A new year is always a great time to reinvent yourself and commit to new things to make you a better person. People always seem to do one thing at the beginning of the year: promise to get fit. Unfortunately, after visiting the gym for a couple of weeks, most start to lose the motivation that they had in the beginning.

Sticking to the same fitness routine is one thing to blame for lack of motivation. This year, why not try different things to get fit and get results while having fun? There are many Manila activities where you can enjoy calories. Here’s a list of fun, unconventional calorie-burning and fun activities in Metro Manila, and see which one fits you.

Leave your stationary bike for a while and try The Bike Playground. Designed by celebrity biker Claudio Caluori and built by Velosolutions, the indoor pump park is the first of its kind in the country. The Bike Playground allows you to enjoy indoor cycling in Manila and get more out of biking with an outdoor trail for a fun routine exercise and an indoor one for a more challenging biking experience.

There’s no need to bring your own bike as you can rent one from The Bike Playground. The place also has flexible rates, so you don’t have to commit for a month if you want to try the facilities.

For instance, it promotes upper body strength and helps mental focus, balance, and coordination. One place to try archery is Arrowland by Gandiva, which offers archery resources and an indoor range that can accommodate both beginners and more experienced archers.

Ninja Academy is not a school for ninjas, but you’ll still get to learn new tricks and be physically fit after entering its doors as it is a school dedicated to parkour.

Another fun way to get fit is through Bambike Ecotours. You will lose a few calories and be more knowledgeable as they host tours around Intramuros. You’ll also get to give back when you join a tour, as the eco-bikes being used are made by builders from Gawad Kalinga, and part of the proceeds of the tours goes to various causes.

October 2022 Update: Visitors can visit Bambike Ecotours by appointment only.


5. Trampoline Park

Where: Mayflower Street, Greenfield District, Mandaluyong City

Jump for fun or fitness at Trampoline Park.

Trampolines always bring out the kid in you, and they are used to working out in Trampoline Park. Aside from the vast trampolines inside the park, you can also play basketball and dodgeball or jump in a sea of foam while doing backflips. This place where you can enjoy fun activities in Metro Manila might seem like a haven for kids, but you’ll sweat a lot even if you just jump for an hour.

Aside from these, Trampoline Park also offers fitness classes incorporating trampolines into various exercises and activities. Gravity Fitness or Aerodance is an excellent program if you prefer a more regular activity. In contrast, its Gravity Parkour makes for a more intense workout.

October 2022 Update: Trampoline Park is permanently closed.
