Whether you’ve been stuffed from the recent Lunar New Year celebrations or finally looking to shed the pounds from the Christmas and New Year feasting, it is never too late to get in shape. Here are a few fun ways to help you achieve your weight goals.
Celebrity Fitness for Less
Train like Pink and Sofia Vergara – both of their trainers regularly share their fitness tips and tricks for free on Instagram. For fun, high-energy workouts and ideas for eating clean, check out Jeanette Jenkins, Pink’s personal trainer.
And if you’re looking to take your work out to the next level, Sofia Vergara’s trainer, Jay Cardiello, will be one to follow.
Gyms Like No Other
An arcade… or a gym? The lines are blurred at the Asphalt Green gym in New York. Ditching stationery bikes and treadmills in return for pressure sensitive walls that illuminate when struck, floor patterns light up to guide you in a 45-minute workout that is said to help you burn up to 1,000 calories!
For a low-impact, high-intensity workout, try Crew, a boutique rowing studio in Sydney, Australia. Tone, sculpt and strengthen with the handcrafter timber WaterRower. Pull in some friends and compete in a regatta, where you can work in teams to achieve a variety of time, distance and calorie-based goals.
Health at Your Doorstep
Eat clean and stay motivated with fitness subscription boxes. Ladies, look forward to receiving premium fitness gear, accessories and snacks every month with the Barbella Box. It’s a great way to discover new brands every month without the fuss of popping into different stores.
At Fitsnack, do good with every box you purchase. A curation of healthy snacks and the occasional bonus supplements or workout plans, look forward to fresh new items each month that underprivileged kids will also get to enjoy. Both subscriptions ship internationally.
Be a Tourist, Lose Some Calories
You could hunker down on the sofa with a family selection box and holiday movie… or you could run along art-filled streets, over historic bridges and into picturesque alleyways.
Most major cities now host jogging-cum-sightseeing tours. You can join Running Tours Melbourne for a street art tour of the city; run through the jungle with Go Running Tours in Singapore; or sign up with Secret London Runs for the Run For Your Life Ghost Tour. Now, that will help beat your personal best!
