Think you can't get in on the fast-growing sport of stand-up paddleboarding just because you live nowhere near the coast? Actually, paddleboarding can be found on lakes and rivers across the country.

Maybe you're getting a little tired of your usual yoga routine, or perhaps you've always wondered what it would be like to feel like a Cirque de Soleil performer.

Lagree Fitness is a new system that combines Pilates, strength training and cardio all in one revolutionary machine. Visit the Lagree Fitness website to find a studio near you offering the 50-minute group class that creator Sebastian Lagree calls "Pilates on steroids."
Think trampolines are just for kids? Many indoor trampoline parks are now offering fitness classes for grown-ups too. If you're looking for a workout that's a whole lot of fun, give trampolining a try. Just remember — all that bouncing can be hard on "the girls." Make sure you suit up with a great sports bra before hitting the tramps. Options like the personalized New Balance Pscyhe sports bras are designed to help keep motion to a minimum.
(One more trampoline warning: If you've had kids, make sure you visit the ladies room before you start bouncing. Just sayin'.)
