If you had a New Year’s resolution of getting more active, don’t get stuck trying to meet your fitness goals with a boring regimine. If you are looking for a fun way to keep yourself active, try one of these unconventional options to change up your routine and get your body moving.
Adult Ballet Class
Barre classes are having their heyday right now, but if you want something a little lower energy and full of precision, adult ballet may be the perfect way to gain flexibility and tone while learning something entirely new. While ballet isn’t for everyone, it is a great option for both true beginners and intermediate dancers returning after many years off the stage.
If regular yoga just isn’t exciting anymore, perhaps it’s time to take to the skies. Aerial yoga is becoming more popular and is certainly a change from your normal fitness routine. Aerial yoga is a combo of traditional yoga poses and Pilates, utilizing a hanging hammock. This art form takes its cue from aerial silk dances that you might see on stage, but channeled into a less strenuous class for those looking to enhance their flexibility and strengthen their core.
Aqua Stand Up
If you are a water-lover, this is the class for you. Designed to improve balance and strength, this class utilizes a surfboard-like platform secured to a pool. Class members do various fitness moves while on the board, making standard push ups and burpees more complex and interesting.
Many indoor trampoline parks offer classes to get adults moving like you did during your childhood. What could be more fun than jumping around? Make no mistake though, while this activity is sure to please, it will burn a lot more calories than you might think!
Whatever you decide to try, don’t let boredom keep you from being active this year. With all the unique activities to try, you’re sure to find something you love.
