Who needs a river, when you can get the same effect by rowing indoors?
The creator of Indo-row says you can burn 400 to 900 calories in a 50-minute class.
It is working every major muscle group in your body.
The Crosby, a catalog that features detailed product descriptions and information, claims Indo-row builds long, lean muscles and provides a good cardio-workout.
If you are looking to strengthen your mind as well as your body, you might try Budokon, where yoga and meditation meet Martial Arts.
“The muscular development is remarkable. It's not bulky. It's sculpted, because there is so much energy used,” explains Maura Barclay, Budokon instructor.
The goal of Budokon is to improve agility, but all that kicking and punching firms the legs and bottom and burns a lot of calories.
If you are watching your weight, an hour of squash might do the trick.
“There's the competitiveness of, I’m going to beat you. And then there's just the absolute flat-out hard workout of hitting the ball and running as hard as you can for an hour,” explains Tom Rumpler, squash professional.
Those who play it say squash is not only good for your health; it is a game you can play for a lifetime.
