So, why not say yes to trying something new? And you never know, you might surprise yourself with what your body can do when challenged with a new style of workout!
Muay Thai (Boxing)
Developed several hundred years ago, it’s now considered the cultural sport of Thailand. It’s essentially close combat boxing that uses the entire body and involves working all of the important muscle groups whilst improving mobility. It’s also touted as an excellent stress buster.
Tai Chi marries the mind and the body. It exercises control over movement and breathing simultaneously. Through this, Tai Chi ultimately cultivates mindfulness and serenity. Tai Chi can reduce stress, improve balance and posture, mobility and leg muscle strength.
Indoor Rock Climbing
With centers popping up everywhere and the popularity of rock climbing slowly increasing, you best find a session soon and get in before the crowds. Providing a total body work out of cardio as well as strengthening, it increases your flexibility as well as helps in supporting brain function.
You’ve heard of yoga, and you’ve heard of HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). So, what’s Yoga HIIT? Well, it’s a class that focusses on the cardio intensive workout that you get from HIIT, but interrupts throughout with stretching, restorative yoga postures. It also has a direct affect on how fast your metabolism works – give it a try!
Leaping onto the scene a few years ago, it’s still attracting lots of attendees! Still haven’t tried it? You’re missing out! With catchy music, and inspired by Latin American dance moves, Zumba can workout your entire body, improve blood pressure, help you build up your stamina and burn a load of calories too! It’s also super social and suitable for any fitness level. Go on, give it a try!
Barre combines classical ballet inspired movement and invites pilates, yoga, general dance and strength training into the mix too. Barre is quite low impact, and will help strengthen your core and up the tone of your muscles. Intrigued? Try it!
Learning to navigate a pole isn’t just an exercise that can help boost your self-esteem – it has so many physical health benefits too! It’s great for your bones and your joints, as well as your heart and blood flow. Don’t let its naughty reputation put you off - pole fitness can be empowering along side muscle defining.
Want more of a challenge? Originating in Brazil, Capoeira is martial arts meets dance put to amazing music. This is great for strength, flexibility and cardio (and it’s a lot of fun!). Capoeira is considered an art form and takes years to properly perfect (instructors have to be trained over a 7 year period!), but join a beginners class and you’ll be surprised what your body’s capabilities are!
Castor Oil: Your workout’s ultimate companion
Our all natural, paraben and sulphate free Castor Oil is one of the most effective ways to relieve joint and muscle ache after a workout! The main fatty acid in castor oil is ricinoleic acid which has been proven to reduce pain and swelling and is renowned for its anti-inflammatory properties.
Just apply the oil directly to the area in need, and let it penetrate deep into the skin and target any of the sorer areas. This will reduce inflammation and relieve any pain in a matter of hours. Castor Oil also improves blood circulation which is great for muscle rejuvenation post-workout! Organica’s Castor Oil is vegan-friendly too, so what’s not to love?
There are so many classes (and variations of existing classes) to try and boost your motivation when it comes to exercise. Don’t get tired of working out or let yourself become resentful of spending time in the gym. Let trying new ways of working the body out invigorate your relationship with movement and keep you supple, lithe and smiling!
