On a Wednesday night in a fitness studio located in a strip mall in Vaughan, I was hanging onto a steel rung above my head for dear life. House music was blaring from the speakers, the instructor was enthusiastically yelling at us to push harder and my forearms were burning.
This was my first experience at Canada’s flagship FitWall studio- a fitness concept where strength-training exercises are done on a vertical steel apparatus while your arms and feet hold you up on the eight rungs. Classes are only 30 minutes, but boy do they get you feeling the burn. You can hear more about my experience in my Activity-A-Week post on Hip + Urban Girl’s Guide before you go get those biceps pumping for yourself.
