Most people know of the “typical” classes, such as spin, Zumba, Pilates and kickboxing, but have you ever wondered what’s beyond those formats? As a trainer and fitness instructor, I’m always super intrigued by new classes; the ones that are funky, different and unique! So I wanted to break down some FUN, NEW & TRENDY group classes, taking the fitness world by storm!


THIS LOOKS SO FUN. I’m no drummer, and hardly a dancer, but there’s something about “pretending” you’re a rockin’ drummer that makes this form or exercise seem all too good to be true! Pound was created by drummers who also had a passion for fitness and music, and decide to combine all of these elements to make one full-body, cardio workout. This format uses weighted drumsticks and incorporates various forms of Pilates, isometric movements, plyometrics (my fav!) and constant drumming movements, to sculpt muscles and TORCH calories. When I say torch, I mean almost 900 calories in a 45 minute class.


Not going to lie, when I looked into this, I was a bit confused, ha! This workout uses functional bodyweight movements inspired by gymnastics, acrobatics, Parkour, capoeira and some booty-kicking breakdancing. SAY WHAT? This format keeps your body “low to the flo” and engages multiple muscles at once, and leaves you drenched!


A workout aimed towards pro surfers and paddle boarders gone public! This workout is a 45 minute, home-based & equipment-free which focuses on multidimensional movement, similar to surfing and board-based sports. It’s meant to dial into your muscles by building explosive strength, endurance & balance to leave you toned, and ready to tackle the swell!

I know I normally go into a more of a “how-to” with my workout articles, but I just had to share these, because sometimes one of the biggest challenges we face is finding a workout that WE love, that understands our lifestyle that we can thoroughly enjoy. What better motivation is there than enjoying what you do?

Check out these funky & fun full-body workout classes and see if they are available in your area! What do you have to lose but a few calories? 😉
