Letâ€™s face it, finding a workout you love to do andÂ sticking with it is hard. I urgeÂ everyone to start slow and do something comfortable. If you love dancing, there areÂ many dance workouts you can do either at home or inÂ a gym. Also, donâ€™t let one badÂ workout keep you from continuing your health and wellness journey. What do Imean? Ok, you tried running and hated it. Donâ€™t stop your journey–just pick something else to try. I personally love to switchÂ things up and find many differentÂ types or workouts enjoyable. Here are a list of workouts I love and why! If anythingÂ strikes your fancy, TRY IT. It never hurts to try.
Nikkiâ€™s List of Favorite Workouts
Spin, in my opinion is the best HIIT (high intensity intervalÂ training) you can get! Biking is easy on the joints, but donâ€™t let that fool you. OneÂ hour long class can torch up to 1000 calories. Thatâ€™s pretty epic!
Whether youâ€™re going to your local park, gym, orÂ doing a DVD,Â bootcamp style workouts are great for full body conditioning. If youâ€™re like me andÂ like to get it all done in one sitting, then why not try a class that combines cardio,Â plyo, and bodyweight exercises? Plus the atmosphere can be super fun.
I rarely take dance at a studio, but I love my DVD collection of danceÂ workouts. Sometimes I find that my best workouts are the ones that donâ€™t feel likeÂ workouts. Iâ€™m so distracted by having a good time and shaking my booty that I donâ€™tÂ realize that I was just sweating for the past hour.
Ladies, before you freak out, let me sayâ€¦ LIFTINGÂ WILL NOT MAKEÂ YOU BULKY. Trust me, unless your body is producingÂ testosterone, weight liftingÂ will make you look tight and defined. The key is to train a different section of theÂ body every workout. Cardio will not give you definition, so if you want nice muscleÂ tone, you have to pick up a weight every so often.
