good job of catering to all levels and incorporating an awesome group atmosphere. It was really nice as everyone were encouraging each other even though were all strangers. Afterward everyone was treated to a complimentary meal at SumoSalad and also bottles of their new Cold Pressed Juice. The cold pressed juice is 100% pure fruit and vegetable with no added sugar and free from preservatives, concentrates and colours.
