7 Heart-Pumping Fitness Classes to Try This Autumn
With the colder weather creeping in, we’re definitely finding it challenging to swap our usual homebound seven-minute workout for an exercise routine that makes us leave our cozy living room. Sure, we enjoy going on a crispy fall run (if the weather isn’t too chilly), but this season we’re challenging ourselves to break out of our fitness rut by attending a hot new fitness class. Here are some of our top contenders.
1. POUND Fit: Combining cardio, conditioning and strength training, this awesome drumming-focused class is definitely rock-star approved. Each move uses Pound’s bright green Ripstixs… and yes, it is totally okay to tell people that you have rock star arms after just one class.
2. Orange Theory Fitness: Get ready to get your sweat on: The goal of this workout is to get your heart rate in the orange zone (AKA at least 84 percent of your max potential). Using common fitness equipment like indoor rowing machines, treadmills and weight training blocks, this high-energy workout will definitely kick your butt in the best possible way.
3. STRONG by Zumba: This isn’t your grandmother’s Zumba class. Set to heart-pumping tunes, class members rock out while performing high-intensity interval training. Yep, you can pretty much just think of it as a cardio-friendly sweaty concert.

4. TRX Training: This cool, gravity-defying class uses the TRX Suspension Trainer to transform your own bodyweight into hundreds of strength and toning exercises. Plus, you can always pick up one for home use too if you want to practice before your next class!
You may remember this totally rad fitness product from its time on season four of Shark Tank (and yes, they scored a wicked deal!). Now fully funded with classes across the entire country, you can surf your way to a fit body without the awkward wetsuit.
