Try Something New

  1. Basic Training: Build Your Own Boot-Camp Workout

    The secret to the trendy "boot-camp" workout is mixing calorie-burning cardio intervals with moves that build strength using the weight of your own body.

  2. Biking Your Way to Better Health

    Riding a bicycle can be an excellent fitness activity. Cyclists can burn 400 to 700 calories an hour when they're pedaling at a good pace.

  3. Dancing Is the Star

    Besides being fun, dance offers a range of benefits—physical, mental, and social—that other activities can't match.

  4. Exercise Ideas for Older Adults

    Finding ways to get exercise as you get older is a smart and easy way to stay fit and improve your health.

  5. Feel the Power of a Short Circuit

    Circuit training refers to a series of exercises done one after the other with little rest between. A complete series makes up one circuit.

  6. Get in the Swim

    Besides providing a good workout for your heart and lungs, water offers constant, gentle pressure on every part of the body, which, in turn, helps improve circulation from the outside in, eases joint and back pain, and increases flexibility and range of motion.

  7. It’s Snow Fun: Skiing and Snowboarding

    Snow sports can give you an excellent workout. They are cardio, so they work your heart and lungs, but they also strengthen your bones.

  8. Jumping Rope: A Kid Favorite with Grownup Benefits

    A jump rope is simple and rugged. You can work out with it at the gym or in your living room. And it can fit into your purse or even your pocket.

  9. Make a Splash with a Water Workout

    Although many people enjoy water aerobics classes, you don't have to be in a group to work out.

  10. Move to the Music: Dancing as Exercise

    The benefits of dancing go well beyond heart health and physical fitness. Dancing, especially group dance activities, provides opportunities for people of all ages to be socially and mentally engaged, as well.

  11. Swing’s the Thing

    Dance and fitness instructors say swing dancing or swing aerobics can elevate your heart rate quickly.

  12. Tai Chi: Exercise for Mind and Body

    Tai chi is called a mind-body type of exercise because it combines meditation, focused breathing, and physical movement. Because it’s also a low-impact exercise, it may be particularly well suited for older adults, but it’s a beneficial exercise for people of all ages.

  13. Take a Lap With Indoor Cycling

    In indoor cycling workouts (also known as spinning classes), participants ride stationary bicycles specially designed to mimic outdoor bikes.
