So, in spite of my looming half-marathon, I’m finding it very hard to stay motivated and fit with my running regime. The days are cold, the routes are snowy and my bed is warm…what’s a girl to do?
What I’ve noticed is a trend towards a whole variety of new fitness classes out there, and I’m looking for input on the newest and the coolest.
Here are a few classes I’ve either heard about or experienced myself in the last few months.
So many of my friends swear by these classes that I’m tempted to check them out in spite of their often ungodly start times. I can’t figure out if it’s the drill sargeant-like barking or the camaraderie atmosphere, but these classes seem to get great results.
There’s no mystery to the newfound popularity of ballet classes. If hourly sessions of barre and floor work will have me looking like Natalie Portman, than sign me up for a little Black Swan-icize.
I was invited to give these classes a try recently, and in spite of my trepidation about climbing onto a machine that looks a little like a medieval torture apparatus, I did enjoy the stretch and the burn from these classes.
Slightly cult-like, this is the class that I can’t quite pin down. Friends tell me it’s latin, cardio, boogie, addictive, 60 minutes of sweat. I’m intimidated and intrigued.
So, please weigh in (pardon the pun) and tell me what new fitness trends you’ve jumped on (again with the puns!) to help you stay fit and healthy!
