Danny MacAskill back on a trials bike and back doing what he does better than anyone else in the world. The most creative mind on two wheels?
Gymnasium is the latest collaboration between Danny and Red Bull, a relationship going back 10 years that has seen films such as Way Back Home, Imaginate and Wee Day Out.
Behind the scenes
Whilst we really like the blink-and-you-ll-miss-it list of pun names on the receptionist sign-on sheet (Jim Buff, Max Gainz, Hew Jarse, Mia Strong, Ben Schpress…) there’s no escaping the fact that the bit with the two slack-lines is actually amazing.
UPDATE: if this new video wasn’t enough for you (what’s the matter with you, by the way?) then Red Bull have also just released a Best of Danny MacAskill super-edit. Here it is…
Red Bull press release
Personal Trainer sessions not working out? Would rather give HIIT a miss? You’re not alone, as Scottish Trials Bike legend Danny MacAskill shows us in his new film that there are other ways to make your mark in the gym.
Not a regular gym-goer by his own admission, YouTube sensationDanny stars in his new film ‘Gymnasium’ – created in collaboration with Red Bull – and attempts to show the world that staying in shape doesn’t have to be daunting.
In his latest return to our screens, Danny seeks refuge from the ‘New Year, New Me’ craze by creating his personalised fitness playground in a long forgotten hall at his local sports complex. Even though performing a perfect bar routine while still on two wheels isn’t for everyone, Danny has found that it’s a case of no chain, no gain as he’s able to do what he loves and stay in shape at the same time.
Danny MacAskill says, “It’s fair to say that gyms aren’t really my natural habitat! I take my hat off to people who go every day to stay in shape, as I much prefer to hop on my bike and keep myself fit that way. We wanted this video to be a reminder to all those looking to get fit in 2020, that you don’t have to be miserable, there’s plenty of fun ways to hit your fitness goals. For me, it has and will probably always be my bike.”
