There’s just no getting around it: summer is nearly here and I’m guessing your bod is not entirely beach ready. Yeah. Neither is mine. But that’s OK. We live in a world now where there’s a new fitness craze every time you turn around. So ditch the boring gym and try some of these new workouts that will surely get you ripped in no time:
If you’re a Rat, Dragon, or Monkey, you gotta try P90x. Yeah, you’ve seen the cheesy infomercials. It looks kinda silly. But let me tell you – it works! Why drop a bunch of dough on something like this? Well, you three signs need both the mental and physical challenge of something tough when it comes to working out. This system totally delivers. You’ll be entertained, engaged, and – oh yeah – buff as heck!
Sounds simple, right? Wrong. Marathon training is the hottest new “thing” on the fitness scene. Entire clubs and groups are dedicated to finding marathons and training for them like mad. If you’re a Horse, Dog, or Tiger, this is probably your sport. You’ve got the endurance to keep up and the enthusiasm to get behind good causes that many races support. Go get ‘em!
Have you ever seen anyone doing capoeira? They kind of look like crazy people. But you know what? They’re in amazing shape! This workout trend is really gaining momentum on the West Coast, and Pigs, Sheep and Rabbits should get on board. It’s basically a Brazilian martial art that combines dance, music, and lots of leg power. Just in time for that bikini!
Now don’t roll your eyes and be all like, “I’ve already done that.” Have you really? If you’re a Rooster, Ox, or Snake, this zen-like-but-booty-kickin’ workout is one heck of a ride. Take a spin class (no, it doesn’t count as spinning if you’re just riding an exercise bike at home), and you’ll really know the meaning of having a sore tush. Ready? Set? Spin!
One more thing? When you have that rockin’ bod this summer, don’t forget to wear sunscreen. Skin cancer is so not sexy.
