Sometimes we need to add a little excitement to our workout routine, and May feels like the perfect month to tackle something new. If you've been looking to try out a different fitness class or exercise program, now is as good a time as ever. Here are four workout variations we're eager to try this season.
Similar to rock climbing, bouldering allows you to free climb without ropes. Because vertical climbing can be quite technical and require safety knowledge before tackling any real cliffs, we're all about this sport that allows for falls on crash pads. It seems like the perfect full body workout that's also a whole lot of fun.
Many of us forget that most gyms have a pool, and we're excited to try ours out this spring. Swimming is excellent for cardio and building endurance; it's also low-impact and kind on your bones and joints. As the days warm up, it's also a great time to cool off with a few laps.
3. Ballet Class
Not only for girls (if you haven't heard, football players take classes), ballet is both mentally and physically challenging. Practice working on your balance and building strength with isolated exercises this spring at a local studio. If you've ever dreamed of being a ballerina, now is a perfect time to enroll in an adult class.
4. Mountain Biking
If you love hiking and spending your weekend outdoors, why not explore some trails on a mountain bike? While it may feel like you're having too much fun to be getting in a good workout, we promise your muscles are working hard. Don't believe us? Just wait to see how you feel the next day. If you do give mountain biking a try, remember to stay safe and wear a helmet.
