Bored at the Gym?
Of all the things in life that can become mundane and painfully monotonous, working out at the gym is certainly one of them. This isn’t a revelation of any sort, we all know this to be true so how can you spice up your weekly workouts? After some research, and even first hand experience, I found some great ways to make going to the gym a little less boring and a lot more exciting.
One of the newest workouts to hit gyms around
the country is Bollywood Dancing. Yes, I said
Bollywood. Inspired by the high-energy dance
moves seen in colorful and vibrant Bollywood
films, this workout is full of pumping music
and exotic moves that will keep you sweating
AND smiling. This is a great cardio workout,
with big-time body-toning benefits.
We are all familiar with the benefits of yoga,
but have you heard of Anti-Gravity Yoga? Neither
had I. After reading about this unconventional
workout in one of my favorite fitness magazines,
I was determined to learn more. So, here’s the
scoop. Anti-Gravity Yoga mixes up ordinary yoga
poses by incorporating a trapeze. The benefits
of this style of workout include posture
improvement and flexibility challenges.
Now, how about a work-out inspired by a
highly coveted winter recreation? Skiing!
A specialized gym in LA offers a class
titled “Aspen Ascent.” This is an intense
total body workout that focuses on
improving balance, agility, and core
strength. Where does thing skiing come
in? The workout features moves that mimic
the demands that common snow sports put
on our bodies.
Are you a fan of cirque du soleil?, now you can train just as the artists of the worlwide famous cirque du soleil. There´s a challenging discipline called Jukary fit to fly. This exercise is based in working out with a trapecio, all muscles are strenght by the movements, specially arms, back and abs.
If you simply adore how Shakira moves, you can learn how to. The only thing you have to do is learn belly dancing. This is a fun, good exercise which helps out to work hips, abs and arms…and it´s really sexy!
