It's natural to pile on a few extra kilos during the cold months, thanks to a diet that favors fats and carbs to help combat the winter chill. However, now that summer is here, it's time to get in shape and fast. And if there's one name that's synonymous with getting shredded, it's CrossFit.
CrossFit gyms have amassed a cult-like following over the past few years with dedicated gym rats who live for their daily intense workouts. If you've never thought of yourself as the CrossFit types till now, these four hot workout trends just may get you to change your mind:
- Indoor Cycling or Spinning: Indoor cycling is ideal for city slickers who want to reap the benefits of cycling without actually going outside. Unlike regular cycling though, you have the added benefit of a coach who'll motivate you to exceed your limits and burn more calories than the average cyclist in a brief period of time.
- Suspension Training: With the aid of TRX Suspension Trainer, a portable training tool(high quality, endurable suspenders) that leverages gravity and the user’s body weight, Suspension Training helps you develop core stability, strength, and flexibility. It's also surprisingly user-friendly and a person at any fitness level can use it.
- Interval Training: Unlike popular cardio workouts like jogging, which focuses on repeating the same motion throughout, Interval Training workouts are designed to alternate periods of high-intensity exercise with low-intensity recovery periods, thus burning more calories in a shorter span of time.
- Personal Training: CrossFit trainers undergo rigorous training sessions and have to meet a whole host of eligibility requirements before they're certified to conduct training sessions. As personal trainers, they create workout regimes that are best suited to the individual client, making it that much more effective.
