Our August collection features a groovy, high impact lava print, so this month, we’re sharing some new high intensity workouts that will turn up the heat while helping you blast extra calories this summer.
This fast-paced workout features rowing and strength exercises done in 90 second intervals. Expect a little of everything, from rowing races to bosu-ball jump squats as you rush from one workout station to another.
There’s no motivation like seeing your workout stats (and everyone else’s) on a giant video screen as they happen. Orangetheory sets you up with a heart rate monitor before the class starts, and your efforts are tracked as they unfold. The workout itself is a mix of rowing and running, with the ultimate goal being to stay in the “orange” zone that represents 82% to 91% of your maximum heart rate for as long as possible.
The Refine Method
With the tagline “New York’s Smartest Workout,” it’s no wonder The Refine Method is constantly meeting with the top athletic trainers, coaches and scientists, utilizing their findings to create intense circuit-style workouts that get their clients lean, proportional and fit. Former New York City Ballet dance Brynn Jinnett’s Metabolic Resistance Training mixes intense cardio with traditional strength training for a no-frills, fad-free workout.
One of the most challenging workouts I’ve ever done was a very intense boxing class. Piloxing combines the power and speed of boxing with the targeted sculpting and flexibility of Pilates. These classes provide a muscle-toning, fat-burning workout without the intimidation.
