DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — In recent years, both city and business owners have taken a great interest in downtown Dothan; promising to change the way people eat, drink, and work out in the Circle City.

Robin Thagard, the owner of Fly By Bungee Fitness Boutique saw how officials have been inviting businesses downtown and decided to open fly by bungee, a fitness course helping reshape health in the Wiregrass.

“Where would you like to go come get a cup of coffee, come to a Fly By Bungee class, come get a sandwich, no better place than downtown Dothan,” Thagard said.

A 45-minute class dedicated to burning over 600 calories by just bungee-ing around. According to instructor at Fly By Bungee, Trenesha Jones, this exercise class works out every muscle in your body from your legs, all the way to your core.

“I really enjoy everyone that walks through that door,” Jones said. “They are so excited, I am ready to try fly by bungee fitness, I am ready to get on this harness and take it for a ride.”

Hollie Crutchfield has participated in the workout class a total of three times and said these classes aren’t only about fitness but are also about building a sense of community.

“If I can do it, anyone can do it,” Crutchfield said. “It’s amazing. It makes you feel better and that is what we all want to be the best versions of ourselves.”

Thagard said they opened on Monday and they have already had well over 100 students participate in the bungee class.
