Are you looking for an exciting fitness class for your 2020? Here are 6 of them!
The secret to choosing the right fitness class for you is choosing something that will help you achieve your fitness goals… and choosing something that you will be motivated to keep going to.
After all, that’s the key with fitness: applying effort persistently over time. And on that note, here are 6 amazing classes for your (post-quarantine) 2020.
1). High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
If you’ve never heard of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and you like amazing workouts, it may be time to learn all about it.
HIIT is a cardio-focused fitness program combined with strength- and abs-focused training, all of it in short bursts. The idea is that you do some exercises, take a very short rest, and get back to it. Repeat, and feel the calories burning as your muscles gain strength and endurance.
And since fitness classes are better with music, try in-Haus HIIT: it’s a killer combination of great workout music and fantastic exercise that will help you get the most out of your fitness practice.
2). Muay Thai
So how does one do Muay Thai, anyway? The answer lies in learning a mixture of punches, kicks, and a fair bit of sparring. It’s fantastic cardio, and it will absolutely strengthen your whole body.
If you like the idea of Muay Thai but aren’t too keen on punching and being punched in the face, why not try kickboxing?
It’s definitely the perfect fitness class to help you build strong legs, but it’s a lot more than that: with kickboxing you have to use your core or your back muscles, meaning it’s more of a whole-body workout.
Kickboxing is one of those exercise classes that will require you to put in a lot of hard work, but if you do you’ll get an amazing payoff. It’s hard to beat kickboxing for the combination of cardio intensity and muscle strengthening.
First things first: if you like suspension and want to build strong arms, TRX is for you.
That’s because TRX is an entire workout that revolves around suspending yourself from a central bar.
If you were to look at a TRX setup, you might think you were looking at a swing set frame minus the swings. The straps hang down from a central bar in between two A- or upside-down V- frames.
That’s the beauty of TRX: you hang from the central bar, and then your arms and your core get a fantastic workout as you go through the exercises. You can also workout other parts of your body, including the legs and buttocks.
If you’re really trying to work on your core and your arms, take a serious look at TRX.
Do you want a workout that will engage your arms, legs, and core? How about a workout that will also offer fantastic cardio?
If you answered yes both times, rowing may be perfect for you.
Rowing is fantastic for your arms, your core, and even for your legs – after all, you’re engaging all three. At the same time, you’re burning calories and getting great cardio.
It’s really hard to beat rowing as an exercise that offers a great workout all over, is amazing cardio, and on top of that is low impact – and that means rowing even beats out cycling.
If you’re looking for something amazing, give rowing some serious consideration.
6). Dance Fitness
Since we’ve featured several very intensive workouts, it’s worth closing with dance fitness. The great thing about dance fitness is that it’s accessible and fun: it doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or a serious fitness hobbyist, dance fitness is something you can enjoy.
There are numerous dance fitness options, too. One popular dance fitness class is Zumba, which features energetic, upbeat music and a series of dance moves that will work out your core, your legs, and your arms. And yes, it is cardio-intensive!
Another option is Bokwa, a South African hip-hop dance fitness class. Like Zumba, Bokwa offers a great cardio workout.
The 6 fitness classes profiled here offer you quite different experiences, but all of them are amazing in their own way.
You can get a fantastic workout, build muscle, and do great cardio with any of the exercises featured here. The secret to making them work for you is choosing something that will help you advance your fitness goals, and that you will be motivated to stay with. Good luck, and may your 2020 be a fantastic year of fitness.
