9 New Ways To Work Out In December

From new studios to fitness challenges, here are nine ways to refresh your workout routine this December…

Bondi Rise

The destination to know for a stronger body and calmer mind, Bondi Rise offers small group classes that include reformer and mat Pilates, barre and yoga. A stone’s throw from Hampton Court station, the light-filled studio is a serene spot to spend an hour or two. For a full-body burn, sign up to a reformer class – with just five state-of-the-art machines in the studio, expect plenty of hands-on guidance – or for toning, try Pilates sculpt. The dynamic Barre Burn classes, meanwhile, will improve posture and flexibility, while calming yin yoga sessions are the perfect way to unwind. Can’t make it to the studio? Sign up for an online membership to get access to over 185 workout videos.

Alo Yoga

Founded in LA by two childhood friends just over a decade ago, Alo Yoga has fast become the go-to brand for workout gear that’s as supportive as it is comfortable. Its collections, loved by the likes of Kylie Jenner and Hailey Bieber, are thoughtfully designed – think flattering compression fabrics, double-knit materials to keep you cool and four-way stretch jersey. Until now, the brand was only available online in the UK but has just opened its first, two-storey, bricks-and-mortar store on the King’s Road. A flagship store will be opening on Regent Street next spring and will house a gym and wellness club, too.

A firm favourite on the capital’s fitness scene for more than ten years, Heartcore is where those in-the-know go for Pilates classes that promise a powerful, toned body. Now, it’s added three new mat classes to its timetable – proof you don’t always need the reformer to see results. Adapted from Heartcore’s signature workout, Strength incorporates functional movements to sculpt and shape, while Cardio is a full-body workout that uses low-impact cardio to condition and improve metabolism. Flow, meanwhile, is designed to improve flexibility, balance and body awareness. The best bit? Heartcore studios are warmed with infrared heating to aid deep relaxation and detoxification.

A running club is the perfect way to improve your skills, help you reach your training goals and meet like-minded people, and These Girls Run is the community worth knowing.

Strong Pilates

A Pilates-inspired, cardio-infused training concept, Strong Pilates is made for fitness junkies. Taking the concept of the reformer to a new level, the Strong workout is done on a machine that’s part reformer, part rowing machine, to create the ultimate strength and cardio combination. Having already taken over Australia and New Zealand, Strong recently opened in Islington and has plans to open over 100 studios across the UK in the next few years. A full-body workout that’s both high intensity and low-impact, each 45-minute class will allow you to maximise your training in minimal time.
