Is There Such a Thing as Too Much Fun? Latitude Tests Your “Fun” Limits
I have to warn you that after years in Beijing, many of you may struggle to handle this much fun.
If you do go to Latitude, try to ease into the fun gently. Don’t burn out in the first 10 minutes! I went with a bunch of CrossFitters (thanks to CrossFit Slash for organizing such an awesome field trip) and even they were pooped and ready to go home after just a few hours.
Latitude is an Australian trampoline center (Melbourne to be specific) that has made its way over to Beijing. Sensibly situated in Shunyi (sorry central Beijingers…), Latitude is bound to be a hit with families and o̶v̶e̶r̶g̶r̶o̶w̶n̶ ̶c̶h̶i̶l̶d̶r̶e̶n̶ adults everywhere.
As you can see from the pictures there is a lot of space and plenty of places to bounce. They have an airbag to practice flopping onto, basketball hoops to fulfill your lifelong dream of still-failing-to-dunk-like-Jordan, climbing walls, gladiator balancing beams with cushy long battle sticks (see photo above), and much much more.

Introducing Hatsune’s January Specialty Dish of the Month
I’ve been switched on to Beef Tongue ever since The Taco Bar introduced their Lengua Tacos into my life. So for anyone who thinks Beef Tongue sounds weird, think again.
I find that it doesn’t matter where I am in the world, many different cuisines will feature beef tongue on their menus. And whenever I order a beef tongue dish, it’s guaranteed to be juicy and tender. And Hatsune’s Sizzling Beef Tongue Rice Bowl is no exception.
Showcased as their monthly featured dish of the month, this off-menu dish is worth a trip to Hatsune alone. No longer will you be only craving their California-style sushi creations. The well-marbled beef over a bed of rice and topped with diced spring onions and nori strips is served to your table still very pink. Don’t be alarmed, your server will then politely ask you for permission to pour in a small cup of thick Yakiniku sauce covered in sesame seeds. Once the sauce is poured right on top, your server will proceed to thoroughly mix up all the ingredients in the hot stone pot, which turns the beef tongue to a light brown color.

CrossFit Slash Opens Reebok’s 1st Affiliated Box in Sanlitun!
From the ashes of Middle Kingdom Fitness (MKF) rises the first officially affiliated Reebok CrossFit box in Beijing – CrossFit Slash!
Just 2 years since MKF first brought Crossfit Fitness to Beijing in what was known as “the dungeon of Guanghua Lu SOHO”, owner Tim Hill has officially moved out of his small yet functional space into a glorious new gym-come-true. Though the last gym was the size of a shoebox compared to this new monstrosity, it was home to many active Beijingers who were looking for an outlet that wasn’t conventional.

Look Out for Paleo Set Menus Available Around Town!
An initiative organized by the Middle Kingdom Fitness (MKF) team, The Caveman Challenge encourages their Crossfit goers to eat Paleo for an entire month that runs now until the Chinese New Year holiday in mid-February.
‘Eating Paleo’ is based on the notion that for optimal health, modern humans should go back to eating real, whole unprocessed foods that are more healthful than harmful to our bodies. Prioritizing grass-fed and pastured meats and eggs, wild-caught seafood, and vegetables along with a moderation of fruit, nuts, and seeds, Paleo avoids any pro-inflammatory foods like gluten-containing grains, dairy products, legumes, processed oils, and refined sugar.
In an effort to replace your system of all those holiday sweets with real foods, this is a chance for everyone to start 2015 off to a healthy start!
