At the start of 2019, in-person group fitness classes are more popular than ever before. While online training apps are increasing at the speed of light, there’s also a growing thirst for group classes and live interaction with instructors and like-minded fit fanatics!

We all want classes that are fun and engaging but also effective. With busy schedules and limited time, it’s important to find fitness classes and events that give you the biggest bang for your buck. Luckily, the industry is constantly evolving, and the list of classes to choose from continues to grow.

Here are six trending workouts that will not disappoint you this year!

Megaformers

No matter what your fitness level, this class will challenge you and leave you sore — every single time. You will feel every muscle in your body burn — muscles you didn’t even know you had. Megaformers are essentially Pilates workouts on steroids. In each class, you perform Pilates exercises on a low-impact machine. But “low-impact” does not equate to “low-intensity.”

What exactly is a Megaformer? Both Megaformers and classic Pilates reformers are long contraptions made up of stable platforms at the front and back with a gliding carriage in the middle. The main reason everyone needs to try this workout: It incorporates core, cardio, balance, strength and flexibility in every movement.

Must-Try Exercise: The “sexy back.” Think of a modified triceps kickback that works the back of the arms as well as the entire back. On the Megaformer gliding carriage, the balance challenge will rock your core.

Heated Classes

Heated indoor classes aren’t just for hot yoga anymore. Now studios are heating up high-intensity interval training, TRX, Pilates, barre, cycling classes and the like. This is the concept behind TruFusion based in Las Vegas. Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez swear by it!

“Working out in the heat reduces joint inflammation, aids in muscle recovery, reduces risk of injury, increases potential for high-caloric burn and rids the body of toxins.” says Steve Rockman, chief global strategy officer at TruFusion. “We believe that turning up the heat is the key to finding the edge you need to transform your body and your life.”
