Work hard, play hard is the philosophy of many in the city deemed “Partyslava” by foreigners and locals alike. Fun yes, healthy…. not so much, but there is a solution to balancing out the office cabin fever and weekend all nighters. A fitness program called Crossfit well known in the western world has recently taken Bratislava by storm producing a few strong followings of workout groups throughout the city.
Crossfit consists of “constantly varied, high intensity, functional movement,” with the stated goal of improving overall fitness. Other than using your own natural body weight during a 1-2 hour workout including running, sit ups pushups & squats, some common activities include kettle bell dead lifts, overhead swings, Bulgarian bag training and burpees (a push up jumping jack combination).
So if you are looking to get or stay fit while meeting a variety of friendly and multi-cultural people join one of the regular crossfit groups at the medical gardens (Medická záhrada). See schedule below:
Monday 6:15pm – 8:00pm
Wednesday 6:15pm – 8:00pm
Friday 6:15pm – 8:00pm
There is a 2€ trainer fee.
