Fitness studios are entering a new era. From now on, there should be no more complaining about the old and dull exercising routines. If you got bored of the same gym, if you hate running on a treadmill and refuse lifting heavy objects, here are some new fitness trends that might freshen up your perspectives:
How about an exercise based on yoga, ballet, swimming and gymnastics? Gyrotonic Expansion System or the GSX is the invention of Juliu Horvath, a Hungarian ballet dancer. Although the machines look rather frightening, almost anyone who tried it, labeled this as ‘the modern yoga’. The class combines movements from ballet, tai chi, yoga, gymnastics and swimming for an all around fitness experience.
For cardio workouts fans, this may not be the right choice. However, if you like stretching like a cat, this will be your bet. These bars elegantly combine resistance and strength. If you order them online, they even come with a DVD and interactive diet guide. The routine mixes both seated and standing moves, which will make you feel as light as a hairball. Some say it could beat Pilates!
The next craze caught the whole Hollywood. Who would think that sweating profusely could be so sexy?
Ladies, here is what happens when spinning meets yoga: Spynga.
Mixing is like engaging mind, body, spirit and every single muscle. Some celebrities even say that this is the best workout ever. It starts with a high-speed turn on the bike, and continues with the deep relaxation of a yoga class. According to fitness experts, this is the ultimately workout, which nourishes the body and the mind, simultaneously. That is a deep ‘fountain of youth’ you might want to dive in.
Let us not forget that taking care of our bodies does not have to be drudgery. Even more, let us have fun!
