Animal Flow is relatively new to the UK and combines ground-based movement that fuses gymnastics, acrobatics, Parkour, capoeira, and breakdancing, while staying low to the ground and engaging many muscles at once (think of the way a lion stealthily stalks his prey). But don’t be fooled by the playful element—this creature-inspired class is a serious, drench-you-with-sweat workout.
It is an innovative fitness program that combines quadrupedal and ground-based movement with elements from various bodyweight-training disciplines to create a fun, challenging workout emphasizing multi-planar, fluid movement.
Animal Flow can be utilized as a stand-alone workout or as a group class format, and can be integrated into existing fitness routines by utilizing various components for dynamic warm-ups, interval training, circuit training, and skills building.
So if you are looking for something new to try then give it a go. It doesn't look like it is for complete fitness beginners but for those already taking regular fitness classes it could be fun!
Here are a couple of the exercises. Take a look and see what you think!
