Get Fit For 2016: Week Four

Nicola Cher Geismar is the founder of  City is my Playground, which is about inspiring all types of people and ages to view their city and urban spaces around them as an adventure “play”ground.

Flex and stretch: Week Four

Follow these moves that focus on bringing strength and extension into the upper back as well as lengthening the side body, shoulders and spine.

 

Flex in the City: Week Four

Let the street structures become your friends and help support your shapes and body weight. Get creative with the types of lines you can flex with your body in connection to our urban furniture.  The legs up the wall (below) focuses on using the wall to prop up the top leg, whilst inspiring the hips to stay lifted. Think about your collar bone area as well as your focus looking up to the sky so the upper body can stay active and engaged.

Nicola would love to see your flexes in the city. Tag ‘em up to #cityismyplayground on Instagram, and she will feature some that show off the most creative use of our street structures!
