New Workout Routine 1: Hula Hooping
Perfect for: Kids at heart, who don’t want to feel like they’re working out. Any hoop works — even the one collecting dust in your garage right now.
Try it out: Sample a hula-hooping class (Gold’s Gym offers them) or buy the Jane Fonda Workout Cardio Hoop ($24.25, Amazon.com) for a hoop and DVD routine you can use at home.

New Workout Routine 2: Urban Rebounding
Perfect for: High-energy types who dislike high-impact activities.
Another new workout trend that feels more like fun than fitness is urban rebounding, during which you bounce on a mini-trampoline to work all of the major muscle groups, improve balance and burn calories.
The martial arts-inspired routine was developed more than 30 years ago as a low-impact exercise for use in rehabilitative centers, but urban rebounding is now picking up speed in the mainstream.
Try it out: Gyms nationwide such as Bally Total Fitness and Equinox offer classes.
Jillian Michaels Body Revolution is a 90-day extreme weight loss system that will overhaul your entire body in just 30 minutes a day! Click/tap here to find out more on Amazon.com >>
New Workout Routine 3: Kettlebells
Perfect for: Those who want to tone up fast — and are willing to work for it.
You’ve probably heard of kettlebells, the cannonball-shaped weights that come with handles attached so you can swing them as you lift.
However, if you’re not using them in your workout, you’re missing out on an opportunity to sculpt a beautiful bod in record time. The weights have been shown to incinerate about 20 calories a minute — that’s what you would burn if you were running six-minute miles.
The key is to use the kettlebells for interval training with total-body movements.
Try it out: If your gym doesn’t have a designated kettlebell class, hire a personal trainer for one session to learn moves you can incorporate into your solo routine.
New Workout Routine 4: TRX
Perfect for: Serious exercisers looking to test themselves with a tougher workout.
TRX tools were developed to help Navy SEALS achieve several fitness goals at once: improved strength, balance, flexibility and core stability. Now, the anchored suspension bands, which use gravity and your own body weight to give you a great workout, are popping up at gyms across the country.
Try it out: Crunch has several classes that use the equipment, and we’ve also spotted TRX equipment at some Gold’s Gym and 24 Hour Fitness locations.
