Bali is the ultimate vacation for several reasons and the beaches, food and general carefree vibe are just some of them. If you have over-indulged in the lip-smacking food, need the perfect beach body, or just want to blow off some steam, head over to the many workout classes or gyms in Seminyak. Here, we’ve picked three workouts you must consider when in Bali.
‘Work It!’ the Bali Way – 5 Workouts to Get You Pumping!
1. HIIT Workout
If the long walks on beaches are not enough work out for you, then enrol yourself into one of the many HIIT classes at Soham. Their HIIT workouts can help you burn up to 800 kcal per session. If that’s not enough motivation to enrol, then we don’t know what is. Choose from spinning, martial arts, P.U.M.P., and more to get your heart rate up and get fitter.

If you are looking to really put yourself through your paces, Empire Fit Club pushed you to achieve results with its combination of circuit training and obstacle challenges.
