Four Fresh Forms of Indoor Fitness

FourFreshForms-01When the temperature drops this winter, don't let your motivation for exercise fall along with it. Cold weather doesn't have to put a chill on your fitness routine, even if the treadmill or stair-stepper seems boring compared with jogging or riding your bike outside. It is important to ask yourself: How can I make exercise different to make it more motivating? Consider these four indoor fitness choices:

KICKBOXING is a high-intensity exercise that uses martial arts kicks and punches in an aerobic class setting. If you're a beginner, start slowly and work up to more complicated moves.

INDOOR CYCLING tones the lower body, works your heart and lungs, and burns 350 to 600 calories per 45-minute class. During a fitness class the instructor takes you on a virtual ride, changing the speed and resistance along the way.

THE POOL can provide a workout at a high intensity with almost no impact on the joints because the effects of gravity decrease in the water. Your workout isn't limited to the endless back-and-forth of lap swimming thanks to water aerobics and other classes that take place in pools.

RACQUETBALL uses almost every muscle in your body and your heart rate stays high even when you stop between points.
