An arcade-style interactive fitness studio is set to launch at Kensington's Harbour Club.
Designed to be a family workout, myself and my colleague Amani Hughes, were keen to try out Prama.
We headed to Prama's headquarters in Alicante and upon arrival were debriefed by Concept Development Manager, Daniel Gonzàlez.
“We go away from the traditional gym, we try to offer a non-intimidating environment,” Mr Gonzàlez said.
“Prama is a very versatile tool where we offer an immersive experience for all different ages and levels so depending what type of content you deliver through the software you could be training people in very good shape, families, kids or athletes.
“But, the bottom line behind the workout in Prama is fun.”
Prama is designed to develop agility, balance, coordination, strength and cardiovascular fitness on an interactive floor.
He added: “Our goal was for the whole family to train together.
“You can enjoy training with your kids, they can learn different skills and physical capacities but it also a good workout for the parents.”
The studio is like a giant dance mat, luminescent shapes, dotted lines and numbers span the floor.
The lighting is dimmed and there are computer screens placed on the walls strategically around different zones.
Donned in a florescent orange t-shirt, I negotiated my way around the board, trying out the different stations and some of the 500+ exercises.
From bouncing basketballs to burpees to lunges - every muscle in my body was worked.
The twist was having to hit integrated LED lights and sensors while you are doing the exercises, which required concentration and determination.
The workout was fun and being paired in a team encouraged comradery and support.
That's not to say the workout was a breeze, the exercises were fast-paced and so was the dance-style music.
Next up, we were introduced to a handful of youngsters aged from five to 14 years old.
I was interested as to how the class could be adapted from HIIT workouts to something suitable for children.
We were shown various exercises for children which included stamping on LED lights in quick succession, jumping and hop-scotch.
The thing that most surprised me was how enthusiastic the children were. It was clear they relished taking part in the class.
The Harbour Club then showed us how the fitness studio would work for families.
They introduced competitions where the floor can detect who is most successful at the chosen exercise, as well as parent and child working together to make their way across the floor.
The activities seemed a good way of bonding as a family.
The one thing I would note is that as Prama uses computerised equipment, there is scope for it to not sync properly and there were a few tech issues while we were there.
On the whole, Prama was a fun, engaging and stimulating class that has ample opportunity for people at different levels and ages to improve their fitness.
If you are stuck of what to do with your child on a rainy day, I would recommend heading to Kensington's Harbour Club and wearing them out with a Prama class!
Prama classes will be included in the Harbour Club membership and will run on a timetable basis.
