Hanging out in the club

Posted: Updated:

Well, I didn't exactly fly through the air with the greatest of ease. But I did take an introduction to anti-gravity yoga.

Are you tired of hanging out in a typical gym? Bored with doing yoga with your feet on the ground? Looking for an exercise that will actually make you taller?

Well, the Baja Body Athletic Club on South Coast Highway may be your kind of place.

“We're not necessarily for those who are just getting off the couch and getting back into it, but we're for those who love to live an active lifestyle,” said Jonathan Graves with Baja Body Athletic Club.

In a crowded field of gyms and fitness centers, Baja Body Athletic Club has found a niche.

“Wwe're the first and only commercial athletic facility in the country to offer a complete Olympic grade sand training studio,” said Graves.

Just blocks from the beach in Oceanside, they've imported 50 tons of Olympic grade, professional sand for their workouts.

“It protects your joints. It's ergonomic. So you have 100 percent support, when you’re in the sand,” continued Graves.

It's above the sand that Graves's wife, Nicole, teaches her anti-gravity yoga classes.

And Nicole will tell you the benes are many:

“The first benefit is going to be your spine. It will elongate your spine.”

Baja Body Athletic Club also offers the latest in fitness tracking.

But you're going to have to hang out for a while, Baja Body doesn't open until this weekend.

    Nicole Ahsinger has a little more bounce to the ounce than the average 16-year-old. In fact, she's been jumpy in a Poway gym for quite a few years.
