New year, new decade, New Year’s resolutions. It’s January and as always after the festive period the rush for the gym starts again. In some random Scottish gym a pretty famous newbie got spotted hitting the facilities. None other than Scottish Mountain and Trials Bike legend Danny MacAskill entered his local gym and made good use of the setup. As you might expect Danny’s approach on fitness and exercise is a little different to the average gym member. Good for us that he teamed up with Red Bull and his friends from Cut Media who recorded his workout laps for documentation. Make sure to lean back, hit the play button and enjoy Danny’s first project in 2020, Gymnasium.
Danny’s take on his latest project: “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 been and will probably always be my bike.”
Danny's latest project Gymnasium follows his most iconic films like Wee Day Out, Cascadia, The Ridge, Imaginate and Way Back Home.

About Danny MacAskill
Danny MacAskill stunned hundreds of thousands of viewers in a matter of hours in 2009 when his first video “Inspired Bicycles” was uploaded to YouTube by his friend and videographer Dave Sowerby. The video showed the young Scotsman, born on the Isle of Skye, perform never seen before tricks on a trials bike in the streets of Edinburgh. “Inspired Bicycles” didn’t only spark Danny MacAskill’s professional career, but also catapulted a niche sport into the spotlight of a mainstream audience. Apart from having performed in a number of major productions such as “Imaginate” (90 million views), “The Ridge” (67 million views) and “Cascadia” (58 million views), Danny has also had the honor of bearing the Olympic torch during the tour in Glasgow for London 2012, participated in a Hollywood production and been nominated for National Geographic’s “Adventurer of the Year Award”.
