Workouts That Will Amp Up Your New Year Routine

Strength Training
Yoga
Interval Training
Dance
Cycling
Barre

New year. New workout? We’ve all heard the “new year, new me” mantra before, but this January, we are *seriously* rethinking how to kickstart 2019 when it comes to our well-being. 

Instead of committing to a routine that has us feeling bored by February, we are all about committing to a few types of fitness that we really like (or dare we say, love?). If you're looking to skip the standard gym gear and try something new in 2019, there’s no better time than now! From trendy group classes to finding the beat, here are five of our favorite workouts for all fitness levels that will keep you looking forward to your next sweat session. Enjoy! 


Get ready to row.

Rowing is our go-to way to make any cardio routine a little more exciting. A low-impact exercise making its way into more and more circuit training classes, rowing can act as a form of total-body strength training. Plus, boutique studios—like Current in NYC—are creating killer rowing sessions that blend cardio and choreography so you’ll be feeling stronger with each stroke. Now, who’s ready to make some waves?


Just dance

One of our top wellness predictions for 2019, dance fitness is super buzz-worthy this new year—and it sounds like the trend is here to stay. Whether you’re looking for an intro to hip-hop or just want to find your groove while getting your heart rate up, dance classes can keep you on your toes when it comes to your wellness routine. Super cool studios, like 305 Fitness with locations in NYC, Boston, and D.C., specialize in Insta-worthy dance workouts. And did we mention, 305’s dance cardio classes feature a live DJ!?


Fast fusion fitness.

Group fitness is getting a makeover this new year. Featuring shorter class times and badass blended workouts, making your exercise a little more interesting has never been easier...or more effective. Think: a 45-minute yoga + HIIT session or cycling + barre class. Many yoga studios mix it up with their hybrid classes—heated blends of free weights and vinyasa yoga flow. We love these types of workouts—they keep us on track on even the busiest day. 


Multi-sensory meditation.

Another 2019 wellness prediction, taking care of ourselves mentally and emotionally is becoming our top priority this new year. It can be easy to focus on your physical fitness, but we are striking a better balance when it comes to our well-being and redefining our rest days. With mediation classes and studios that are offering immersive experiences with elements like sound baths and aromatherapy, finding your zen zone will be extra awesome, all year long.

 

Outdoor adventures.

It’s time to take your workout outside. With many boutique fitness studios using the great outdoors for inspiration, you can sweat it out in bootcamp and HIIT classes that are embracing the fresh air, no matter the season. But it’s not just about circuit training—studios are taking it to the water, too, with classes like SUP (stand up paddle board) Yoga and more. From the park to the beach, being a tourist in your own city with a change in scenery is a great excuse to get your exercise on any day of the week. 


From discovering a meditation session near you to trying your first dance class, easily find and book any workout or wellness service on the MINDBODY app and MINBODY.io.

Community Close-up: The Kyles of Kyle House Fitness

Wellness

Kyle House Fitness is Chattanooga’s premier fitness program offering group fitness classes and personal training with the best-certified instructors and trainers in the area. Located on Chattanooga’s thriving Southside, Kyle House Fitness is more than a gym, they pride themselves on building a welcoming and inclusive community. The owners of this gym, Kyle House and Kyle Miller (AKA The Kyles), may sound familiar to you since they recently wrote a blog post for us on how to be an LGBTQIA+ ally in the fitness space.

Since they happen to be one of the most influential duos in the fitness industry, we were eager to sit down and learn more about what wellness means to them. Ready to get to know The Kyles better? Let’s dive in.

Tell us about yourself. What led you to where you are now? 

We have always had a love for fitness. From an early age, we were both very athletic (swimming, gymnastics, and cheerleading). Once we graduated, we slowly transitioned into training young athletes and then later started working on our careers. Kyle House started personal training at a large gym and began building a solid career as a personal trainer and groups fitness instructor. Kyle Miller started working in marketing and communications ranging from politics, law enforcement, and tech becoming a leading public relations professional. After working in their fields for about 10 years they decided to combine their love of fitness with their experience and built one of the most successful fitness facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Wellness to us has always been about leading a life that is balanced. It's not all fitness, it's not all work, it's not all fun...
What inspired you to open your business? What motivates you day-to-day?  

During our time working at other gyms and visiting other facilities that many were either missing qualified and motivating trainers, topnotch customer service, or a workout that was balanced and would lead to results for everyone whether they were casual fitness enthusiasts or hardcore athletes. We are motivated on a day-to-day basis by the idea that we can always be better. The experience can get better, the community can grow stronger, and we can continue to show people that fitness is more than just a way to look good, it's therapy.

What does wellness mean to you? Has it evolved over the past couple of years? 

Wellness to us has always been about leading a life that is balanced. It's not all fitness, it's not all work, it's not all fun... it's not all healthy food, it's not just junk food—it's about finding a way to reach your own personal goals while still having a healthy relationship with fitness, friends, family, and food—otherwise known as the four Fs.

If you're in the Chattanooga area, you should definitely check out Kyle House Fitness to take your wellness routine to the next level. You can book classes on the Mindbody app or through their KHF app.
