Workout Classes to Try This Year

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends American adults get 2.5 hours of exercise every week. Surprisingly, 80 percent of American adults fail to meet that goal. Anyone moving apartments soon should see if classes for any of the following activities are nearby. These are just a few of the ways to work up a sweat while having fun. 


SkyRobics utilizes the amazing power of trampolines to make people more physically fit. In these workout classes, bouncing up and down on the trampoline for only 10 minutes is the equivalent of jogging for 30 minutes. It is a great exercise to strengthen your muscles and organs. It also improves agility, reaction speed, flexibility and spatial awareness.
