High Intensity Interval Training
HIIT was a hit in 2014. And will continue to be just as popular this year. HIIT workouts involve short intense bursts of exercise followed by periods of short rest. A workout usually lasts 30 minutes. The idea is to gain better results in less time, which is a pretty appealing notion.
A personal trainer will be able to write you up some programs or join a boot camp that specialises in HIIT.
Stand Up Paddle Boarding Yoga
Yoga remains as popular as ever, with its many health benefits including weight loss, stress relief and flexibility just to name a few. This Summer head down to SUP St Kilda at St Kilda beach for a Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga class. Find your inner zen on a hot Saturday morning, whilst getting some beach time in.

Were you queen of the playground with your skipping rope? Well it’s time again to find your inner child. Jumping rope strengthens both the upper and lower body and burns a truck load of calories. Purchase a rope for less than $20 and try one of these short workouts.
Body Weight Training
Body Weight Training is the number one fitness trend for 2015, according to a recent survey by American College of Sports Medicine’s Health and Fitness Journal.
Body weight training involves using your own body weight or minimal equipment to perform strength training exercises (squats, planks, squats, push ups). Which means not only will it make our arms toned and our thighs taught, it’s low cost.
Download an app or google a beginners program on the internet and head down to your local park twice a week.
