Fitness trends come and go. However, as wacky as some of these moves may be, they’re sometimes based in solid principles. Whether you’re looking to shake up your current routine or start a brand new one in the New Year, these 10 workouts will have you flipping upside-down, shaking your booty and jumping off the walls. Pump up the jams, pals.
2. Barre: Barre is an effective fusion of ballet, yoga and Pilates, using micro-movements to sculpt your bod. In practice, it looks a little like organized thrusting… it can get pretty weird. The Barre3 app ($5 for iOS) is a cool way to get used to the moves before you do them in public.
4. Parkour: You might remember parkour from a failed attempt at a viral video by Andy and Dwight from The Office, but it’s actually a pretty great workout when you take it (relatively) seriously. (via My Modern Met)
