THE BEST BODY-TONING CLASSES
Sculpt any muscle you want (yes, really!) at these Shape-tested group exercise classes.
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.
