New year new me right?! A common new year ‘s resolution among young and old is to spend more time at the gym getting fit or hitting a new body goal. Now, two weeks into 2017 you may have a groove going or you may have gotten bored and decided pizza and Netflix are more your style. If that’s the case, here are a few fitness classes to substitute your daily treadmill routine and have you looking forward to working out year round!
Pure Barre: It’s pretty safe to say Pure Barre is one of my favorite fitness classes. Looking to tone up your hips, thighs, seat, abdominals and arms? Then head to your nearest location and try a class. This 55-minute workout allows you to burn calories while building lean muscles through a variety of movements (if you have prior dance experience a lot of dance techniques are used). Looking for quick results? Try going four times a week and you will find you are gaining definition through your body. Each location offers special package deals, so check it out and get shaking!
Core Power Yoga: Looking for something relaxing or need a good stretch? Try a yoga class. With yoga growing in popularity Core Power Yoga has been popping up across the country offering a variety of classes from beginner to advanced. The studio offers a wide selection of memberships from single classes to package deals. Did I mention students get their first week free!
Barry’s Bootcamp: Voted “Best Celebrity Workout” by Allure and Los Angeles Magazine no wonder Barry’s Bootcamp locations been popping up across the U.S! This hour-long class incorporates cardio and strength training to get a well-rounded workout. Each class offers new workouts and upbeat music making each class fun as well as leaving you with noticeable results. I have not tried it yet, but it’s on my 2017-bucket list
SoulCycle: No matter your skill set everyone should at some point try a spin class! I first tried my first spin class in 2013 and I was hooked! SoulCycle is a fantastic 45-minute workout that offers spin gurus with a full-body cardio workout. SoulCycle offers a variety of packages from one ride to 30 classes (note: classes do come at a steep price). Be sure to reserve your bike online as classes fill up fast!
