Extreme ironing is an extreme sport in which people take ironing boards to remote locations and iron items of clothing. Proudly announcing this to the office on Monday could elicit some giggles but success in this sport (officially recognized in 1999) demands skill, strength and more than a little bit of moxie. Pinned as combining the danger and excitement of an ‘extreme’ sport with the satisfaction of a well pressed shirt, extreme ironing takes work-life balance to the next level. Also brilliant for a team under stress; grab your whole accounts squad and take on the Guinness World Record for most people extreme ironing underwater—currently 173.
Where: Anywhere you like – from your own backyard to the bottom of the ocean.
Insta Motivation: Too counterculture to have a solid Instagram presence…yet.
