Unique Fitness Classes to Try in the New Year
The good thing about the New Year is that it brings about a fresh start and new opportunities to look after our bodies. Let’s ditch our regular fitness classes to try out one of these fun, alternative classes.
1. POUND® AT XP FITNESS HUB
POUND® is the world’s first cardio jam session inspired by the fun of playing the drums. The full-body workout uses lightly weighted drumsticks (Ripstix®) engineered for exercise and combines cardio, conditioning, and strength training with yoga and pilates-inspired movements. It heavily relies on stability-based exercises to keep your body aligned, symmetrical and lean. The workout is easily modifiable to different fitness levels and instructors are trained to provide regressed versions of intense movements when necessary.

5. DANCING IN THE DARK AT NO LIGHTS NO LYCRA
Having taken over the globe, the idea behind No Lights No Lycra is to give people a space where they can get their groove on away from chaotic clubs and in a non-judgmental environment. For one hour, dancers can boogie their way to fitness as they get down to classic hits. There’s no better way to get fit while having a blast!
