If the answer was yes to both of those questions, you’re in luck – British-based UKPaintball.co.uk are offering ‘fitness paintball’ classes as a fun fitness alternative.
Aimed at tackling obesity, participants will take on an assault course challenge while trying to avoid being hit by flying paintballs.
“Often all people need to start an exercise regime is a little encouragement, and what better motivation is there than being shot at?” said a company spokesman.
Participants will be given little protection from the paintballs with most obstacles on the course being removed to keep the woodland runners on their toes.
“There will be several shooters in place and so it’s unlikely any of those involved will be in a safe area for too long, which, combined with wanting to avoid getting hit, should result in a lot of running around, shedding hundreds of calories in the process,” the spokesman continued.
“Getting hit by a paintball can really sting and so I’m sure anyone who takes a shot will be even keener to avoid the next one, which will hopefully enable them to burn even more calories.”
