Swoop, West Allis
The only studio of its kind in Wisconsin, Swoop’s bungee classes are a full body workout–incorporating cardio, resistance training, and muscle toning. Beginners start with a one-hour course to get comfortable with the equipment, before learning more advanced moves and adding weights.
Miss Pole, Kenosha, Brookfield, & Madison
A complete strength and cardio workout, Miss Pole’s 55-minute classes teach pole fundamentals, simple spins, and easy choreography. A great way to start is with the six-week Intro to Pole Series, which focuses on developing upper-body strength and flexibility.
Wisconsin curling clubs, Various Locations
While it looks less taxing than other winter spots, curling requires a surprising amount of balance, flexibility, and overall coordination. The centuries-old spot is soaring in popularity, and Wisconsin is home to more than 40 curling clubs; many offer Learn to Curl events, as well as recreational and competitive leagues.
Wisconsin Historical Fencing Association, Appleton
Learn the historical martial art from professionally trained instructors at Appleton WHFA (Wisconsin Historical Fencing Association.) Beginners will focus on striking and defending with the medieval longsword, while experienced fencers can take specialized courses in the rapier, sabre, sword, dagger, and more. (Don’t worry; training swords are blunt, so you won’t get hurt!)
