If you don't have the connections to be one of the tourists that make it to the moon with Space X in 2018, you can still defy gravity with indoor skydiving. Lindsey Granger and iFLY’s Nate Roth have three surprising benefits of the free fall.

1.  Mental Rejuvenation

A lot of adrenaline is built up in the anticipation while waiting and then as soon as you get in you feel the wind on your body and you start to really feel what it's like to fly. That feeling can replenish your mind and energy.

2. Burn Calories

Skydiving can help you lose more weight than going for your morning jog because you burn a lot of calories in there. In about a 26 minute flight session for a first timer, you're going to burn up to about 300 calories and get a full body workout. You'd only burn around 200 calories jogging for the same amount of time. An instructor like Nate burns up to 2,000 calories a day .just working with flyers!

3.  Create Confidence

It instills that fearless attitude in a lot of people and it pushes them past things they normally might not do. Your energy level and confidence are normally through the roof after a session.
