If you liked dodgeball: You liked using your classmates as target practice, dodging balls to the face, and coveting a “no mercy” attitude.
Then you'll like boxing: Throwing a ball at your opponent is not very different from throwing punches at your rival. All that dodging, dipping, diving, and ducking you practiced during games will pay off when gloves come swinging at your head. Try out a class -- or refine your skills -- at a local boxing studio or a nationwide gym like Title Boxing Club or UFC Gym.
If you liked parachute: If you were one of those bizzarro kids who got a rush of pleasure from feeling a giant piece of communal fabric between your fingers, we’re going to go ahead and suggest you change your sheets. Also, we’ll assume you’re probably the kind of person that really values the experience of a workout over how many calories you burned.
Then you’ll like aerial yoga: Aerial yoga takes regular yoga and adapts the poses to fit inside a large, silky hammock, bringing a weightless feeling to much of the practice. Sound oddly comforting? Give it a try. You’ll be back under the bubble in no time.
If you liked steal the bacon: You weren’t afraid to use wit, skill, luck, and sometimes, brute force to be able to take home the ‘W’ in this balls-out competition. (Reminder: two members of opposite teams must fight in an epic battle for the “bacon,” while a crowded arena -- most likely your classmates -- cheers on.)
Then you’ll like CrossFit: Leveraging your inner strength to complete intense rounds of exercises at record fast speeds will surely bring you back to your carefree days, when bringing home the bacon -- quite literally -- was your most important task. However, the stakes are a bit higher now: Instead of just losing in front of your entire class, your results will be posted on Instagram.
If you liked scooter races: You loved hitting unsafe speeds using only the stubby nubbins of your legs to propel yourself forward. Oh, and you did it backwards.
Then you’ll like megaformer classes: To give you a taste of that navigational balancing act you enjoyed so much as a child stunt artist, we suggest trying a megaformer class. With enough levers and pulleys to equip a small spaceship, megaformers can target the minuscule areas of your body (like your lower left butt cheek), so you’ll feel sore in places you didn’t know existed. Which is way better than, say, a broken leg from a scooter accident.
