Looking to squeeze a sweat session into your packed schedule without taking up a lot of time? From cardio blasts to barre tucks, there’s no shortage of killer classes that will challenge you, whatever your activity level is.

The next time you’re searching for a workout that fits your calendar, here are six effective fitness classes you can take in under an hour!

 

Barre

Designed to strengthen, lengthen, and make your muscles burn in the best way possible, a low-impact barre class is the perfect workout, any day of the week. Using props that include bands, balls, free weights—and yes, a ballet barre—you’ll be challenged every tuck of the way. Studio Barre offers 45-minute Quick Tuck classes multiple times a week, so you can sneak in a fast fitness session and reap all the benefits of this full-body workout in an encouraging (and fun!) environment. 


Cycling

Trust us; nothing feels better than clipping in, sweating it out, and spinning to the beat. Whether you’re a newbie to the bike or cycle every night after work, a cardio-blag sting, heart-pumping cycling class is an awesome way to push yourself in under an hour. If you’re looking to crush your next cycling class on a tight timeframe, Rush Cycle is your answer. Featuring high-energy instructors, bass bumping playlists, and positive vibes, Rush Ride is 45-minutes of pure pedaling bliss. Plus, Rush Cycle’s themed rides are rad! 


Pilates 

Pilates Proworks

With a focus on power, precision, and control, Pilates will work every element of your mental and physical strength. From reformer machines to the mat, a Pilates class places an emphasis on your core—and so, so much more in a controlled studio setting. Think endurance meets feel-good flexibility. The PilatesPro class at San Francisco-based Pilates ProWorks delivers a powerful 40-minute workout option. Combining resistance, strength, and cardio in a small class setting, instructors are hands-on to help you succeed.  


Dance 

305 fitness workout dance

Short on time but not on energy? If you like to party (and hit your fitness goals), it’s time to turn up the tunes—no dance experience required. Just imagine a live DJ, light show, and a room full of nonstop moving and grooving. Welcome to 305 Fitness. Famous for their signature high-intensity rhythmic CARDIO class, 305 Fitness blends dance cardio with low-impact strength training and conditioning in their 50-minute PWR workout. You’re going to be sweaty and sore, but trust us, it’s worth it. Your glutes and core will thank you.  


Yoga 

Y7 yoga workout fitness

Whether you’re a first-timer on the mat or master yogi, finding time for mindful movement in your fitness schedule is key for any level of activity. An act of sacred self-care, there’s something special about carving out moments where you can focus on your well-being and just let it go (and flow). Now add in heat, candles, and legendary hip-hop tracks. If you’re ready to elevate your yoga experience, join the community at Y7. Featuring positive vibes and sick beats, Y7’s one-of-kind 50-minute We Flow Hard Vinyasa Express is a class where you offer up your intentions and sweat it out in an inclusive (and super cool) space.

Black-owned Beauty and Wellness Businesses to Know

February is Black History Month—a celebration of the achievements and contributions of African Americans in society.  As the beauty and wellness industry becomes a more welcoming and inclusive space for all, we are taking this opportunity to continue to shine a light on the gap of inclusivity and diversity in our industry, and take action to promote, empower, and honor the Black community that shapes and grows wellness.  

While the beauty industry is making improvements—it's important to showcase and support Black businesses and the creatives in this space every day. To honor them, we're shouting out some of our favorite Black-owned beauty and wellness businesses to support. 

1. Beauty Bin 

Beauty Bin is a full-service day spa and dry bar located in Asheville, NC. With a focus on inclusivity for people of all backgrounds, genders, and races, their MO is to match the outer beauty of every client to their inner beauty. From eyelash extensions and hydrafacials to waxing and massage, Beauty Bin is a one-stop-shop for all the spa services.  
 

2. KIKA Stretch Studio  

The KIKA Method® is a gentle assisted stretching process that loosens up tight muscles freeing your body from pain and stress. By practicing this method, clients can experience decreased muscle tension, increased energy, enhanced flexibility, a substantial reduction in stress, improved posture and relaxation, and increased mental clarity. While its headquarters is located in Las Vegas, NV, they have multiple locations sprinkled throughout the US, including Atlanta, New York City, and Dallas—just to name a few.

3. Kimberly Coleman Salon 

At Kimberly Coleman Salon, their philosophy begins with promoting healthy tresses, elegant sets, unique accouterments, perfect pampering of hands and feet, and precision cuts. Known for working with models and celebrities, they fully appreciate and celebrate the diversity of their clientele which also includes super moms and warrior dads. 

4. Pressed Roots 

Pressed Roots was developed with the simple concept in mind—that everyone deserves access to easy, and quality hair care. What started as a single pop-up shop in Boston, grew to a multi-city pop-up tour, and is now slated to be the largest national hair salon franchise specializing in the care and styling of highly textured hair, they launched their first flagship location in Dallas, TX.  

5. SW3AT  

Jersey City resident, Alyza Brevard-Rodriguez started SW3AT. The company began as a fitness apparel line in 2015 but evolved into a sanctuary catered to health and wellness now known as SW3AT Sauna Studio—the first infrared sauna studio in Jersey City. The healing power of infrared heat therapy is a phenomenal option for holistic health proven to strengthen the immune system and provide relief from joint stiffness and muscle pain. It is also supportive of any fitness program as it aids in weight loss (you can torch up to 900 calories in a 45-minute session) while also detoxifying your body from some of the most harmful toxins. 

6. The TEN Nail Bar 

Kelli Coleman and Anika Jackson opened The TEN Nail Bar in Detroit to address a void in their city. They saw a need for a quality, modern nail bar that could also serve as a fun social space for Detroit’s residents and professionals. They designed the TEN to provide their clients with a #Perfect10 experience—where you can relax, enjoy music, a drink, your friends, a clean and precise manicure, and a much-needed break from all your hectic days. 

7. Bettye O Day Spa 

Located in the beautiful downtown Hyde Park Chicago area, Bettye O Day Spa specializes in first-class treatments. They aim to nurture and relax each of their clients with individualized and innovative therapeutic techniques. From body wraps and massages to facials and hydrotherapy, this day spa promises to be a safe place for healing to occur.
