Here are 8 workout programs that will get you the body you’ve always wanted!
8. Membership at a 24-Hour Gym
Leave no room for lame excuses like no time after work or the gym was closed by getting a membership at a 24-hour gym. Yes, such a beautiful thing exists! You can burn your carbs and tone your muscles anytime of the day.
Heads up, night owls! There’s no more need to drag your sleepy butt to the gym on your least favorite parts of the day (aka mornings).
7. Personal Training
If you’re a newbie at going to the gym or even the concept of working out, then hiring a personal trainer is definitely something you have to invest on. Your trainer will make the gym a less intimidating and mind-boggling place. More importantly, you’ll need the guidance and assurance of a trainer to ensure that your exercises are getting you closer to your body goals.

6. Pole Dancing
Erase the thought of pole dancing being only for ladies period or for very, very liberal women. Pole dancing is actually a great workout that men and shy girls should also give a try because of its many health benefits. Not only will it shed off pounds, pole dancing builds and tones muscles, improves flexibility and boosts confidence. You and your bae will love yourself for getting into pole dancing!
Release all your stress through a workout that’s both relaxing and toning. Yoga can be the perfect de-stresser after work while you harness your flexibility, strengthen your muscles, get some cardio done and build a good metabolism. It also has several variants, which you can all try to find your favorite one. There’s bikram or heated yoga, antigravity yoga where you’re suspended in air through cloth ropes, and many more.
Save now for continuous yoga classes in 2016, and build the right foundation. You can continue being a yogi at home or anywhere once you’ve gotten the hang of it.
This workout is also a healthy way to let out stress. Mad at someone or frustrated about work? Transform all of that angst into strength and endurance as you complete your boxing workout! You’ll get a good amount of cardio done without getting bored for sure. Plus, most boxing routines include high intensity interval training (or HIIT) before it’s time to use boxing gloves at the ring with a trainer.
3. A Sport
Start buying the gear that your chosen sport requires and saving up for the necessary fees.
2. Muay Thai
Ease the pain of your heart when you pay for your Muay Thai classes with the thought that not only are you paying for a workout program, you’re also financing your self-defense skills! Have tons of fun looking like a ninja slash karate kid as you burn away the fat and tone your muscles.
1. Indoor Cycling
