We like to focus on our health year-round, but let’s be honest, there’s something about summer (we’re pretty sure it’s the short shorts and bikinis on deck) that kicks our booties into gear to get in shape. So, we have been trying out our fair share of workouts both at home (thank you, YouTube) and at new gyms (thank you, Class Pass). And today, we’re sharing the fun workouts we have tried and loved with you here. Give one or all of these a go when you’re in a fitness rut, looking to embark on your workout journey, or just want to try something new and exciting.
1. For a workout at your fingertips, download the Love Sweat Fitness app. There’s a free version and a paid version of this app, and the daily at-home workouts are easy to do anywhere! It also has features like playlists within the app and a hydration tracker to keep you drinking enough water all day long. Plus, it’s super user-friendly.
2. Cardio Pilates – This style workout is a combination of both the treadmill and a pilates reformer—our two favorites in one! There are multiple studios in LA that are now offering classes, examples include: Coreology around Los Angeles and the South Bay, and Fitmix Studio in Los Angeles.
9. If you want a specific program and timeline to shape up for summer, join in on the Women’s Health Summer Workout Challenge. It focuses on building strength with trainer Bree Branker over the course of 4 weeks, and features designated workouts for upper body, lower body, full body, and abs that you improve at each week.
10. Kayla Itsines offers another organized program for those of you who can stick to something for 12 weeks. If that’s you, bravo! You will love her Sweat App, which guides you easily through her 28 minute workouts that increase in difficulty over the course of the 12 weeks. With a timer and how-to images of the moves, it’s fool-proof, and yes, fun!
