Danny MacAskill kicks off the New Year with a new training regime that only he could think of!
We all start the New Year feeling a little groggy with promises that we’ll keep fit and even head to the gym more often, but have you ever thought about combining your gym workout with your love for mountain biking?
We’re talking about the most extreme spin-class that you could ever think of, one from the mind of Danny MacAskill that trakes kettlebells for backflips!
You can watch Danny MacAskill’s Gymnasium below, and read more about how the video came together further down the page.
Personal Trainer sessions not working out? Would rather give HIIT a miss? You’re not alone, as Scottish Trials Bike legend Danny MacAskill shows us in his new film that there are other ways to make your mark in the gym.
Not a regular gym-goer by his own admission, YouTube sensationDanny stars in his new film ‘Gymnasium’ – created in collaboration with Red Bull – and attempts to show the world that staying in shape doesn’t have to be daunting.
In his latest return to our screens, Danny seeks refuge from the ‘New Year, New Me’ craze by creating his personalised fitness playground in a long forgotten hall at his local sports complex. Even though performing a perfect bar routine while still on two wheels isn’t for everyone, Danny has found that it’s a case of no chain, no gain as he’s able to do what he loves and stay in shape at the same time.
Danny MacAskill says, “It’s fair to say that gyms aren’t really my natural habitat! I take my hat off to people who go every day to stay in shape, as I much prefer to hop on my bike and keep myself fit that way. We wanted this video to be a reminder to all those looking to get fit in 2020, that you don’t have to be miserable, there’s plenty of fun ways to hit your fitness goals. For me, it has and will probably always be my bike.”
Gymnasium is the latest collaboration between Danny and Red Bull, a relationship going back 10 years that has seen other groundbreaking films such as Way Back Home, Imaginate and Wee Day Out that have clocked up hundreds of millions of views between them.
