Want to Workout like your playing in an arcade?
New York City gym Asphalt Green has the latest high intensity, circuit based workout that is designed like an arcade rather than a usual gym. The gym comprises of an interactive gym space for gym goers, with floors and walls that reacts to your touch and pressure.
Asphalt green is housed in a 1,800-square-foot dedicated studio space that will house its new AG6 class. AG6 is a 45-minute, high-intensity, circuit-based workout.
"We're thrilled to be the first fitness venue to bring this innovative workout system to North America and New York City," said Maggy Siegel, Executive Director, Asphalt Green. "AG6 creates a fun, fast-paced energy that's unlike anything you've ever seen in a fitness club."
"AG6 provides functional movement training, so it's phenomenal for athletes looking to improve their performance or anyone who wants to get fit," said Jeff Ward, Chief Program Officer, Asphalt Green. "The system's visual cues train reaction time in a way conventional training methods cannot."
"We can track your progress whether, how fast you hit the targets, how fast your feet are moving, and we'll be able to set a milestone for you and we'll be able to work with you throughout there," Coccia said, one of the instructors.
Gym goers have to respond to LED lights alternately flashing with sounds , which develop reflexes ,strength, balance, speed, reaction time and muscle memory. It also provides short intense workout. Arcade Workouts can burn 1000 calories for a 45-minute routine and its so much fun.
The technology is called Prama and it's based out of Spain.
