5 Fun Workouts for Your Beach Bod

Okay, guys and gals.  Summer is fast approaching, and we know better than to wait last minute to get back in to tiptop shape.  We get it, work outs can get pretty boring and the monotony is typically the reason to why so many people often give up on their fitness goals and plans.  For this very reason, we took the due diligence to put together a list of work out activities that will get your heart pumping, blood flowing, body toning, and mind blowing, all at once.  With these work outs, we can guarantee you you’ll never get bored!

1) Soul Cycle:  If you haven’t heard of Soul Cycle, you might’ve been living under a rock.  Soul Cycle is a full body indoor cycling workout studio that started a movement and really revolutionized the cycling community.  Their music is always on point, facilities are freshly designed, young, hip and always clean, and the instructors always know how to get the party going.  They have studios in most major cities but to find the closest studio near you visit them at www.soulcycle.com

2) Pole Dancing: It sounds intimidating, but pole dancing is another amazing workout that will tone up every muscle, targeting muscle areas you never even knew you had.  If it’s the stripping, heels, and outfits that terrify you, keep in mind that most studios have a available a plethora of options that don’t always involve the stripping part.  On top of the work out, you’ll find that it’s a really peaceful, liberating workout.

3) Stand-up Paddleboarding (SUP)  SUP’ing is currently the fastest growing water sport in the world.  The great thing about SUP’ing is that it gives you a full body work out that improves body strength and cardio fitness, flexibility, with virtually no impact.  At the same time, you get to enjoy nature, so it hardly feels like an exercise. Most all coastal locations will have SUP rentals for a reasonable price.

4) Barre Classes: Barre-based classes use a combination of postures inspired by ballet, yoga, pilates that focuses on isometric strength training (holding the body still while contracting a specific set of muscles) combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movement. 

5) Kick-boxing Classes: Kick-boxing combines martial arts techniques and heart-pumping cardio to give a high-energy work out that guarantees to burn calories and fat fast.  Say goodbye to that belly fat and learn how to throw a mean punch while you’re at it!
