Have Fun While Breaking A Sweat

exercisingThere are rumors rolling around town that there are some new workouts that are (*gasp*) fun!

We don’t know about you, but this just simply goes against everything we know.  Don’t get us wrong—we are always open to new things. But if there were ever a day where we’d see pigs fly, today is the day.

In case you want to try this whole “fun workout thing” with us, we’re sharing the top 5 newest calorie-burning trends.

Bounce the Calories Off

This is the place of your childhood dreams: an entire room made of trampolines for as far as your eye can see. You can literally bounce the calories off and not even know you’re doing it. It’s great cardio AND leg sculpting. And bouncing is great for the lymphatic system!

Our Charleston recommendation: Sky Zone Trampoline Park.

Join the Circus for the Day

Who said you have to work out on the ground? Try your talents at the aerial sling, aerial silks, aerial hoop, or the trapeze! You will definitely feel the burn on this one. Warning: this might not be your thing if you have a fear of heights.

Our Charleston recommendation: Aerial Fit.

Walk on Water

You’ve probably seen Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) by now, but have you tried it yet? With a little help from an instructor, you’ll be up on your feet in no time! There are so many great SUP activities for all experience levels, ranging from laid-back tours of rivers and canals to more intense workout classes and races.

Our Charleston recommendation: Nature Adventures Outfitters.

Dance the Weight Off

Have you tried a Zumba class yet? This workout involves dancing off calories to high-energy music. It’s the perfect full-body workout!

Our Charleston recommendation: Pivotal Fitness.

Walk and Talk

Okay so this one isn’t a new trend, but it sure is fun! Instead of meeting your friends for coffee, plan on going for a walk together. You will still get to check in with each other, but you’ll also get to burn some calories too!
