Working out doesn’t have to be boring – and we’re here to prove it. Take a look to some of our top ways to get fit for people who hate the gym.


Forget what you thought you knew about trampolining – it’s not just for kids and you don’t have to be an acrobat! Trampolining is the fun activity which is sweeping the nation. It offers a fantastic cardiovascular workout without having a heavy impact on your joints. Moreover it is great for toning and improves balance and coordination. This all-over body workout certainly isn’t boring either! Try new tricks or simply hop around to your heart’s content.

Join a sports team

If you find it hard to motivate yourself when working out alone, joining a team is definitely a good idea. Not much good at football, tennis or rugby? Don’t worry, there are plenty of alternatives to the mainstream sports, such as dodgeball. Dodgeball is a really fun game which works up a sweat without you realising. Now you can take it to the next level and make it even more fun with our airborne dodgeball league.

Fitness classes

You don’t have to be a member of a gym to get access to some of the latest fitness classes. Whether you like to party in a Zumba class or get flexy with yoga or pilates, there are plenty of community drop in classes you can sign up to. At Rush, there’s a studio offering traditional classes but if you want to try something different then how about Rebound Fitness circuits, which take place on trampolines! Just a one hour class of low impact training on the trampolines can burn up to 1,000 calories – and it’s fun to boot.

Trust us, the gym isn’t your only option when it comes to feeling healthier. Try one of these fun activities and you may be inspired to push yourself further.
