We all know that our body needs variety to keep getting stronger. Doing the same workout day after day, although great to be exercising will only get you so far before you hit a plateau or get bored. I made a list of different things to try to get you re-inspired to get that body moving.
Biking In The Pool
You may be cycling in the gym to attain those shapely legs, now how about biking under water? Pool biking is all about using rust-resistant bikes made especially for underwater workouts. It makes for complete resistance training for the body as sweating it out in the water is a lot gentler on the joints than on land. It also improves flexibility as your muscles get more exercise. When you are done with your workout for the day, you can just dive into the water for a quick cool down.
Dance + Yoga= Gyrotonic
Always thought yoga wasn’t the thing for you? Try Gyrotonic that offers the mind and body benefits of practising yoga sans stillness and meditation. Gyrotonic is a training method based on the principles of yoga, dance, tai chi, and swimming and helps improve core strength, balance, coordination, flexibility and agility. Also called ‘Yoga for Dancers,’ this one’s ideal for those who hate monotony and wish to embrace variation in their exercise routine. This unique workout comprises spiral movements, rotation and breath work using handles and pulleys to enable movements like sweeping and arcing.
A Live-Streaming Class, Anyone?
