Get off the treadmill once a week and take your cardio outdoors. Find a local high school with an outdoor running track and bleachers or stairs.
Try this butt-kicking track workout:
Jumpstart your morning with 30 minutes of fat-burning calisthenics. Here's a basic boot camp routine that builds strength and endurance while shredding calories.
Single-gear bikes, known as "fixies" because of the fixed single gear, are an inexpensive, low maintenance, super-fun alternative to the common multi-speed bicycle. On a fixed-gear bike, the pedals, the chain and the rear wheel continuously work together without allowing coasting. When you push on the pedals, the pedals move the chain, which turns the rear wheel. When you stop applying force to the pedals, the momentum of the wheel continues to drive the chain and the pedals keep moving. All this means is that you get a triple-duty leg workout while doing your cardio workout! In the city, you ride from stop sign to stop sign -- to get moving you push the pedals, then spin until the next sign. This ride is similar to jumping from a leg press machine to the treadmill over and over again. In the country, it's like a multi-speed bike or spinning class full of belly-slimming cardio. Don't forget to hit some hills -- you'll get strong and toned thighs from pushing the single gear up those hills.
