People usually pump up their workout schedule before summer starts. That’s so they can be ready for the coming season. If you’re too late though, no worries, fitness classes abound all year round. But this time, do something new. Get into something you haven’t done before. Your local fitness center for sure offers a variety of classes you can join with a group. Sweat out all of your boredom with Zumba. Punch away all your frustrations with boxing. Try indoor cycling if you want to get the same adrenaline without getting lost in the road. Yoga is an effective practice that calms you down and strengthens your balance. As with any exercise, discipline is key. But the variety of things to do is an exciting way to push you into those gym doors with your trainers on. So move it!
