As gyms are beginning to reopen around the world, regular workouts are back on the agenda. However, after months of little to no exercise (and more quarantine snacking than we’d care to admit), the prospect of an intense HIIT class is just slightly overwhelming – and you’re definitely not alone. Instead of charging in, ease yourself back into your fitness routine with a fun workout that’ll get your heart rate pumping. From boxing to aerial yoga, these exercises will get your endorphins flowing and your body moving in a way that actually feels good.
If you feel as if your stress levels have (understandably) spiked this year, it’s the perfect time to pick up boxing. While any form of exercise will release mood-bosting endorphins, taking your stress out on a punching bag is incredibly cathartic. Boxing is also a great cardio workout, which is ideal if you’re wanting to burn calories without hopping on a treadmill. A lot of boxing classes also coordinate the moves to music to help you maintain a consistent tempo. However, there are also tons of virtual boxing classes if you can’t or don’t want to go to a gym right now.
Not only can it help alleviate back pain, but it can also improve blood circulation, all the while, helping you achieve more advanced yoga poses for a more intense stretch. After 60 minutes in a hammock, muscles felt stretched and soothed. It’s also a lot easier than it looks, and many classes include guided meditation and breathing exercises, which are great stress relievers.
Roller skating is one of the biggest workout trends. Some roller skating videos have reached over one million views in less than 24 hours. That aside, it’s a killer workout as it utilizes every muscle in your body, helping you burn anywhere between 350 to 600 calories an hour. Just be sure to invest in good quality equipment, including a helmet, wrist guards, elbow pads, and knee pads, to avoid injury.
Last but not least, dancing. As it’s a whole-body workout, you can burn (roughly) the same amount of calories as a gentle jog. We’d recommend taking a dance class to make the most of your workout, either virtually or in person. Learning an Instagram dance from start to finish is surprisingly great cardio.
