There are a lot of new fitness trends that promise to give you an amazing body, I’m the skeptic, there is so much false advertising in this industry and as a professional dancer and fitness trainer, I know what really works. Here are my two favorite workouts for Spring season (if you want to get in bikini shape for Summer, you need to start asap), check them out!
1. Barry’s Bootcamp
Barry’s Bootcamp has had a lot of media attention lately, and celebrities like Amanda Seyfried, Jessica Biel and Katie Holmes love the workout, so I decided to test it out earlier this year. What’s my opinion? Love it!
I burned close to 800 calories during my workout and it felt like the fat melted off my body. It combines intense cardio with strength training, the trainers are highly qualified and hot (which is just the icing on the cake), and they use night club lighting and the most current music, which is very important for a music junkie like me. It’s an affordable and fun solution to fitness. (Link: Barry’s Bootcamp)
2. Physique 57
Interval training taken to the next level! It’s an innovative workout that combines isometric exercises and orthopedic stretches to systematically lengthen and sculpt your muscles to create a beautiful, lean body. Celebs like Demi Moore, Denise Richards, and Kelly Ripa are all huge fans of this workout, with bodies like that, I had to give it a try. Last week was my first visit, the 57 minute workout went by so fast, I can’t wait to go back and do it again! (Link: Physique 57).
