It is 2021 and a lot of the people I know said that exercising more was their main New Year’s resolution. Since people are still working at home, there is a lot more time than there used to be to incorporate a great exercise routine into their schedules.
While it fills up time, joining a fitness class does not have to be for the sake of losing weight. For many people, they find that exercise classes have many benefits.
Here are the best fitness classes that you can take advantage of in 2021.
This particular fitness routine has grown more and more popular over the last couple of years and it isn’t hard to see why. For those who don’t know, CrossFit is a functional fitness class that combines cardio with strength training. This helps you in real life by building muscle strength
over multiple areas in your body.
Be careful though: because of its intensity, it can be very easy to injure yourself when you overdo the exercises. But if you want a more comprehensive routine, check it out.
Spinning, or indoor cycling, is an indoor biking exercise that simulates you biking up and down a mountain. The main difference is that you do your biking inside to the beat of energetic music that your instructor provides. While biking, you are instructed to twist a knob on your machine
to add some resistance and weight.
Because of the amount of high-energy biking you do during a class, you will burn a lot of calories, leading to weight loss. This can be a great high-intensity exercise class to do for a couple of days a week.
3. Cardio Boxing
If you are a beginner, are just beginning to exercise regularly, or want to have some fun while exercising, doing cardio boxing may be a great option for you
Boxing in a class can be done either with punching bags and full-fledged gloves or in front of an instructor where you only copy their punching moves. Because of its simple concept, it can be easy for students to get a handle of. It can also be a great method to release any physical or emotional tension or stress and lose weight.
Punch a bag and fit it into your new year’s routine!
While you may think that only middle-aged or older people do Pilates, you may be surprised to learn that Pilates can have many benefits for you no matter your age.
Pilates can be done with a few methods, but the most common ones are either with a mat or a machine called a Reformer. Mat Pilates is when you do all of your pilates exercises on the floor and work on core strength. When using the Reformer, you work on your entire body’s strength, endurance, flexibility, balance, and coordination.
Pilates can be great to do if you want to relieve any pain or lose some weight.
5. Hot Yoga
Yoga can be great to do in the comfort of your home or at the gym, but what if you also added some heat into the mix? That happens when you participate in hot yoga. In hot yoga, the temperature is adjusted to 105 degrees, and the humidity increases between thirty and fifty degrees.
Because of the heat and yoga stretches done, you can get the heart pumping. Also, the sweat will release any toxins in your body and relieve any stress you have. When doing this, it is essential to stay hydrated and drink a lot of water to offset the amount of sweat you may
procure during the class.
So there you have it! A variety of fun classes to choose from to spice up your fitness journey this year.
