One of the best places to start the year of activities is a consult with your doctor and/or certified trainer. If you are a gym-rat that enjoys camaraderie then try the trendy CrossFit. Who knows? Maybe you will find it so inspiring that you will enter the annual CrossFit games.
If your body is aching, it's time to experiment with one of the several types of yoga, including: hot yoga, Bikram yoga, Moksha yoga, or CorePower yoga. Yoga can work wonders for some, but remember to ease into the workouts because the movements take time to master. "Broga" is a buzz word used in an interesting article found on the Medical Daily website.
Fitness classes are often a great source of variety, and Active.com provides examples in 33 Trendy Fitness Classed You Have to Try. The latest trend is to forgo the traditional gym membership, and instead try some of the pay as you go activities or classes. Check out discount websites like Groupon and LivingSocial to find these classes in your city. While the internet is full of endless ideas, consider some of the time tested activities like a bike ride, run or swim.
Perhaps the most time tested workout spark is to get a partner in fitness. Ideas for a partner include a CrossFit community, friend or trainer. Enjoying fitness activities together is also likely to create a healthy spark in your romantic relationship. Finding your partner can even happen by meeting someone during the activity, keeping in mind gym etiquette.
