FITNESS: brand new sports activities in Bayahibe

Viva Wyndham Resorts

Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach and Viva Wyndham Dominicus Palace introduced engaging new activities, included in the all-inclusive package!

The Pa Tuan Chin is a martial arts exercise based on diaphragmatic breathing and the use of eight pieces of fabric. Warriors of ancient China performed this exercise to warm up and loosen joints. Kyusho Jitsu is an Eastern discipline. It is a self-defense technique, which teaches how to knock the opponent out by focusing pressure points. It is also practiced “peacefully” to restore energy balance.

TRX Suspension Trainer is an original training system that uses gravity and body weight to perform hundreds of suspension training exercises.  Swing Stick is a training technique, which uses a vibrating stick, improving posture and strengthening connective tissue. Vibration training improves also agility and balance.

Paddle Fitness strengthens abdominal muscles and improves balance through exercises performed lying on a paddleboard in a pool.

Bike Surfing is a brand new sport that combines the surfboard to the movement of the bicycle placed on it:  it is an aerobic workout, since seawater creates friction.

For the amusement of the guests, two games have also been introduced: FSBalls is a game where the participants have to throw soccer balls provided with Velcro against an inflatable target; in Giant Bolas, you will walk on the sand inside transparent plastic balls making them roll.

In addition to this disciplines, there are also the Paddleboarding, where participants paddle on a board, and the Trapeze, with safety net, in which adults and children can perform acrobatics assisted by teachers. And don’t forget all the traditional sports: tennis, soccer, gym, archery, beach volleyball, aerobics, stretching, water aerobics in a swimming pool or in the sea, water polo, windsurfing, sailing and canoeing.

Billiards, water skiing and scuba diving are available paid services. In 2017, Viva Diving has been equipped with Nitrox tanks, a mixture that reduces decompression time and therefore extends underwater dive time.

Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach and Palace can be reached from three international airports: La Romana is 20 minutes away, Punta Cana 45 minutes and Las Americas 105 minutes.
