Adidas Runbase Boxing + The Escobar
FIGHT FOR YOUR SUNDAY AND THEN COOL DOWN IN A POOL WITH A DRINK. SOUNDS DREAMY.
START: Adidas Runbase, Schleusenufer 4, 10997 Berlin.
FINISH: The Escobar, Eichenstrasse 4, 12435, Berlin.
U / S - BAHN: Schlesisches Tor / Treptower Park (Berlin).
THE WORKOUT: Sunday 12.15pm Boxing - Speed with Dany. Don't let the Sunday sad hit you in the face. Fight back! Strong women fight for their goals and Dany is no different. Her class is a combination of fitness, kickboxing and martial arts, while you develop a stronger mindset. Boxing not only improves your physical strength but also increases mental strength so you learn to keep your focus and determination. Dany is a brilliant teacher. A practised boxer herself, she leads a series of technical drills alongside exercises to test movement co-ordination, power and endurance. In the summer when the weather is fine the class takes place outdoors in the giant exercise playground of the runbase. Although Dany makes sure she modifies all the moves to suit all levels of fitness, make no mistake this is a demanding workout for core and upper body strength. By the end you will feel powerful, strong and most definitely fatigued.
THE DRINKS: After class, refuel with a tasty bowl from The Lab Kitchen, just inside the Runbase. The food is freshly made on-site, with four plant-based bowls to choose from (as well as a seasonal weekly special). Really hungry boxers should order the Blue Bowl with sweet potato wedges, scrambled tofu, guacamole, marinated beans, corn and lentils and mixed salad. For something on the lighter side, the Green Bowl is packed with vegetables on a bed of quinoa and a big dollop of hummus and yoghurt. After lunch head over to Berlin Arena which houses the Escobar and Badeschiff for some drinks, sunbathing and spree-side dipping. You’ll find the Escobar sundeck bar above the Badeschiff. From here you have an epic view of the Spree, the Badeschiff and the perfect spot to enjoy some drinks on a Sunday afternoon. Make sure you have a dip into the pool to stay cool in the heat. Most of all enjoy it! You earned it!
THE PRICE: Runbase: Single drop-in class €10. Class pack of three €25. It is also on Classpass and Urban Sports Club. Entry to the Badeschiff €6.5 (full day). Drinks: beer €4.5, cocktails from €6.
BEST FOR: A bad-ass workout and a fun Sunday afternoon.
