Need to burn all those holiday sins away? As always, we got your back. We all have a love-hate relationship with exercising, but a proven way to bring back the fire is by switching things up every now and then. If you've already tried yoga, running, and the good ‘ol trick of hitting the gym last year, then why not engage yourself in something new this 2016? Below, the new entries in our workout bucket list.

1. Cycling

The whole cycling thing blew up last year in the Philippines and everyone’s still raving about it. The full body workout will tone your thighs, arms, and burn all those fat in less than 60 minutes. Even It girl Isabelle Daza is now a cycling coach!

TRY: Electric Studio at 2/F Forbes Town Road, Fort BGC or Ride Revolution at 3/F Dance Studio 8465 Kalayaan Avenue, Makati

2. Zen-Ga and Piloxing


The hybrid workouts are also in! Why just go for pilates or boxing alone when you can do both in one session? Zen-ga, on the other hand, is just like yoga but with bigger equipments—think of it as toys for the big girls.

TRY: B+B Studio offers Zen-Ga at Main Studio, G/F Bonifacio Technology Center, 31st street corner 2nd Avenue, BGC, and Piloxing at Infinity Studio, 11F Infinity Tower, 25th street, BGC

3. Anti-Gravity Yoga

Even if you think yoga is not for you, we suggest you try its anti-gravity variation first before scratching it off your list. Like doing acrobatics in a silk hammock, it will give you that same relaxing feeling along with fun stunts that will improve your posture and flexibility.  

TRY: Beyond Yoga, QC, Alabang, BGC, Rockwell, Salcedo, and SM Mall of Asia

4. Hiking


We called it the new favorite celebrity pastime for 2015, and it can be yours, too! There are so many mountains to climb in the Philippines. Choose one and set off on your first adventure, and we promise, you’ll be addicted in no time.

TRY: Booking a trip to your mountain of choice at Trail Adventours

5. Krav Maga

Remember Preview’s Fashion is Power video series featuring Georgina Wilson, Ellen Adarna, and Liz and Laureen Uy? Go ahead and learn how to kick some butt, too, by joining a Krav Maga class. The fact that it will make you sweat buckets is just an added bonus.

TRY: Krav Maga Philippines, San Juan, Katipunan, Eastwood, or Alabang
