There were celebrities and “fitness influencers” in the crowd that turned out last Sunday for “Wine Surfset”, at which Surfset Thailand gym trainers demonstrated how workouts might be more enjoyable over a glass of Australia’s Jacob’s Creek wine.
The sweat session at Siri House on Bangkok’s Soi Somkid took the “beer and yoga” fad one step further with exercises done on a surfboard and delectable wine at hand.
Jacob’s Creek has a new “Bring Your Australian” promotion based on Aussie pastimes such as surfing, giving people a chance to “hang ten” without having to trek to the beach.
And the “total-body surfing workout” forms the basis for techniques used at Surfset Thailand gyms.
After Sunday’s workout, guests were invited to join in an Aqua Zumba class, which is a high-energy aquatic exercise set to music.
The wines being sipped included mellow Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir, dry and fresh Le Petit Rosé and sweet Sparkling Moscato Rosé, which has a light hint of Moscato grapes, berries and lychees.
