Inspired by Rio? Try Gymnastics at These Gyms

Are you feeling inspired by Rio? We are. To celebrate the Games for the next two weeks, we’ll be sharing studios from around the U.S. where you can try your hand at the events being hosted in Rio in your own neighborhood.

If you flip over the gymnasts’ amazing moves from Rio, here are five studios you can visit to see if you’ve got the skills to complete your own gymnastics training session.

TrampoLEAN

If you’re inspired by the trampoline gymnasts, TrampoLEAN is the place for you. TrampoLEAN in New York offers a unique style of workout: high-intensity intervals on a mini-trampoline. You’ll spend fifty minutes or less doing bodyweight exercises and utilizing elastic bands and light hand weights to help shape your muscles.
