Best classes for a bikini body

Best classes for a bikini body

With so many workout plans being touted your way, it’s hard to know where to turn sometimes for the best options. When it comes to getting the best bikini body workout, there are a few classes you should consider:

Boot camp or circuit training: This type of class focuses both on strength work, and aerobic exercise, so you build on your base strength, tone and condition your body, and raise your heart rate to keep fit. Definition is reached on areas like the abs, bum and tum, with targeted exercises including squats, sit ups and lunges.

Zumba and dance: Aerobically these classes are up there with the best. They help with weight loss, and help to condition key areas such as the core, arms, bum and abs. Often fast paced, you’ll need a certain sense of rhythm to keep up with this one.

Yoga and Pilates: These classes help to lengthen the muscles and improve flexibility, but it’s important to team them with a more aerobic workout plan. A running or swimming session complements perfectly a flexibility workout.

Strength training: Lifting weights is one way to balance out your fat to muscle ratio and really give your body definition. Start slowly with low weights and gradually increase the weight you are lifting to really work the muscles and give your body a sculpted look.

Between these four types of workout, you can pick and choose a perfect workout to suit your lifestyle and achieve that perfect bikini body!
