By Mekita Rivas, VIDA editor and member
Hollywood’s biggest night is just around the corner, and in the spirit of the upcoming 90th Academy Awards taking place this Sunday, we’ve rounded up some awards of our own. Check out these Oscar-worthy workouts and get inspired to try something new! After all, you don’t have to attend a fancy awards show to get yourself red carpet ready.
Best Heart Pumping Workout: HIIT
High intensity interval training, otherwise known as HIIT, was recently named this year’s “most popular trend in fitness.” And at VIDA, we’ve got you covered with our signature HIIT and Xtreme classes. You’ll burn tons of calories, increase your anaerobic threshold, and improve your overall strength and cardiovascular conditioning. You’ll alternate between powerful blasts of cardio to elevate your heart rate and strength training circuits to build muscle during active recovery.
Best Customizable Workout: Personal Training
Personal training at VIDA is a completely customized approach to meeting an individual’s needs. Your personal trainer will develop a systematic and carefully planned program designed to help you be the best you possible. You will be empowered to reach — and go beyond — your goals in no time!
Best Musical Workout: Indoor Cycle
If you’re looking for a workout that you can sing along to, check out VIDA’s intense indoor cycle classes! These cardio calorie shredders are led by expert instructors who infuse variety into their routines and their playlists. State-of-the-art Matrix IC7 bikes allow you to track your energy and exertion in real time using personalized color zones, so you can engage in a little friendly competition with your fellow classmates.
Best Decompressing Workout: Yoga
Practicing yoga has numerous benefits, including a calmer mental state, improved flexibility, deeper expressions of postures, and the encouragement of positive attitudes. At VIDA, we offer a variety of yoga classes taught by some of the best instructors in the District. We highly recommend taking a yoga class with a friend and letting those good vibes flow!
Best Community Building Workout: Small Group Training
VIDA Small Group Training combines the individualized instruction of Personal Training with the community feel of Group Fitness Classes. These programs also make for an ideal lower cost alternative to Personal Training while still delivering incredible results! We currently offer seasonal Boot Camps, TRX suspension training, Pilates Reformer, and other educational workshops to help you make the most of your membership.
