The fitness world has been adapting and looking for new routines to satisfy the needs and tastes of all types of athletes —as in the case of Aqua Forza. But a very marked trend in recent years is those disciplines that include a bit of creativity to activate the muscles in different ways and work them in a better way. You will no longer have an excuse not to start exercising with these little-known fitness activities.
A discipline that will help you improve coordination and increase cardiovascular endurance. It is a class with a mini trampoline in which some choreography is done to strengthen the legs and abdomen to the rhythm of the music.
The classic ballet barre is the main ally of this discipline and each session combines some movements of this classic dance with Pilates and yoga. It is perfect for strengthening the muscles of the arms, thighs, and abdomen, as well as helping to improve posture and avoid back pain.
It is a training system based on the principles of dance, swimming, tai chi, and gymnastics. Imagine all the benefits! Each session is worked with a Pulley Tower, which is an exercise machine that supports the routine so that the circular movements that are carried out strengthen the arms, abdomen, and legs. In addition to improving coordination and flexibility.
An activity that is full of music! And the protagonists are percussion sticks, these are used to keep the rhythm of each exercise by playing them against the floor while activating muscles of the abdomen, arms, and legs. Mix the music with yoga and Pilates movements.
Bosu is the name of the main tool of this routine, it is a platform with a soft surface in the shape of a half-sphere. Similar to fitball, bosu was originated to focus even more on aerobic, functional, and balance exercises.
Focused on the core muscles, it helps shape and tone the core, shoulders, and hips. It is a session with isolated exercises —such as crunches— that help activate the central area of the body. The routine is reinforced with the use of elastic bands and background music.
