Post Type

Keeping fit and healthy can be a struggle when faced with the stresses of daily life. While you may be busy maintaining an active social or work life, it is still important to find the time to exercise your body.


Fitness boot camps can provide the comforts of a break from modern life, such as those offered by Prestige Boot Camp, with intense workouts, healthy diets and fitness instructors on hand. But there are also a number of routines that can be performed on a daily basis. Here are the top exercise routines for 2017.

Virtual Boxing

Worried about not being able to find time to hit the gym? Fear not, The Box Method have found a means of bringing an easy workout routine to your home. With video instructions from an online video teacher, the trainee is provided with a pair of dumbbells and an intense 3-minute video workout. Not only can this help burn over 600 calories, but it can also improve muscle mass, bodily strength and endurance.

Dance Cardio

Exercise is always at its best when it feels like entertainment rather than being a chore. With dancing, any sort of activity can change from an uphill battle to a fun burst of energy. Intense 20-minute workouts to pop, hip-hop and electronic songs can be performed as part of a group, or from the comfort of your own living room. Joining a dance group is perfect for building endurance, muscle toning and lung stamina. Like Zumba, it is also a very sociable sport. Be prepared to make some new friends while burning those calories!


Looking for an additional intense body workout? Zumba classes are a mixture of fast Latino moves, combined aerobics and muscle toning actions. Burning over 600 calories per session, Zumba can offer a number of exercise variations, including Zumba Step and can even bring the action to the water in Zumba Aqua.  Not only is Zumba known as a stress reliever, but it can even improve your flexibility and the condition of bodily joints. Check out the Zumba map to see if there is a club near you for you to test out your dancing feet.

Aqua jogging

Consisting of a number of timed sprinting laps through the water, as well as lengths that isolate the top half lower half of the body in the water, Aqua Jogging is used by professional athletes, such as Olympic champion James Guy, in their training to improve their cardiovascular fitness, endurance and muscle strength. The exercises are simple but require endurance to be continued in laps. As the exerciser runs, they are required to lift up their knees in a thrusting movement against the momentum of the water. The number of laps will depend on the strength of the jogger and their set time for their work out.


Burning through 500 calories a lesson, a number of exercise clubs offer group sessions with fitness supervisors, but can also present alternative training regimes under water. Whether under water spin classes, underwater cardio workouts, or even good, old-fashioned swimming classes with Prestige Boot Camp.  There is a water workout for everybody!
