Oh seriously!  You’ve seen me!  I can’t even touch my toes never mind wind myself up to the ceiling on a length of ribbon.

But this morning I did join the new Jukari fitness class at my gym. It’s been designed by Reebok in collaboration with the Cirque du Soleil, and I have to tell you that if you can find this class near you, hot foot it and join in.

For about, oooooh, the first 3 minutes you feel like a complete berk flinging your stretchie band thing around, then, well, you’re working too hard to notice.

But the strange thing is, it’s fun.  And that’s a biggie coming from someone with the flexibility of a door and the enthusiasm for exercise as…..well….said door.

So go on. Try it.  You might just like it.
