5 Classes Everyone Should Try

I am a big fan of group classes. Now I don't do them everyday, but I do incorporate them into my routine to take the, well, routine out of my workout. Here are my top five classes that I am always encouraging others to check out at least once:

  1. Spinning
  2. Cardio Kickboxing
  3. Boot Camp
  4. Speedball
  5. Tai Chi

Which group exercise class/es make your top five list? Tell me in the comment section below.

1. Spinning (I was so nervous when I tried it for the first time, but now I get such a high from going. The instructors have been great when new people join the class, helping them set up the bikes and explaining how the class will be). 2. Vinyasa Yoga 3. Boot Camp (it kicks my bum every time I go!) 4. Power Yoga

I LOVE spinning! The class i went to today at Bally has a way of measuring your resistance. The teacher comes around with this gun looking thing and gives you a goal to reach by the end of the class. It is fantastic! Really kicks your butt. I also enjoy the classes that incorporate cardio and strength. those are always the BEST workouts. http://fitandhealthygal.blogspot.com/

Aerobic striptease!! My favorite are the lap dance sessions; they're more strength training and toning than cardio, but still soooo much fun! I really don't like kickboxing classes though; I'm a karate instuctor and doing similar moves but with very little power behind them due to the focus on cardio really frustrates me. I much prefer spending 30 minutes doing interval training with a punching bag; the cardio benefits are still there but I can get my karate practice in as well.

i actually just signed up for boot camp through one of my reps here in NYC and i can't wait to start. i'm sure that i'll get great core toning and i'll be beat every day that i go - but it'll be for a GREAT cause!

Since I took yoga (in the A.M.) for school credit I have been in love with it. It is the perfect class blinding hard and easy poses and it just wakes me up and gets eerything warm and moving for me. I tend to not talk in the A.M. for a few hours or am sore and groggy, but this really helps me. I want to take spinning too, but nothing is really available in my time slots. Boo!

Well, I love taking ballet classes but it's not for everyone. Advanced ballet class is great if you're already a dancer. I also like yoga but it an be a little too tedious at times and I get impatient.

renee, the good thing about spinning (at least at my gym) is that they turn the lights off in the studio so you're really not focusing on anyone else but yourself. So if you decide that it gets too hard and need to slow down, no one will notice! :)

I want to try spinning, but I guess I'm nervous. It looks so hard! One day I'll get in there. I'm not too big on classes usually. I took a cardio kick boxing class once it was okay, the teacher annoyed the hell out of me. My gym doesn't have a ton of classes. I like to do yoga on my own and have some cheesy workout videos I do alone too. When no one is around so they don't laugh haha
