Drawing inspiration from the strong controlled movements performed by Cirque du Soleil artists, the award-winning Spa & Salon Bellagio, in collaboration with Cirque du Soleil and Reebok, presents an innovative new workout class to its menu. JUKARI Fit to Flex, following the worldwide success of JUKARI Fit to Fly, is the second innovative workout to come out of the partnership between the leading fitness brand and the world-renowned entertainment company. Bellagio, home to the aquatic masterpiece “O,” offers the only Las Vegas Strip location where guests can physically embark on a journey into the athletic and artistic world of Cirque du Soleil.
This cardio-infused program works to develop long, lean muscles and powerful core strength. Classes, led by certified instructors, are designed to help enhance flexibility, muscle tone and coordination. Using the specially designed JUKARI Band, a lightweight elastic band, participants are able to manage the intensity, move deeper into active stretches and increase their range of motion. Set to custom-mixed Cirque du Soleil music, JUKARI Fit to Flex is an inspirational complete body workout.
“JUKARI has affected my take on working out in general. I was never all that crazy about group fitness before, perhaps because of my career as a solo rhythmic gymnast and solo Cirque performer,” says Mary Sander, Cirque du Soleil artist and JUKARI Fit to Flex Creative Collaborator. “JUKARI has inspired me to try new things and to embrace the woman I am. It has made fitness fun again!”
JUKARI Fit to Flex consists of four blocks of movement. The introduction, Prep Flex, familiarizes key moves that will be used in the body of the workout. Dynamic Flex challenges balance, mobility, stability and coordination while Floor Flex activates and strengthens stabilizer muscles and encourages fluid joint movement. Final Flex offers a performance opportunity that leaves participants with a sense of exhilaration and revitalization.
Classes are $40 per person and include a day pass for the cardio center, spa vanity, wet areas and lockers. To find out more about JUKARI Fit to Flex at Spa & Salon Bellagio, visit Bellagio.com/spasalon/spa-fitness-center.aspx.
