Head Over Heels Friday: SkyRobics...The Most Fun Calorie Burn Ever!

Happy Friday Everyone!  My newest obsession this week is a bit off topic from the usual Head Over Heels posts, but totally worth sharing!  Break out your workout duds, we're talking fitness and exercise because I am Head Over Heels for SkyRobics!!! 
That's me furthest to the left getting some air!

Wondering what the heck SkyRobics is?  Or where I found a 'trampoline park'?  A couple months ago I discovered that Minneapolis was the newest city to open a Trampoline Park called Skyzone.  Upon this discovered I squealed with excitement (probably just like a 5 year old kid would)! 
 As much as I wanted to hit up their 'Open Jump' hours, I reminded myself that I am probably too old to jump around with kids.  So I was geeked when I read that they offered a fitness class for adults called SkyRobics!  I was able to rope in a couple gals from work to try out the class with me and we LOVED IT!

SkyRobics combines advanced calisthenics, core exercises and strength building aerobics, all done on an all-trampoline walled training surface (check out this You Tube video to see part of a class).  The class was pretty hardcore, I definitely felt like I got a great workout and I had so much fun!  At the beginning we spent probably the ten minutes just laughing (maybe that is part of the workout?).  They say you can burn 600 to 1,000 calories in the class depending on the intensity of your workout- which is awesome considering that is a great calorie burn while disguised as just a fun time.

I didn't get photos of the actual workout, just a few of us at the end of the class jumping around like idiots.

 Totally blurry, but it was awesome, I didn't want to leave!
As an added bonus our class instructor even let us do one jump in the foam pit for fun.  Getting out of the foam pit also felt like a workout! Ha!

So there you have SkyRobics!  Currently there are only 7 Skyzone Parks in the United States, but there are a handful that will be opening soon (check the list here to see where).  I highly recommend checking out this class if you can, it is a blast!  Totally Head Over Heels and I can't wait to go again!

What did you think of SkyRobics?  Would you attend a class?  Have you been before?  I'd love to hear what you think!!!


  1. Katrina JUST did that this week! I was actually quite jealous, I'm the one who love trampolines. I think we're going to go some Saturday soon.

  2. I just did this with my sister (Karla) on Monday! If you and Alex want to go some Saturday soon, we'd love to plan it together!

  3. Wow, that looks like so much fun!!!!! Wish we had something like that where I live! How fun to be able to indulge the inner child in all of us with that!!

  4. Katrina, that is so awesome you went too! I'd love to go to a class again or even open jump (if they allow grown ups?). I keep trying to get Alex to do it and he won't :( he said he might try the class though since I was sore for like 2 days after, he wants to see if it is that hard :) I will let you know, we are crazy busy until the middle of September, maybe then?


I love to hear from you! What's on your mind?
