Get Fit With Group Cardio

Haven't found an exercise you absolutely love to do? You've tried them all — ellipticals, recumbent bikes, treadmills, even the dreaded StairMaster — and hated every second of it. Well, you're not alone. But that doesn't mean there isn't an exercise out there for you. Have you ever considered working out in a group or with a friend? Often, it's the solitary nature of exercise that turns us off. Sometimes we need a support system to keep us moving. Ready to give it a try? Join a group exercise class and find out!

The advantage to exercise classes is that they're a whole lot more fun than sweating it out by yourself. Most group classes add an element of fun to the mix — like hooking you into the latest and hippest dance moves and music. Plus, when you join a group, people will look out for you, which can motivate you and help keep you accountable. Just make sure the class you take involves a minimum of 45 minutes of activity and keeps your heart rate up above 60 percent. Try any of these or other cardiovascular classes at your local fitness center or gym:

  • African dance
  • Boot camp
  • Cardio kickboxing
  • CrossFit
  • Hip-hop dance
  • Indoor cycling
  • Jillian Michaels Bodyshred™
  • Mixed martial arts
  • Obstacle or endurance training classes
  • Step aerobics
  • TRX suspension training
  • ZUMBA®
