Tucked away admist oil fields, warehouses, and rail yards is Fire and Ice Athletics located on Gilmore Ave in Northwest Bakersfield.  23ABC's Adam Bowles showed us the unique workout they have.

It offers bungee jump workouts, the only type of its kind in Kern County!

Its basically a workout where you can fly in the air, flip, and learn what its like to workout with barely any gravity against you.

Heather Foss opened Fire and Ice Athletics on December 7th and wanted to bring the bungee jump exercise to Kern County because of her own families' health battles.

"I was in an accident a few years ago, so I have some really bad disks in my back. My dad is 77 and he had hip replacement four times! So, he cant do any workouts unless he is in a swimming pool. Well this puts the swimming pool on a stand. Your completely weightless," Foss says.

Foss says using bungee cords is the fastest way to burn calories in such a short amount of time.

"You can burn anywhere from 1000 to 1500 calories per workout. Every two minutes we have to stop because we are huffing and puffing, but you don't realize how much work your doing because you are having a blast," Foss says.

If you want to try this workout, the address is 5225 Gilmore Ave in Bakersfield,CA.  The price is $15 for a one time class for their special. You can by a package for 10 sessions for $100. You do have to sign up online at Fire and Ice Athletics.
