For most of us, car­dio is the most straight­for­ward type of ex­er­cise to blast calo­ries and get a good sweat. But if you want a toned body, sim­ply do­ing lots of car­dio and re­duc­ing your calo­rie in­take will not cut it. Strength train­ing ex­er­cises are cru­cial when it boils down to melt­ing away the flab – think shapely shoul­ders, de­fined abs and sculpted limbs.

Hav­ing said that, ton­ing up may be chal­leng­ing when there are so many things to con­sider. The mus­cle groups you’re tar­get­ing, the num­ber of rep­e­ti­tions or the weight you should be car­ry­ing are sim­ply the tip of the ice­berg.

Un­like car­dio, body-ton­ing ex­er­cises usu­ally re­quire more tech­nique and equip­ment, mak­ing them tricky to do on your own. That’s why the Shape team went around the is­land to suss out the most le­git group ex­er­cise classes that will firm you up.

These classes are spe­cially tai­lored to help you score taut mus­cles you’ll be proud to flaunt. Most im­por­tantly, they will im­prove your over­all strength and me­tab­o­lism by leaps and bounds – pro­vided you keep to a reg­u­lar rou­tine over time. From low-in­ten­sity barre to high-in­ten­sity box­ing-HIIT, these ex­cit­ing work­outs will make you look for­ward to hit­ting the gym, week af­ter week.
