Do you have any favorite fitness classes? Yoga? Spinning? Take a look at some of the newer classes on the workout scene, and tell me which you'd like to try... (paging Fitness first haha)
SurfSet Fitness: This new class just opened up at Chelsea Piers in Manhattan--and it looks awesome. You don't use a real surfboard, but a piece of surfboard-like equipment that it looks like it takes serious muscle control to stay on. In the class, you bust out lots of cardio as you mimic paddling out to sea and riding the waves.
Hoop-ercise: Were you a hula hoop master as a kid? The only equipment needed in this class is a hula hoop, which you use to "swirl, twirl, and trim your way into a fun and exciting workout.
Zenergy: Ahhh... this class is a mix of strength-building yoga poses and calorie-burning jumps and lunges--it's supposed to help get your body and mind balanced, somehow both calming you and energizing you at the same time.
Beaming: This class has actually been around for a year. It's all about balance, as it has you perched on your own low-to-the-ground padded bar. You have to engage your ab muscles, tuck in your butt, and try to stay on the beam while going through a series of poses.
