Winter Workouts That Have Us Feeling Simply Wonderful

Fitness
Yoga
Cycling
Barre
Dance

It’s official: December is here. Between wrapping presents, baking cookies and booking flights back home, your busy holiday schedule can easily affect your go-to workout routine. Whether you want to try a new studio before years end, sneak in a late-night sweat session before NYE or fly home to see family and friends, it’s important to find time for you and your self-care. 

If you’re ready to embrace those feel-good winter fitness vibes, here are four of our favorite fitness classes that have us feeling wonderful well after the ball drops. 


Hot Yoga

You can always find us flowing hard in a heated practice, especially when the temperature drops. Release your stress, get a good stretch, and let all of your worries melt away on the mat. From heated vinyasa to yoga sculpt, discover a class that fits your fitness level and needs. Plus, the after-class glow will have you feeling simply magical and super relaxed. 

 

Dance

Our mantra: When in doubt, you must dance it out! What better way to burn your holiday worries away, gain confidence and have fun this time of year than by getting your groove on? With studios that offer everything from beginners hip-hop to ballroom, you can book a class that fits any skill level—and any taste in music. You might just learn some new moves for your next party. 

 

Barre

You’ll be feeling merry and bright—and your muscles will be burning in the best way possible—after a barre class. Featuring small, low-impact movements that produce big results, it’s a great workout that will have you feeling accomplished, no matter your activity level. With friendly, hands-on instructors that can help modify the workout to accommodate your needs, you’ll be feeling the holiday spirit long after you step out of the studio. 

 

Cycling 

Kick your workout up a gear and get out of the saddle this holiday season at an indoor cycling class! High-energy instructors will lead the way, encouraging your every move. You might even get a specialty playlist at your local studio featuring some *super* seasonal holiday beats. Get ready to slay (or should we say sleigh?) your ride. 


Whatever class you want to try, wherever you are, make your holiday season a little brighter by booking a class on the MINDBODY app. Featuring millions of classes, find a workout that has you feeling wonderful today!
