5 new fitness trends you need to know about

If you’re anything like me, this recent spate of sunshine we’ve been having will have got you thinking, ‘oh heck, I have NOT achieved my summer body goals yet.’

But if spending hours on a treadmill just isn’t for you, then why not try one of these new and unusual work outs? Get the leg warmers and leotards ready…

Boxerina @Β Paola’s BodyBarre, London

Ballet-inspired barre work outs have been popular for a while now. But the team at Paola’s Bodybarre have created this super cool hybrid ballet/boxing class, for girls who are elegant yet bad-ass.


Clubbercise @ locations across the UK

Have you ever been shaking your thang in the club thinking, wow, this is a PROPER work out? Well now you really can turn your disco dancing into a full body power session in the form of Clubbercise. The best part? No hangover the next day.


Toning to tunes @ Ministry Does Fitness, London

Clubbers’ favourite Ministry of Sound has launched Ministry does Fitness, its gym studio and bar in South London. Β You’ll find a class for every need here, with Cardio, Strength, Fitness, Core and Yoga classes on offer. Whatever you go for, you know the music will be BANGIN’.


VogaΒ @Β House of Voga

Are you familiar with voging? It’s the dance style favourited by drag queens and made famous by Madonna’s song. Voga combines this form of ‘striking a pose’ with conventional yoga, to create a fun and energetic full-body work out.


Girls Who Lift @ Abi Hardy Personal Training

If you even vaguely follow the world of fitness then you’ll know it’s all about weightlifting right now. But taking the first step into the weights room can feel really daunting. Let me introduce Girls Who Lift, a group set up by London personal trainer Abi Hardy to teach you the right techniques to set you on the road to a toned bod in no time.
