Are You Bikini-Ready? Want to Be?

Last weekend I was snowbound. Today it’s 70 degrees. Though I find romance and relaxation in a snowbound day filled with lattes, reality television and oversized sweatpants, the days of bikinis, cut offs and tank tops are in the very near future. I have quickly accepted the fact that my current pale, not-as-toned “winterized body” is far from ideal for those warm, starry romantic summer nights.

I’ve decided to whip into “Tank Top & ‘Kini Shape”. Here are some of the new workouts to get you moving. Happy Spring Training!

RELATED Morning, Noon or Night: When is the Best Time to Work Out?

Crossfit: A strength and conditioning fitness program, uses a combination of weight lifting, gymnastics and sprinting skills. It works out the entire body and teaches participants ways to safely move without injury.

  • Cost: Depends on each location (Around $75-$175/month)
  • Date/Time: Contact your local CrossFit gym (there are more than 1,500 gyms across America)
  • The one-hour session usually begins with individuals working on whatever skill they want to improve before a five to 10-minute warm-up. Then the race is on. Everyone has a different goal in mind: to beat his own record, not someone else's.

Barre: Workouts designed to give you a long, lean dancer-like physique.

  • Date/Time: Contact your local Bare Studio
  • When you step into a barre studio you will typically find that the classroom is a large open space with mirrors and barres fixed to the wall surround the room. Typically, classes are just under an hour long and include a 5-10 minute warm up, 10-15 minutes of light weights, 20-30 minutes of barre exercises and 10 minutes of floor work.
