The Active Grid

The grid is a modern indoor playground for all people who enjoy functional training. In other words, this is my ideal grown up playground! 😉 The Active Grid™ is the trademark of Virgin Active RED. The purpose is to motivate people to go “back-to-basics” and provide training programs for beginners to advance people.

RED Workout Programs

This is the answer to a lot of gym-goers! I might know what I am doing in the gym, but the truth is. A lot of people do not know. The RED Workout programs is great way to guide a person through a series of exercises. You can collect a RED Workout card from the wall each with a specific goal:

  • 20 Minutes Git Fit
  • 5 Minutes Stretch
  • 10 Minutes Strength

It is as easy as; collect a card, get the equipment you will need, find a spot on the Active Grid™ and GO!

RED Equipment

Hello new gym toys! You will see a few new gym equipment and might not be familiar to you. The TRX resistance bands are suspending from a gross bar. This can also be used for pull-ups and has a rail for the punching bags to movable. There are ropes, kettlebells, rubber tubes and sandbags (also banana shaped sandbags)

Other uber RED things

You will also find two studios for spinning and aerobic training. Both studios run without any  staff, no instructors at all!  The glory of it is they have a group training every hour on the hour. This is guided by automative videos that you can follow along. The only downside is that there might only be X amount of videos. I might have to do one demo video more than once.

The same goes for the stretch area that has a few videos on loop for stretching and Yoga. As well as abs and Pilates movements. Get a mat, follow the video and be guided through the correct stretches.

A custom DJ box, I mean come on. Does it get any better than this?
