Exercise can get boring when you stick to the same old routine all the time. But there are plenty of trendy new ways to get your fitness on when you’re ready for a change. You can take hula hooping, trampoline class, and even do yoga with goats, if that’s your thing. And let’s not forget what sounds like the scariest choice - hatchet throwing.
Yep, we’re talking hatchets, like axes. And once you learn the ever-important safety rules and proper techniques, you throw these things at wooden targets, wearing your arms out for two hours. The tradition goes back to Vikings and Native Americans, but the modern-day version can tone your core, shoulders, back and arms - while giving you a break from your regular old sweat sesh.
There are facilities that offer hatchet throwing, like Stumpy’s Hatchet House in Eatontown, New Jersey. They require a group of at least four and you each pay about $20 an hour for safety training and a lesson and then you’re throwing solo. It’s definitely not for everyone, but if you’ve got a good grip, it could make a nice change from your old spin class.
