Jukari Fit to Flex class is a fun instructor-led class that draws from the spirit, artisty and flexibility of the French Canadian troupe to offer us mere mortals a chance to apply the same level of discipline and achieve their enviable, lithe physiques – well, as close as possible anyway.

Designed by Cirque du Soleil in conjunction with Reebok, the class requires the use of the patented light-weight elastic Jukari Band, which you hook around your feet or hands, and use to perform a series of unique moves designed to improve your core strength, and sculpt and lengthen your body.

The class involves elements of Pilates, dance and yoga, set to Cirque du Soleil music, and is quite high-energy – you’ve got to be fit to be a trapeze artist after all.

If that’s not convincing enough, Kelly Brook is the celebrity face behind the brand, and she’s fit.
